Attorneys at Law

Cell phone accidents are on the rise in Alabama. Over 25 percent of all auto accidents in Alabama are caused by cell phone usage. Although texting is banned for all drivers in 47 states and the District of Columbia, using a cell phone is not. Texting on a mobile device is a dangerous practice and it is also illegal, yet many drivers continue to do it. Talking on a cell phone puts you at a higher risk for a car, motorcycle or pedestrian accident. Whether you were a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian, you could be entitled to financial compensation if distracted driving caused the accident. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, you may have a claim to recover compensation. Contact our firm today to schedule a free, no obligation confidential consultation and case evaluation. You pay nothing until we successfully resolve your legal claims and secure compensation for your injuries. At Ferguson & Ferguson, we have served Huntsville and the surrounding Alabama counties for more than twenty-five years. Call 256-534-3435 now for help with your case.
