Ever since the introduction of cell phones and other hand held electronic devices, serious injuries caused by distracted drivers have been consistently rising every year. Despite laws being continually reviewed, updated and passed through our court system to help deter motorists from sending text messages, reading emails while driving, or talking on the phone, drivers that do not pay attention when they are on the road continues to be a very serious problem.
Recently released reports from the National Safety Council have shown that over 860 people were killed on the roads in Alabama, while nationwide, over 990 deaths were associated with distracted driver accidents (where drivers were distracted when behind the wheel prior to the collision). Furthermore, cellphones accounted for 18% of all distraction-related deaths.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a distracted driver, it is very important that you take appropriate action to help protect your right to compensation. The first step you can take is to contact an experienced Mobile car accident lawyer.

Mobile & Baldwin Distracted Motorist Injury Claims
An important factor to consider, is that insurance companies do not like to pay out full compensation, and they often move quickly to make an offer to an injured individual. After a collision, a victim should NEVER speak to an insurance adjuster without first having competent legal representation. These adjusters generally have years of experience in dealing with these types of situations, and are trained to ask specific questions in a certain manner in order to get answers that can be used to against you – which ultimately, can reduce your final settlement amount.
The insurance company of the driver is NOT YOUR FRIEND. Their job is to represent the person responsible for the collision, not you. However, to help even the playing field, the experienced car accident lawyers at Citrin Law Firm are aware of the tactics insurance companies use, and we are here to not only protect your rights, but to also make sure that your case is carefully managed so that you are not taken advantage of. Justice can be served with the assistance of a car accident injury lawyer who will fight for fair treatment and that is where we can help you the most.
