Personal Injury Attorneys for Distracted Driving Accidents
At Jackson & Foster Law, we are committed to helping victims injured due to someone else’s negligence. While most people think of drunk driving as a leading cause of accidents, it turns out that distracted driving is even more dangerous.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, texting while driving is six times more dangerous than driving under the influence. To crack down on these dangerous habits, Alabama distracted driving laws have become more comprehensive.
However, even though texting makes someone more likely to cause a crash, the behavior prevails. If you’ve been injured, you need a Mobile distracted driving accident attorney to stand up for your rights and go head-to-head against the insurance companies.
Our aggressive legal team will pursue maximum compensation for your claim, and we’ll be with you every step.
Find Out What Your Case Is Worth
Distracted driving includes anything that diverts a driver’s attention away from the task of driving. Literally, anything can fall under this umbrella, and the most common things that cause a driver to become distracted include:
- Talking on the phone
- Eating and drinking
- Fiddling with radio controls
- Checking GPS directions
- Interacting with other passengers (including children)
- Adjusting on-screen or radio controls
- Applying make-up or other grooming
When a driver causes a crash, it can be challenging to prove they were distracted. However, there are usually telltale signs, and we work to get to the bottom of what caused the accident.
Depending on the circumstances, you could be eligible to receive compensation for the following:
- Property damage
- Medical bills
- Ongoing medical care
- Lost wages
- Future lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
We use our experience and track record to accurately value your claim and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
Bus Accidents and Distracted Driving
Bus accidents can be especially serious because of the sheer size of the bus and the number of people who can potentially become injured. Bus driver negligence is one of several circumstances that can cause a bus accident.
Determining who is liable in a bus accident requires identifying the responsible party, and it might not be straightforward. For example, the bus driver might not be the person who will be financially liable for the accident. If the driver is an employee, the company’s insurance provider may be who we negotiate with. Others may also be held responsible.
Motorcycle Accidents and Distracted Driving
There’s no question that motorcycles are less visible than passenger vehicles, making riders especially vulnerable to distracted drivers. The team at Jackson & Foster Law has 40 years of experience representing riders who were injured by distracted drivers.

“I was driving through Mobile, AL on a long distance road trip when I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. The experience was horrible. The accident occurred halfway between my parents’ house in Texas and my home in Georgia.
I was referred to Jackson & Foster by a friend of mine and was able to obtain him as representation. They answered all of my questions (there were many) and made sure I understood the process of working with the different insurance companies. They kept me updated on the status of the case so I always knew where we were in the process. They made sure I understood that nothing was going to happen overnight and that these things take time.
Jackson & Foster made this horrible experience of mine a lot easier to navigate. I would definitely use them again and would refer them to anyone looking for somebody that is easy to work with and willing to work for you to make sure the outcome turns out in your favor.”
