Distracted Truck Driver Accidents

We Serve Injured Drivers Throughout Alabama

At Cunningham Bounds, LLC, we provide representation for people who have been injured as a result of the negligence, carelessness, or wrongdoing of others, as is often the case in truck accidents.

High speeds, thousands of pounds of freight, and reckless driving make a deadly combination—and motorists in smaller vehicles often pay the price for truck drivers’ irresponsible behavior behind the wheel. If you or someone you love has been harmed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, our team of truck accident attorneys can help you pursue compensation for your injury-related expenses and losses.

Don’t absorb the cost of another driver’s negligence. Call (251) 299-0101 to speak to an attorney and secure the skillful, effective legal representation you need.

Distracted Driving by Truckers Has Deadly Consequences

According to Distraction.gov, nearly 3,500 people were killed as a result of distracted driving in 2016. Many of these incidents involved distracted truck drivers and many more incidents led to severe, debilitating, and often life-threatening injuries among drivers of smaller vehicles.

Distracted driving is irresponsible regardless of who is doing it. However, drivers of enormous, multi-ton vehicles may do more damage when they take their attention away from the road and choose to focus their attention on things like:

  • Texting
  • Talking on the phone
  • Sending messages via voice-to-text features
  • Looking at digital or paper maps
  • Eating
  • Reading
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Watching TV shows or movies
  • Reaching down to grab dropped items

If a truck driver caused your accident because they were not paying attention, they must be held accountable for the damage that resulted You should not be required to pay for their negligence and you don’t have to be afraid of going up against trucking companies, insurance providers, and other formidable opponents. Our Alabama truck accident attorneys can help you build a strong case and pursue fair compensation.
