We Help You Recover the Monetary Compensation You Deserve
The Morris Bart law firm will take on the insurance company and ensure that you get compensated fairly depending on the facts of your case. If they do not agree to a fair settlement out of court, we can file a lawsuit and let a jury decide. You may receive a settlement and be compensated for damages, including:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost earnings
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Vehicle replacement or repair
How We Calculate Your Damages
To estimate a settlement amount for our demands, we look at your documentation such as medical bills, repair estimates, receipts, and other expenses. We will account for everything you’ve spent as a result of the accident as a part of your economic damages. In addition, we will consult with a medical professional about your potential future medical care, so we can include this in your settlement amount as well.
Not all of your losses come with documentation, however. We will talk with you and your loved ones to understand how the accident and your injuries have affected your life and your happiness, so we can account for these losses in your settlement, too.

How the Morris Bart Law Firm Helps Clients Recover Compensation for a Texting Behind-the-Wheel Accident
Once we take your case, we will get right to work. Our lawyers will investigate, gather evidence, and build a strong case on your behalf. By building a strong case and documenting all of your losses, we can help you win the monetary compensation you may deserve for your texting behind-the-wheel accident in Birmingham:
If our team represents you, we will conduct a full investigation of your accident to get to the bottom of what happened and how it happened. Our staff will identify the responsible parties and piece together how they caused the accident. Even if you are not sure if the other driver was texting, it will be part of our investigation. Once we know what happened and who was responsible, we can move to the next step, which is collecting the evidence we need to build a compelling case.
In order to win your case, we need compelling evidence. Strong proof of liability allows us to approach the other driver’s insurance company and demand full and fair compensation. As we investigate your texting while driving accident, we will collect every piece of available evidence to show the other driver’s liability. This may include:
- Copies of police reports
- Photo and video evidence
- Eyewitness statements
- Cell phone records
- Expert witness testimony
- Accident reconstruction
Armed with the evidence we need to prove liability, we will approach the other driver and their insurance company to begin the process of negotiating compensation. Insurance companies are often very aggressive in their efforts to pay as little as possible. But our team will work to get you the full and fair compensation you may be eligible to receive.
Texting While Driving in Birmingham, Alabama
Despite the number of studies showing the dangers of texting while driving, many people fail to recognize how risky it actually is. No one would say it is a good idea to drive the length of a football field on a busy highway with their eyes closed. But if you look down at your phone for three seconds to read a text at 65 miles per hour, that is effectively what you are doing. No wonder the term “distracted driving” is so common in our vocabulary now.
Alabama’s distracted driving laws are complex, but they make it clear that as a driver, your focus should be on the road. If the driver who caused your accident was focused on something else, we may be able to hold them accountable for your injuries and losses.
- Drivers may only use voice-activated handheld devices while driving, with exceptions for powering the device on and off and activating GPS functions.
- Drivers who are 16 years old or who are 17 years old but have been driving for less than six months may not use portable electronic devices for any reason.
- Novice drivers face possible license suspension or an extended graduated license period for violating these rules.
- Commercial drivers are also subject to the same laws.
If you were injured in an accident involving a driver who was texting behind-the-wheel, we may be able to recover compensation based on the facts of your case. A lawyer at the Morris Bart law firm can gather evidence to build a strong case and negotiate with the at-fault driver’s insurance company to reach a fair settlement. If the insurance company refuses to settle, we can take your case to court.
