Injury Attorneys Representing Victims of Texting Drivers in Georgia Including the Atlanta, Alpharetta and Cumming Areas

Texting While Driving
In Georgia, it is against the law to use your cell phone in certain capacities while driving.  Drivers under 18 and school bus drivers must not use their cell phone at all while operating a vehicle.  No drivers are permitted to use the text message function of their phone while driving.  If you have been injured as a result of an accident caused by someone texting whilst driving, contact Cumming personal injury lawyer for help in fighting for your rights.

Any personal injury resulting from the negligence of another entitles you to file for compensation from the responsible party.  As texting while driving reduces the capacity of the person to operate a vehicle, it can be viewed similarly to an action such as drunk driving.  You may therefore also be entitled to punitive damages in such a case.  If you have tragically lost a loved one to a texting accident, you may file a wrongful death claim.

Defending Your Rights

At Van Sant Law, LLC, we care about seeking justice.  We will listen to your account of what occurred and follow up with an investigation as extensive as necessary.  We may request copies of the notes of the police officer involved and interview witnesses as needed.  We will endeavor to obtain evidence and information to strengthen your case.  An insurance company will be looking to pay out as little as possible.  Knowing what you are entitled to and what you deserve, we will be relentless in pursuing a settlement amount which is fair and acceptable to you.  As the victim of such reckless behavior, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering.  Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid unless you do.
