Cell Phones Texting Injury Lawyer

Keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road is imperative for safe driving. When a person is texting on their phone, it is impossible to do either. Texting and driving at the same time is illegal in Florida and the reason for many injury accidents. If you have been injured in an vehicle accident caused by a driver who was distracted by texting, they may be liable for paying for your injuries.

Texting or any type of cell phone use while driving is dangerous. While Florida has been slow to move to making it a primary driving offense, cell phone use of any kind can result in accidents. A text message can take a driver’s eyes off the road for an average of 8 seconds. That is time enough to drive the length of a football field when going 55 MPH. When a car puts on their brakes in front of a driver looking at their cell phone, chances are they will be rear-ended. Even worse, they may not see a pedestrian using the crosswalk in front of them or other hazards in time to stop from colliding.

Proving Distracted Driving

At Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law, we handle many types of personal injury cases and have the resources to investigate our client’s case. With a cell phone texting injury accident claim, we can research whether the driver was using their phone at the time of the accident. We can also gather witness testimony, if needed, to prove negligence. Most auto insurance companies will settle out of court once a solid case is made against their client. However, we are willing to go to trial for our clients to obtain the restitution that we believe is owed.

If the person who caused your injury accident was using a cell phone, this can help prove their negligence. Contact our team to discuss your accident claim. Your first consultation is free, just call our Tampa office to schedule your appointment.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
