Texting While Driving Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as many as one in five accidents that cause injuries involve reports of distracted driving. One study showed that using a cell phone while driving had the same impact on a driver's reaction time as being legally drunk. Across the country, states are working to pass laws against text messaging while driving. It is an unsafe practice that poses a threat to drivers everywhere.

If you or a loved one was hurt by a driver who was texting, it is vital to seek full compensation for the harm done to you. Distracted driving is negligent driving. By holding negligent drivers accountable, we hope to make the roads safer for everyone.

Other Forms of Distracted Driving Accidents

While texting is one of the most common sources of distraction, it is not the only form of negligent conduct engaged in by drivers. A driver who causes an accident because he or she was reading a map or talking to passengers in the car is also guilty of distracted driving. We have extensive experience in dealing with car accident matters. We will present a compelling case to insurance companies, judges, and juries to help our clients get the compensation they deserve.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
