Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama
A fatal accident can have a devastating impact on your family. Unfortunately, hundreds of people in Alabama lose their lives as a result of car crashes every year. There are many dangerous driving behaviors that can lead to fatal car accidents in Alabama. Some of the most common include:
- Running red lights: This is one of the most dangerous things a driver can do. It puts other drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists at risk, and often results in serious or fatal collisions.
- Failing to yield: Drivers who fail to yield the right of way are also putting others at risk. This is especially dangerous when turning at an intersection or merging onto a busy highway.
- Speeding: Speed is a factor in many crashes, particularly those that involve serious injuries or fatalities. Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for conditions makes it difficult to stop or avoid hazards, and greatly increases the severity of any collision that does occur.
