Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama
Tens of thousands of people are negatively affected by motor vehicle accidents across the state of Alabama every year. In many cases, people suffer severe injuries that require extensive medical care. Unfortunately, hundreds of people end up passing away as a result of their injuries.
Accidents in the state of Alabama take place for a variety of reasons. The majority of accidents are a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of fatal collisions in our state include:
- Drivers who are traveling too fast for road conditions
- Drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are using their cell phones or distracted by other means while behind the wheel
When people choose to engage in these and other negligent actions, they place the lives of other people sharing the road at risk.
