Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama
According to reports, more than 900 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Alabama each year. These incidents often take place due to the negligence of other drivers. Some of the leading causes of crashes that we see include:
- Driving while distracted by phones or other objects
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while drowsing
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Engaging in reckless driving behaviors
Regrettably, these and other actions take the lives of victims nearly every 9 hours and 20 minutes in our state. When victims lose their lives in accidents, their families are often forced to endure towering financial consequences due to lost earning capacity, funeral expenses, and more. In some cases, families can secure compensation for these and other financial burdens they face after fatal crashes.
