Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama
Alabama’s roadways can be a dangerous and deadly place for motorists. According to recent statistics provided by the Alabama Department of Transportation, there were 850 fatal car accidents reported in our state in 2019. As a result of these crashes, 930 people sadly lost their lives. The number of serious and fatal car accidents in Alabama is not expected to decrease in the coming years. As more and more drivers are on the roadway, it is likely that we will continue to see an unnecessarily high number of fatalities and serious injuries. Most of these deadly accidents are caused by negligent and careless drivers.
There is nothing more devastating than the sudden loss of a loved one due to a crash in Alabama. This is especially true when the crash happens due to the fault of someone else. Well over 90% of all car accidents are caused by negligent driving. This includes drivers who run red lights, drive while impaired, speed or otherwise drive in a reckless manner. It only takes a brief amount of time for negligent driving to result in a crash that has long-term and irreversible consequences.
