Injury Accidents in Alabama
Car accidents are reported each day, multiple times per day across our state. According to the Alabama Department of Transportation, there were approximately 150,000 reported car accidents in our state in 2019. About one-third of these crashes resulted in injuries to those involved. In some cases, the injuries were serious and severe, requiring extensive medical treatment. A substantial majority of Alabama car accidents are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. These drivers are responsible for crashes when they violate traffic laws and drive in a careless and reckless manner.
While a car accident in Alabama can be a life-altering event, you may be entitled to receive legal help. Alabama law gives crash victims the opportunity to recover compensation when they were not at fault for causing the accident. Under our state’s law, injured motorists can seek to recover their lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, and potentially more. Only an experienced accident attorney can review your case and properly advise you on how you should proceed.
