Blountsville Car Accidents
In 2018, there were nearly 160,000 reported car accidents in Alabama. This translates to more than 400 reported crashes each day. The number of accidents on Alabama’s roadways has only continued to rise in recent years. The roadways of our state are becoming more dangerous all the time. Drivers should accordingly take precautions that lower their risk of being hurt in a crash. This means driving carefully and defensively and following all traffic laws.
Unfortunately, not all motorists are as careful. At any given time, we are surrounded by careless and negligent drivers. These drivers disobey traffic laws and generally endanger those around them. Negligent drivers are also the ones who are usually responsible for serious injury accidents. These crashes leave innocent victims with major life-altering injuries.
