Just how common are car accidents in the state of Alabama and what are the potential injuries? Some of the statistics may surprise you. According to the Alabama Department of Public Safety, in 2008 there were a total of 123,943 traffic related accidents. Within these accidents, 35,615 people suffered a degree of personal injury while 964 lost their lives. From this data we can see that:
- About 14 accidents occur every hour across the state
- 4 people suffer a form of injury in an accident every hour
- More than 2 people die on the streets and roads of Alabama every day
The severity of an injury suffered by a victim of another driver’s negligence can greatly vary. However, in recent times the experienced auto accident lawyers at our law firm have successfully represented automobile accident victims who suffered:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Broken or Fractured Limbs
- Burn Injuries
- Wrongful Death
Sadly, a great number of car accidents do in fact end fatally. Due to this, if you have lost a loved one, it is vital that you contact our expert wrongful death car accident attorneys as soon as possible. In many cases a successful claim of wrongful death against the responsible party is the only way to recovery financially from this type of accident.
Negligent Drivers Cause Accidents
While many aspects of irresponsible or unsafe driving contribute to the total number of car accidents residents of Alabama see each year, a number do cause significantly more than others. Data collected by the Department of Public Safety shows that the top contributors to all accidents in the state are:
- Driver not in control of vehicle
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Unseen object or person (driver inattention)
- Following too close
Not strictly limited to accidents caused by these factors, our law firm handles a wide variety of personal injury type cases stemming from car accidents of any nature.
