Drunk Driver Accident in Alabama
Drunk driving accidents are all too common in Alabama. Even though a conviction on drunk driving carries increasingly heavy penalties, the law does not deter people. Drunk driving cases are both criminal and civil cases. Accident victims are often dealing with serious, permanent injuries and in many cases, the accidents are fatal.

Driver impairment is a serious problem in Alabama. In 2009, approximately one-third of the 848 traffic deaths in the state were caused by impaired drivers. Although Alabama laws are increasingly strict and enforcement has stepped up, many individuals continue to cause great suffering due to their reckless acts.

Driving while intoxicated can be caused by many factors. The most common type of intoxication is caused by consumption of alcohol.
