CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Car accidents are a headache to deal with no matter how small or how large. You will inevitably have car repairs and insurance companies to deal with, and in severe accidents, you may even have mountains of medical bills and physical disabilities to live with. As a victim of a car accident, you should not be forced to handle this type of trauma on your own, but should instead enlist the expertise of a skilled personal injury attorney.
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
You should not be responsible for treating ongoing medical pain for a car accident you did not cause. The responsible party should be held accountable not only for your property damage, but any ongoing injuries that have the potential to impact your future. The other party should additionally be responsible for any lost wages which you may incur as a result of your injuries. However, it is important to keep in mind that Alabama is a contributory negligence state, meaning that if you played any role in the accident, even a minor role such as going 5 miles over the speed limit, you may not be able to receive any compensation for your injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to walk you through the law behind your claim.
