Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Auto accidents have many causes, including texting, talking on the phone, eating, weather, drunk driving, aggressive driving, speeding, driver drowsiness, poor road conditions, and negligence. Automobile drivers in Alabama are required to know the rules of the road, and they are required to abide by these rules while operating a motor vehicle. Automobile accidents and injuries caused by the failure to follow these rules can, in a split second, cause lasting damage, including injury and property damage to your car, and can result in medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Negligent driving can be a driver not paying attention due to countless different distractions including eating, driver texting, cell phone misuse, changing the radio station, children, reading, or even putting on cosmetics. Many times accidents are caused by a combination of these. If we represent you in your case, we will fully investigate every potential avenue of liability and hold the responsible parties fully accountable to the maximum extent.

Alabama Drunk Driving Automobile Accidents

Drunk driving is a serious problem throughout Alabama, and contributes to many fatal and injury accidents every day in Alabama. The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration in the United States for drivers 21 years of age or older is .08 g/dL (grams per deciliter) or higher.  Additionally, research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggests that the risk of being killed in a solo-vehicle crash for drivers with a BAC between .05 and .09 is 11 times higher than drivers without any alcohol in their system. If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driver getting behind the wheel, we can help you obtain justice and compensation for your injuries. If we can not settle your case, we will not hesitate to take your accident case to trial. Our extensive preparation of your accident claim in anticipation of a jury trial tends to increase the amount an insurance company offers to settle it. We work with experienced accident investigators, engineers, medical professionals and others who assist in creating a winning posture for trial. When you need a Alabama automobile lawyer who knows accident law, call us first to find out your rights.
