Fatal Auto Accidents in Alabama

In 2022, Alabama experienced a total of 31,990 motor vehicle accidents, resulting in injuries to over 10,900 individuals and the unfortunate loss of nearly 600 lives due to sustained injuries.


Various factors contribute to these accidents within our state, with distracted driving being prevalent. This often involves engaging in activities like texting, eating, or talking on the phone while driving, taking the driver’s attention from the road and increasing the likelihood of collisions.


Speeding is another significant factor in many of these incidents. Drivers exceeding speed limits face challenges in maintaining control over their vehicles, leading to difficulties in stopping in time to prevent crashes. Additionally, aggressive driving behaviors, including tailgating and weaving between traffic, further elevate the risk of accidents.
