Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama
Losing a loved one in a fatal crash can be extremely challenging to deal with. Regrettably, motor vehicle accidents are the cause of hundreds of deaths each year in Alabama. Far too often, these accidents are completely preventable and caused by careless motorists.
Far too often, pedestrians lose their lives in accidents due to drivers who fail to yield. When pedestrians have the right-of-way to cross the roadway, it is important the other drivers nearby allow them to pass safely. When drivers fail to do so, they can cause devastating accidents that ultimately take the lives of innocent people.
We also see many fatal pedestrian accidents take place as a result of drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs. When drivers fail to adhere to traffic control devices, they can proceed through intersections and cause devastating collisions.
Other common causes of fatal pedestrian accidents in our state include distractions, impairment, and speeding. Unfortunately, reckless actions contribute to nearly 9 out of every 10 accidents reported across the nation.
