Car Accidents in Alabama

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries in Alabama. Each year, thousands of people are transported to area medical centers for care after suffering injuries and automobile collisions. There are countless instances where people are left with injuries due to accidents that are completely preventable. Some of the leading factors in car crashes across our state include:


  • Improper Lane Changes: Failing to signal or check blind spots when changing lanes can lead to side-swipe accidents.

  • Poor Road Conditions: Broken or damaged roadways can lead to serious accidents. This can include uneven road surfaces and potholes. There are also many instances where car crashes take place as a result of road signs that are placed improperly.
