Car Accidents in Alabama


In the year 2022, Alabama recorded a total of 31,990 motor vehicle accidents, causing injuries to over 10,900 individuals and resulting in nearly 600 fatalities due to sustained injuries.


Numerous factors contribute to car accidents in our state, with distracted driving being a prevalent issue. This often involves activities like texting, eating, or talking on the phone while driving, diverting the driver's attention from the road and hindering their ability to react promptly to avoid collisions.


Another common factor in many collisions across our state is speeding. Drivers exceeding posted speed limits significantly reduce their control over vehicles, making it challenging to stop in time and prevent crashes. Additionally, aggressive driving behaviors, including tailgating and weaving between traffic, escalate the risk of accidents.
