Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama

Fatal motor vehicle accidents in Alabama take the lives of hundreds of people every year. Far too often, these accidents are a result of negligent and reckless drivers. We see many accidents take place as a result of speeding motorists who fail to maintain control of their vehicles. Impaired drivers are also a leading cause of many accidents due to the fact that being under the influence of drugs or alcohol can significantly impact their judgment and the ability to maintain control of the vehicle. In addition, we see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who fail to yield, run red lights, or engage in other senseless actions.
