Car Accidents in Alabama
Suffering injuries as a result of an automobile accident can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Unfortunately, many victims are left with serious injuries that affect their lives forever. Injuries like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even severe compound fractures often result in the need for significant medical care. The unfortunate truth is that many people suffer these and other serious injuries in car crashes due to negligent drivers. Common causes of car crashes that we see take place include:
Distractions: When drivers are using their cell phones or engaging in other actions that take their attention off the road, they can cause serious accidents that result in injuries.
Speeding: There are countless instances where motor vehicle accidents take place as a result of drivers who fail to control their speeds. Traveling above the posted speed limit can result in drivers drifting into other lanes or losing control of their vehicles and causing serious accidents.
Failure to yield: In cases where drivers fail to yield to others, they can crash into them and cause serious injuries. We see countless instances where car crashes take place as a result of drivers who fail to yield to other motorists while switching lanes or turning at intersections.
These are just some of the leading causes of accidents that take place due to the reckless and negligent actions of others.
