Can losses be recovered after Alabama motor vehicle accidents?

It's difficult to tell how long a person's recovery will take when he or she is injured in a car accident. Many Alabama motor vehicle accidents are fatal, leaving families devastated. Other collisions result in nonfatal injuries, many of which may still be quite severe.

Who pays for motor vehicle accidents caused by negligence?

If another vehicle smashes into yours while you're traveling through Alabama, who is responsible for damages? The answer depends on several factors, including whether evidence exists to prove another party's negligence caused the accident to occur. If so, then you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit in a civil court to seek compensation for any physical, economic or emotional damage you have suffered in relation to the incident. Motor vehicle accidents happen every day; those who are able to obtain maximum recovery for their losses are often those who act alongside experienced representation in court.

Addressing injury needs following Alabama motor vehicle accidents

When one gets behind the wheel of a car on an Alabama roadway, one obviously hopes to reach the planned destination safely. Most drivers are aware there's always a risk for motor vehicle accidents to occur. However, many are completely clueless where to turn for help if they become victims of a collision.

Causes of Alabama motor vehicle accidents not always apparent

No one wants to receive a phone call telling of a loved one's sudden and unexpected death. The sad fact is, many Alabama residents will answer phone calls like this due to serious motor vehicle accidents involving their family members. Life as they knew it will never be the same as they navigate the devastating aftermaths of the collisions.

Options for those injured in motor vehicle accidents

One can only imagine how many times a day, somewhere in the nation, two cars crash into each other on the highway. It's a fact that it happens all too often in Alabama. Sometimes, those involved escape unscathed. In many motor vehicle accidents, however, drivers and passengers in two (or more) vehicles are injured.

Motor vehicle accidents often occur in wee hours of the morning

Many teenagers remain out, driving around on Alabama roadways long after the stroke of midnight. These wee morning hours are prime times for motor vehicle accidents. Often, though not always, such collisions are alcohol-related.

Aftermath stress common in Alabama motor vehicle accidents

If you recently survived a collision on one of Alabama's busy roadways, you've probably relived the incident 1,000 times in your mind. In fact, many victims of serious motor vehicle accidents suffer post traumatic stress symptoms that necessitate special counseling in order to recover. Add to that medical bills that are piling up and various complications that may have arisen by having to take time off work, and your stress levels may begin to soar.

Motor vehicle accidents often result in traumatic brain injuries

Most Alabama parents understand how dangerous driving can be. Even so, none are ever quite prepared to receive phone calls informing them their children have been injured in serious motor vehicle accidents. A mother in another state recently shared her personal journey as she helps her teenage son recover from a traumatic brain injury.

Motor vehicle accidents often clouded by unknowns

A high school sports community is grieving a terrible loss after a recent fatal accident in Alabama. The collision involved two tractor-trailers and a sports utility vehicle. There were extenuating circumstances in the collision, as is often the case in serious motor vehicle accidents, that prevented first responders from obtaining a clear vision of the accident scene.  

Drunk driver suspected in five motor vehicle accidents

Many families in Alabama and throughout the United States have suffered devastating losses in car crashes caused by drunk drivers. People who drive with blood alcohol content levels exceeding legal limits are often menaces to themselves and all others on the road. Five motor vehicle accidents occurred back-to-back recently, all suspected to have been caused by the same woman.
