Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Alabama
In Alabama, an average of 950 people lose their lives in auto accidents each year. These accidents are often preventable, but we continue to see families forced to endure the overwhelming consequences of other drivers’ actions. In many cases, drivers engage in reckless behaviors, like distracted or drunk driving, while operating their vehicles. Just taking your eyes off the road for a few seconds can have a life-changing impact on those sharing the road. The unfortunate truth is that more than 80% of traffic-related incidents are a result of drivers’ actions. In many cases, victims who are outside of vehicles are fatally injured by reckless drivers.
When victims lose their lives in accidents caused by the negligent or careless actions of other motorists, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Alabama at their earliest convenience.
