Car Accidents in Alabama
Every day, more than 128 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Alabama. These accidents add up to more than 47,000 victims annually. Although many victims sustain minor injuries that cause a temporary disruption in their lives, tens of thousands of people are forced into area hospitals where they have to undergo medical treatment for their injuries.
The time following an accident can be extremely overwhelming. The mental and physical pain and suffering that victims are forced to endure are made worse by towering medical bills, repair expenses for their vehicles, and being forced out of work to recover. Regrettably, the majority of accidents are a result of reckless and negligent drivers.
