Information about Car Crashes in Alabama
For most people in Dothan, driving a car is an everyday occurrence and
is a fact of life. What many forget is that it is statistically a highly
dangerous activity, one that places the driver and passengers at risk of
serious injury or death. The Alabama Department of Public Safety reports that in 2009,
there were a total of 123,690 traffic collisions throughout the state,
which left 848 people dead and 35,153 with various types of injuries.
Car accidents are among the leading causes of accidental injury or death
across the country every year. Collisions happen for many reasons, but
some are more common than others. According to
2008 Alabama Traffic
Facts, a report published by the University of Alabama Center for Advanced Public
Safety, the primary causes of crashes were listed as failure to yield
right of way (14.5%), driver not in control of vehicle (13.9%), tailgating
(11.1%) and driver misjudged the stopping distance (10.5%).

Proving Fault for a Car Accident
The key to recovering monetary damages for car accident injuries is being able to
prove that the collision was the result of the other driver's negligence. This can sometimes be relatively straightforward, such as in the case of a
drunk driving accident where the drunk driver is clearly at fault. Other times it may be more
challenging to prove that the driver was responsible, but we know where
to look for evidence to support your claim.
For example, if the police accident report or even the other driver's
cell phone records demonstrate that the person was texting while driving,
this may be used as evidence that the driver is at fault. Another possible
source of compensation is to file a
product liability lawsuit, such as if your accident was caused by a sudden tire blowout or other defects.
We leave no stone unturned when developing a case, and we work diligently to help our clients receive the maximum compensation possible.
