Alabama Drunk Driving Accidents
Crashes Caused by Drunk Drivers
Drinking and driving is a serious problem on the roads and highways of
Alabama, injuring or claiming the lives of innocent people every year.
According to statistics provided by Mothers' Against Drunk Driving
(MADD), one out of every three fatal
car accidents in our state are DUI related, with a total of 1,626 DUI fatalities over
the past five years. Some people can get away with driving drunk for years
without being caught, while others will cause a fatal accident the first
time. Nearly anyone will agree that driving after consuming alcohol is
dangerous, but many drivers continue to place everyone at risk by getting
behind the wheel drunk.
At Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC, we take pride in
holding drunk drivers accountable for their actions. Even if the driver
is convicted on charges of DUI, the criminal penalties will do nothing
to compensate you for your losses. With the help of a Dothan personal
injury attorney however, you may be able to recover monetary damages for
everything from your medical expenses and lost income to the pain and
suffering you have experienced. If your accident took place in South East
Alabama or anywhere throughout Tri-State Area, we urge you to contact
us now for a free consultation and to get started on your case.
Filing an Accident Claim in Alabama
Recovering compensation in a
personal injury or
wrongful death case depends on being able to demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence
that the other party is at fault for causing the accident. In the case
of a collision caused by a drunk driver, this should be a relatively simple
proposition. Don't assume, however, that the insurance company will
see it that way. With their own bottom-line at stake, they are likely
to do whatever they can to minimize or even deny your claim. Level the
playing field by hiring us to represent you. We are on your side and want
to help you hold the drunk driver responsible, whether you were injured
Dothan or anywhere else in Southeast Alabama.
