Car Accident Factors
Help from an Alabama Car Accident Lawyer
There are a number of different factors that can cause
car accidents. Sometimes the accident is caused by the negligence of the driver, sometimes
it is caused by the vehicle or vehicle part manufacturer and other times
it is caused by another party, such as a government entity. Negligent
trucking companies can also be responsible for auto accidents, such as
when they fail to follow safety protocols.
If you have been injured in a car accident, it is important that you are
able to properly identify who and what caused the accident so that you
can hold the appropriate party liable for damages. In addition to identifying
the cause of the accident, you will also need to be able to
prove the cause so that you can receive the full compensation you deserve. At
Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC, we have a highly
skilled team of Alabama personal injury attorneys who can help you in
completing both of these steps.

Proving Your Case & Securing Compensation
By turning to a trained legal professional, you can ensure that all the

accident. There might be witness statements, video footage, truck driver
logs, driving records or other public records that could serve as important
evidence in your case.

companies will often try to twists the facts around in order to hide or
refute the true cause of the accident. At our law firm, we do not stand
for that. We work aggressively to prove the true facts behind your accident
