When splitting up marital property, couples tend to focus on the current value of assets. While it is certainly important to understand how much something is worth while trying to figure out an appropriate equitable distribution, Alabama couples need to take other factors into consideration. The potential tax implications of certain family law decisions could leave one person with significantly less than they expected.
Walking is often billed as a healthy, green alternative to driving. While it is great exercise and great for the planet, pedestrians are also at a serious disadvantage on Alabama's roadways. Across the United States, pedestrian death rates are at an all-time high, and they do not seem to be going down any time soon.
The driver who allegedly caused a fatal accident on Alabama Highway 67 also died in the tragic collision. One other person was killed in the wreck and another suffered serious injuries. Although there is some confusion about the subject, victims of devastating car wrecks can still pursue compensation through personal injury claims even if the negligent driver was also killed in the accident.
Whether out of necessity or by choice, biking is a healthy and affordable mode of transportation. Unfortunately, if you are an avid cyclist in Alabama, then you know that there are also some downsides. Perhaps the biggest drawback is that many drivers in passenger vehicles are often unwilling to share the road safely with pedestrians and bicyclists. If you were hit by a negligent driver and are struggling with your recovery, a personal injury claim could be right for you.
