Personal injury: School bus crash injures students

A tragic accident involving a school bus left one person dead and nearly a dozen others injured. An Alabama high school football team was on its way home from an away game when the bus they were traveling in hit another vehicle. These types of accidents often cause much more than physical harm, and surviving victims tend to deal with long-lasting emotional trauma, which can sometimes be addressed through the successful actions of a personal injury claim.

Personal injury claims when the negligent party died

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. 

Hurt in a bicycle accident? A personal injury claim could help

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. 

Was your personal injury caused by a texting driver?

The idea that distracted driving is dangerous is not new. Most Alabama drivers understand just how much a risk they are taking when they pick up a cell phone while they are behind the wheel, but a large portion of people continue to do so anyway. When these drivers cause serious accidents, their victims may be able to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. 

Seeking damages after a motor vehicle accident

You begin your morning commute as you always do: a coffee in hand and talk radio blaring from your speakers. However, all of a sudden, your commute takes a turn for the worst when someone strikes your car due to being negligent behind the wheel. For instance, maybe the other driver was attempting to text and drive simultaneously, which is a far too common occurrence these days.

Does personal injury law cover motorcycle accidents?

Whether for the sensation of the air rushing past them or the feeling of freedom on an open road, for some people in Alabama there is nothing better than riding a motorcycle on a perfect summer day. There may not be anything more dangerous, either. Although most motorcyclists are incredibly focused on safety, drivers of larger motor vehicles rarely have the same focus, putting you at risk for a serious injury, which is eligible for compensation under personal injury law.

Personal injury law allows families to seek compensation

No matter how safely most Alabama residents drive, it is impossible to avoid encountering those who act recklessly behind the wheel. Unfortunately, many of these negligent drivers fail to take into account the conditions of the roads on which they travel, making some areas more dangerous than others. Although there is nothing that can undo the devastation of a fatal accident, personal injury law allows for compensation to victims and surviving family members.

Alabama tractor trailer crash leaves couple with fatal injuries

Serious accidents involving tractor trailers are always frightening. Unfortunately, they also tend to have outcomes that lead to families losing loved ones. When a truck driver is considered at fault for such a crash, surviving loved ones may have reason to take legal action against the driver and the trucking company for which he or she works.

Alabama car crash results in woman's death

When drivers do not take care to remain safe and aware behind the wheel, they could easily cause issues on roadways. In many cases, reckless or negligent drivers cause serious car accidents that leave innocent travelers with serious or fatal injuries. When a crash does prove deadly, the victim's family may be looking for legal information in the aftermath.
