Can personal injury lawsuits address pedestrian accidents?

Walking is a great form of exercise and, for individuals without cars, it is even a necessity. But walking near cars is dangerous, especially when it comes time to cross a road. Pedestrians are at great risk for personal injury just being near the road. Sadly, the aftermath of a collision is usually tragic.

Truck drivers are often responsible for tractor-trailer accidents

It is pretty unsettling to drive by a tractor-trailer, especially on Alabama highways and interstates where speed limits are usually pretty high. But that pit you feel in your stomach is justified. Tractor-trailer accidents are serious, usually causing severe and traumatic injuries to passengers in smaller passenger vehicles.

2 common behaviors that contribute to car accidents

When a driver is unfairly injured in a wreck that was not his or her fault, getting help for those injuries is often the top priority. One way that those facing these circumstances canĀ get that help is by securing compensation through personal injury claims made against the drivers who caused the car accidents. However, a victim has to document how the other driver was at fault, and it is not enough to simply say he or she caused the collision.

Pedestrian fatalities rise across the country

The National Highway Safety Administration just released its report compiling data on fatal motor vehicle accidents since 2008. The news is not good.

Can certain songs cause car accidents?

It might even be difficult to find a driver who does not have the music on at least some of the time. Unfortunately, recent research shows that certain types of music could lead to car accidents.

Who can be held responsible for a drunk driving accident?

Most people in Alabama know that it is dangerous to drink and drive, but not everyone takes it as seriously as they should. This means that you could be at risk for serious injury even if you are a conscientious person who uses a designated driver or refrains from drinking while out. Injuries from a drunk driving accident can be, and quite often are, severe. Holding the responsible party liable for such an accident is important.

What Alabama families should know about premises liability

Maintaining a safe environment free from serious safety risks is an important responsibility for property owners. When it is not possible to address or fix a safety risk, property owners should provide adequate warnings or signs that caution visitors.

Wrongful death: Head-on collision leaves 2 dead
