Drunk Driving and Auto Accidents
In addition to negligent and aggressive drivers, alcohol is a factor in 38% of all deadly car crashes and 7% of all auto accidents. In 2008, there were 293 fatal accidents in Alabama where at least one driver had a BAC of 0.08% or above. Nationally, 13,478 people were killed in accidents where at least one driver had a BAC of 0.8% or above.
DUIs can apply to those under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication, illicit drugs, and even over-the counter medicine. Individuals who were injured in alcohol-related crashes should speak with a car accident lawyer about recovering compensation for their injuries.
Other types of traffic collisions involved in auto accident cases include rollover accidents, head-on collisions, side impact collisions, rear-end collisions, high-speed collisions, and lane changing accidents. Some causes for these types of car crashes include the following:
- Driving too slow
- Reckless driving
- Drugs and/or alcohol
- Failure to obey traffic signs
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Failure to utilize turn signals
- Aggressive driving
The driver, however, may not be at fault for every car accident. Automobile defects, incorrect highway signs, construction, faulty highway or road design, inadequate lighting, or out-of-order traffic lights
may be to blame. The government or automobile company can sometimes be at fault for these accidents and immediately contacting an auto accident attorney can help secure the necessary evidence to enable eventual reimbursement to you for your losses.
Often, permanent and catastrophic injuries can result from motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, defective pharmaceutical products, or even medical negligence during childbirth. Our lawyers have extensive experience with the proof of severe injury claims resulting from a wide variety of causes.
Not only do we work closely with your medical treatment team to monitor your current condition and prognosis, we also work with outstanding consulting and forensic physicians, economists, rehabilitation experts, and life care plan professionals so that all of your losses and future requirements are properly documented and clearly presented. We leave nothing to chance in working toward the greatest amount of compensation possible for your injuries.
