Car Accidents Occur EVERYDAY

In 2016, a person was injured in a traffic crash every 11 minutes and 2 seconds in Alabama (2016 Alabama Crash Facts). In their lifetime, typical drivers in Alabama have a greater than one-in-three chance of being in a crash involving injury or death (Strategic Highway Safety Plan).

Many people drive safely, obeys laws and still end up in an accident. Three common car accident claims for not-at-fault accidents are:

  • Negligence

Negligence is the most common type of car accident claim. This occurs when you can prove that the defendant failed to meet a reasonable standard of care and this negligence is what caused the accident. Common examples are: intoxicated drivers, distracted drivers and bus/truck drivers not performing safe practices.

  • Product Defects 

This can be proven if you or the other driver’s vehicle had a defect that contributed or caused the accident. Common defective parts that cause accidents are: airbags, brakes, accelerators and seat belts.

  • Road Design

In some instances, faulty road design, maintenance or construction can lead to accidents. Common examples of this are: improper signage, barriers and guardrails, unsafe embankments and dangerous surfaces.
