Last month, we provided a glimpse into how investigations into some fatal motor vehicle crashes can present significant challenges. It is not only family members who have lost loved ones that face these difficulties. At times, investigating agencies with competing interests can face hurdles. What results is that an already slow process for pursuing compensation for personal injury and damages takes even longer.
Anyone experienced in dealing with Alabama motor vehicle accidents appreciates that while a deadly collision happens in an instant, it takes weeks, months, sometimes even years, to resolve a case. Managing life after the crash and the complicated legal proceedings related to protecting victim rights and holding liable parties accountable is easier with a skilled attorney at your side.
All motoring accidents are not created equal. An accident between two cars can allow occupants to walk away almost unscathed. The same usually isn't true for collisions involving commercial trucks. Serious or fatal injury is much more likely for occupants of the smaller vehicle.
How common are deaths out on Alabama’s roads? Sadly, statistics point to such tragedies being more common here than in most other states.
