In a study published by the CDC, people living in Alabama were twice as
likely as the rest of the nation to die in car crashes. Some
car accidents can occur due to unfavorable weather conditions or poorly maintained roads
while others can happen due to driver negligence. If you were injured,
or if your loved one was killed in a car accident due to the negligence
of another, you can take legal action.
Common Reasons for Car Accidents:

Categories of Car Accidents
Single Vehicle Accidents – these types of car accidents can occur
for a number or reasons. A driver may have dozed off while driving, or
swerved out of the way of an animal or object in the road.
Multiple Car Accidents –When more than one car is involved there
are many factors that could have caused the accident. Poor visibility
caused by weather, inattention or reckless driving could cause an accident.
Head-On Collisions –victims of head-on collisions are lucky if they
survive. Head on collisions is some of the most dangerous collisions due
to the amount of damage they can inflict on both the drivers and their
vehicles. Head on collisions typically occur on narrow two lane highways
and are usually as a result of one driver attempting to pass another slower
moving driver without enough time between oncoming cars.
Rollovers –When a car rolls over, it is typically as a result of
speeding or taking a corner too hard. SUVs are typically the type of vehicle
that rolls over due to their elevation off the ground.
T-Bone Collisions—When a driver suffers injury from a T-Bone accident
it is usually due to one driver failing to yield to oncoming traffic when
turning left or right. These types of accidents can also be extremely
dangerous due to the oncoming traffic usually approaching at higher speeds.
Read-End Collisions- Rear end collisions typically occur due to one driver
following too close behind another. Many rear end collisions occur at
intersections and in parking lots.
