Tireless Pursuit Of Your Goals

Alabama car accidents often result in multiple fatalities

When Alabama motorists take to the roadways, they do not typically expect to become involved in serious collisions resulting in multiple fatalities. Due to negligence or reckless behavior behind the wheel, however, tragic car accidents occur all too often. Loved ones left to grieve their irreplaceable losses are protected by law with the right to seek justice on behalf of deceased immediate family members whose deaths were caused by the negligence of other motorists.

One such tragedy happened at approximately 1:30 a.m. when a 22-year-old woman was recently traveling with her 21-year-old boyfriend and 3-year-old son. Apparently, her vehicle was heading in an eastbound direction of traffic at the time. Another vehicle reportedly came from a westbound direction in the same lane and crashed into the woman's sports utility vehicle head-on.

The driver of the alleged wrong-way car was a 22-year-old male. He suffered minor injuries in the crash. Sadly, the woman, her son and her boyfriend all died as a result of their injuries. The man who survived is now being charged with three counts of murder and is also accused of driving while intoxicated, as well as operating a motor vehicle on the wrong side of the road. 

Alabama car accidents sometimes result in litigation when immediate family members choose to exercise their rights in filing wrongful death claims in court. There is no adequate compensation for the loss of human life. However, in a successfully litigated claim, a monetary award can help offset the tremendous costs often incurred by families following such tragedies.
