Car accidents often leave entire communities grief stricken

When a serious motor vehicle collision occurs in Alabama, it often affects far more than those directly involved in the crash. Car accidents resulting in injury or death to teenagers, for instance, tend to have ripple effects, sending waves of grief throughout entire communities. In some situations, parents whose children have died learn the deaths may have been prevented were it not for other motorists' negligence.

When a person of minor age is killed in a crash that was caused by a drunk driver, someone who was reckless behind the wheel or otherwise negligent, a parent or legal guardian may seek justice on behalf of the decedent by filing a wrongful death claim in a civil court. Although the grieving process may unfold for months, even years, seeking legal accountability against a negligent driver is often helpful. Successful claims may provide compensation that can be used to offset costs associated with an accident, such as medical bills for care rendered before death or funeral expenses.

A recent incident occurred in Alabama that took the life of a former high school athlete. She had played both volleyball and softball at a local school. Before the accident occurred, she had been attending another high school, but she was expected to return to her earlier alma mater next semester.

Car accidents are more frequent in Alabama and all other states between Thanksgiving weekend and the New Year holiday. Any person injured in an accident caused by another motorist may seek recovery for their losses by filing a personal injury claim. Parents who have questions regarding acting on behalf of a child may address their concerns through consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney.
