Car accidents often lead to litigation in Alabama

Many Alabama residents know what it's like to get an unexpected phone call telling of a loved one's untimely death. Car accidents are often to blame for such tragedies and when investigators dig deeper into events that may have led to a particular collision, driver negligence is often found to have been a causal factor. Just recently, three people ranging in ages from 28 to 42 were traveling together when the unthinkable occurred.

It was a late afternoon on a recent Wednesday when the three were making their way along U.S. 72. There also happened to be a tractor-trailer on the same highway. Although all the details of the situation have not yet been determined, it is known that at some point the car apparently drove straight into the back of the massive truck.

The truck driver survived the incident without injury. Sadly, however, none of the occupants in the car survived. The 28-year-old was reportedly the one behind the wheel of the car when the collision took place.

An Alabama law enforcement spokesperson said authorities believe alcohol was a causal factor in the crash, and more information will likely be revealed as the official investigation continues. When fatal car accidents are caused by drunk drivers or other motorist negligence, immediate family members of deceased victims may seek restitution for their losses in court. Clearly, there is no adequate recompense to replace the loss of human life; however, a successfully litigated civil claim often provides much needed monetary support as grieving families face unforeseen expenses related to their loved ones' deaths.
