Car Accident Claims in Alabama and Georgia

There are hundreds of thousands of motor vehicle accidents in Alabama and Georgia each year. These accidents are often caused by distracted driving, drunk driving, texting and driving, and other forms of negligence. Despite the numerous safety features of modern automobiles, the victims involved in car accidents still face serious injuries and even death. This is especially true for victims that do not have the protection of a passenger vehicle, such as motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

Alabama, like all other states, has a set time frame in which you may file a personal injury claim. Alabamians are given up to two years from the date of their accident to bring forward a claim against any potential defendant. You may want to contact an attorney following your accident as they can help you navigate the intricacies of filing your claim. Not only can an attorney help investigate the circumstances of your injury but can also compile helpful documentation that can help in proving that negligence was the cause of your injury.

Car Accident Injuries

car with damage front endEvery year, the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) and other organizations track fatal car accidents throughout the United States. In 2018, there were 33,654 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States, and 36,560 people lost their lives. 876 of these fatal crashes occurred in Alabama and 1,407 happened in Georgia.

Sadly, even those who survive car accidents can be left with lifelong injuries.

The most common injuries after a car accident include:

  • Whiplash
  • Scrapes and cuts
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones (especially ribs)
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • PTSD and other psychological effects
  • And more

If you have been afflicted by any of the injuries above, contact our Dothan car accident lawyers for assistance.

What Causes Car Accidents?

As we mention at the top of the page, negligent driving behaviors cause car accidents. When people drink and drive, text and drive, and drive carelessly, people get hurt.

Other causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to yield
  • Aggressive driving
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Improper turns
  • Defective car parts
  • And more

Anytime you are in an accident that is someone else’s fault, you may be eligible for compensation. Both Alabama and Georgia are at-fault car accident states, which means the at-fault driver can be held liable for your injuries and other damages.

Understanding Damages

When you get in a car accident, the consequences are immediate and they stack up quickly, especially in severe crashes. The losses you suffer are referred to as damages and personal injury lawsuits aim to compensate you for damages.

Compensable damages include:

  • Vehicle damage and property loss
  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • The costs of rehabilitative care
  • Lose wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished or lost quality of life
  • And more

Although money cannot solve all of these problems, it can help keep you comfortable as you recover from your accident and injury. Sometimes, you may also get punitive or exemplary damages, which are designed to punish the wrongdoer and make an example of them to prevent future wrongdoings.

Capps, Gil & Parker, LLC has a track record of results, and we are dedicated to pursuing maximum compensation on your behalf.
