Causes of Alabama Highway Accidents

Many highway accidents are caused by the negligent actions of drivers. Determining liability is an essential element of successfully handling any Alabama highway accident claim. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one of the following factors causes the majority of highway accidents:

  • Defective road design
  • Driver distraction
  • Talking on phone
  • Adjusting radio
  • Construction zones
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Flying debris
  • Lack of roadway maintenance
  • Lack of vehicle maintenance
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Weather conditions

What to do After A Huntsville Highway Accident

  • Immediately file an accident report with the police, sheriff or highway patrol, if the agency has not done so at the scene.
  • Write down the name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number and driver’s license number of any and all persons involved in the accident. Record names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses.
  • Obtain photographs of the accident scene, all vehicles involved (before repairing) and any visible injuries to the parties involved, such as cuts, bruises, and scars.
  • Do not discuss the accident or your injuries with anyone, with the exception of your doctor and your attorney.
  • Do not consent to a recorded statement or sign any document without first reviewing it with your attorney. Innocent statements made by you attempting to assist an insurance adjuster can easily be misinterpreted and used to deny or minimize your recovery.
  • Immediately seek medical attention and tell your doctor the nature and extent of your pain and injury, and how the injury occurred.
  • Track Your Expenses.
    A strong claim clearly outlines the financial impact of your accident. Keep records of your:

    • time away from work,
    • mileage driven to doctors’ appointments,
    • rental car expenses,
    • medical bills,
    • and any other expenses your accident has caused.
