Establishing Liability In An Alabama Car Accident

When a car accident occurs in Alabama, determining liability for compensating damages can be a complex process. An experienced Alabama auto accident lawyer can help identify the cause of the crash and determine who is at fault. Liability can be assigned to one individual or multiple parties, depending on the circumstances.

For example, if an individual rear-ends you while speeding or driving drowsy, your claim would be against that individual and their insurance company. However, not all accidents are that simple. Car accidents can also be caused by factors such as distracted driving, driving under the influence, or poor road conditions.

In cases where a worker driving a business vehicle is involved, your claim may be against the driver’s employer as well as the person who caused the crash. Trust our experienced Alabama automobile accident attorneys to help you navigate the legal process and recover the compensation you deserve.
