Fatal Head-on Crashes in Alabama

Millport, AL - One Killed in Head-on Crash with Truck on AL-96

There are many long two-lane roads and highways in Alabama that lack medians or other safety features. A driver runs the risk of colliding head-on with an oncoming vehicle if they break across the centerline into oncoming traffic. These are especially destructive kinds of crashes. In the United States in a recent year, head-on impacts accounted for over 10 percent of all traffic fatalities although they accounted for fewer than 2 percent of all reported crashes nationally. Every year, thousands of people lose their lives in head-on collisions. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that these crashes have a nearly 56 percent fatality rate. In order to pursue a claim for compensation if a loved one dies in an unexpected crash, you must work with an experienced attorney.
