Motor vehicle collisions can have devastating effects
Alabama drivers must share the road with all other motorists. It is the driver’s own responsibility to know the rules of the road, abide by them and consider the safety of passengers and other drivers. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision of any kind, the law firm of Mann & Potter, PC of Birmingham may be able to help.
Vehicles do not have to be driving very quickly to injure pedestrians, passengers or other motorists. Studies show that a collision at under five miles per hour can cause neck injuries. Unfortunately, most collisions occur at much higher speeds and produce serious injuries. These accidents are frequently caused by other drivers’ negligence and in some cases by faulty automobile products.
Whatever the cause of your auto accident, the Birmingham personal injury lawyers of Mann & Potter, PC can fight for your rights to compensation.
Accidents involving commercial trucks and 18-wheeler big rigs are nearly always catastrophic and complex. The imposing size and weight of tractor-trailers creates a potential hazard for passenger cars, and the long, difficult hours that truck drivers work can have dangerous effects. Contributing factors of trucking accidents include:
Commercial trucking companies do not always adhere to state and federal guidelines for operating big rigs. When this happens, the trucking company becomes liable for the accident. It takes experience, skill and the courage to fight these companies and their teams of lawyers in court to get accident victims the compensation they need. Mann & Potter, PC is prepared to stand up for you.
Drunk driving accidents
Of the 848 fatal traffic accidents in Alabama in 2009, 280 of them were caused by intoxicated drivers, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study. These accidents are wholly preventable and the reckless drivers must be held responsible for the suffering they caused. If you or a family member were injured in a collision where the other driver was under the influence of alcohol, contact Mann & Potter, PC for strong legal advocates.
