Car accidents caused by drunk driving result in criminal charges

Alabama drivers have been educated about the dangers of drinking and driving, a process which likely began before they were even old enough to obtain a license. Being under the influence of drugs and alcohol behind the wheel is a leading cause of car accidents nationwide. When a vehicle is involved in an accident, drivers are required by law to remain on the scene until law enforcement arrives, but sometimes people trying to cover up a crime attempt to ignore this rule. 

Recently, an Alabama driver, reportedly under the influence, was involved in a serious accident. He was traveling the wrong way along a stretch of road and collided with an oncoming vehicle. The vehicle that was struck left the roadway, and its driver was ejected. 

The offending driver fled the scene. When help arrived, the victim received medical attention, but he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police turned to the community for help, and were able to apprehend the driver believed responsible at his residence, several miles from the crash scene. 

Car accidents that are caused by the negligence of another can devastate a victim and his or her family. Victims, or surviving families in the event of a victim's death, may seek full financial accountability from the party or parties deemed at fault. Medical bills, funeral expenses and legal matters can pile up quickly. In these cases, a knowledgeable attorney can work to pursue claims against all parties believed responsible through the civil court claims process.
