How To Choose The Best Car Accident Lawyer

If you have questions about how to choose the best car accident lawyer, it is clear that you or someone close to you has been injured in a car accident. Selecting the best car accident lawyer is a big decision because he or she is going to be a major part of your life for months.

Each year, more than 36,000 people die in fatal car accidents throughout the United States. The Association for Safe International Road Travel reports that more than two million suffer substantial harm in the aftermath of a car accident. About half of all car accident victims are 15 to 44 years old, but more than 1,500 younger people die in car accidents each year.

According to, Alabama drivers bear a significantly higher risk of death in a car accident. Drivers in Alabama are twice as likely to die in a car accident when compared to the average American driver. About 13.7 Alabamans per 100,000 population die in car accidents compared to the national rate of 7.0 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

Car Accidents

The number of annual deaths and injuries reflect the epidemic on U.S. roadways. When someone is injured in a car crash, the car crash turns their entire world upside down. When you or someone you love is injured in a car accident, you want to be compensated for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
