Motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence in Mobile and Pensacola and across Mobile and Escambia counties. Many crashes are completely avoidable, caused by drunk drivers or distracted drivers. Whatever the cause, car accidents are a major safety and economic issue for the Mobile and Pensacola communities.
The Mobile Police Department offers information on accidents, and also provides information on filing a police report and on obtaining a police report. The Pensacola Police Department also offers valuable resources if the accident occured in that region.
The Alabama Department of Motor Vehicles provides information on traffic and safety laws.
These departments are a good resource to get information after a car crash.
In an injury accident, it is crucial to get appropriate medical treatment, regardless of the financial cost.
The major hospitals in the area include:
As soon as possible, an injured person should contact their insurance company to find out if medical treatment is covered under their insurance policy.
When an injury is serious or a death occurs, the next step is to find an experienced Mobile car accident attorney to start the financial recovery process by launching an insurance claim. Major injury or wrongful death claims are complicated and difficult to manage. Having a great personal injury lawyer on board is a great relief to injured people, or to the family left behind when an accident proves fatal.
