As the second largest city in Alabama, the citizens of Huntsville will certainly experience their share of wrongful death incidents, just like any other city. Behind only the City of Birmingham as far as population, Huntsville's larger population can make it more susceptible to citizens and visitors being injured or killed by the negligence of another. Currently, Huntsville boasts a population of some 200,000 plus people and is the county seat and largest city in Madison County. Of note regarding the City of Huntsville: NASA's Marshall Space and Flight Center is located in Huntsville. Additionally, the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command is located at nearby Redstone Arsenal. Huntsville's population boom over the last decade can be attributed to an influx of various industries, as well as contracting work with the U.S. Federal Government.
