Jasper, Alabama Automobile Accident Attorney
Jasper, located in Northwest Alabama, considers itself a retail hub as well as a center for growing industrial development. The 26.9-square-mile city boasts some 14,000 residents and is the seat of Walker County. The last census recorded the household median income at about $42,000, and the median income for a family at $54,000.
Once ranked among the world’s leading producers of coal, Jasper is located in the middle of the Warrior Coal Fields—the second largest coal field in the nation. The city sits conveniently on the Bankhead Highway and the newly-formed Memphis to Atlanta thoroughfare, Highway 22. Residents and visitors enjoy a close proximity to Smith Lake, Bankhead National Forest and the Warrior River.
Jasper was settled in 1815 but not incorporated until 1887. Once home to the Alabama Central Railroad, which served to transport lumber and coal during the years of the steam engine, Jasper was named in honor of Revolutionary War hero Sgt. William Jasper. During the Civil War, Union troops heading to Selma burned the courthouse and several other buildings.Jasper Automobile Accident Statistics

Numbers such as these prove that those who live in and travel through the Jasper area, as well as anywhere in Alabama, are subject to serious car accidents.
