If you have been hurt in a car accident through no fault of your own, I can help you. I have been handling personal injury matters for the past 30 years. I can help you through the claims process and pursue compensation for your loss. As a car accident attorney, I can advise about how to best move forward with your claims.
You May be Entitled to the Following Relief:
- Reimbursement of Medical Expenses
- Compensation for Pain and Suffering, Mental Anguish and Emotional Distress
- Lost Wages
- Property Damage
- Loss of consortium and companionship
- Funeral or burial expenses
Grounds for Liability
Many car accidents in Alabama are the result of distracted driving, reckless driving, drunk driving, speeding, or other forms of carelessness. If you have been injured due to another driver's negligence, you have a right to be fully compensated for your injuries. If I handle your case, I will aggressively pursue the maximum available compensation for your injuries, including compensation for any past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
Types of Injury
I have handled many personal injury cases over the years with injuries ranging between soft tissue damage, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, internal injuries, and paralysis.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
In many circumstances, it may be possible to maximize your recovery by stacking your own uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage. You should never disclaim such coverage when you shop for car insurance, and it is often possible to stack your coverage from multiple vehicles to further increase your recovery.
What You Should Do After a Car Accident
- Call 911 immediately
- If possible, move to a safe location
- Take pictures and videos of the accident scene
- Write down what happened leading up to the accident
- Provide accurate information to the police and obtain a copy of the police report
- Seek medical attention as soon as possible following the accident
- Notify your insurance carrier of the accident
What You Should NOT Do After a Car Accident
Do not sign anything until you have spoken to me or obtained other legal advice.
How Much Time Do I Have?
In Alabama, the statute of limitations for bringing a lawsuit to recover damages following a car accident is two (2) years. If you wait longer than this, your case will be forever barred. However, as it is important to gather evidence as soon as possible following a car accident, you should not delay in seeking medical treatment or legal advice.
