Alabama Personal Injury Lawyers
The term personal injury can include many different areas of law, including: auto accidents, trucking accidents, slip and fall incidents, nursing home negligence and elder abuse, bad faith insurance, catastrophic injuries, child injuries, wrongful death, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, accidents at home, premises liability, dog bite cases, and other injuries where someone is harmed by the negligence, breach of duty, or carelessness of another person or entity. These types of claims can involve different laws that need to be reviewed by our Alabama personal injury lawyers.
To establish a personal injury claim, the Plaintiff must show that the Defendant acted in a negligent way that caused the injuries. Specifically, that the Defendant breached a duty that they had, and the Plaintiff was injured as a proximate cause of this breach. An example of this is a car accident where a driver of a vehicle has to obey all motor vehicle laws and drive in a reasonable manner. If you have been injured in an accident, then call our Alabama personal injury lawyers today for a free consultation in one of our offices in Montgomery, Anniston, Huntsville, or Birmingham.
Once an injury occurs, our Alabama personal injury lawyers will help you seek the compensation that you have a right to, which can take the form of any of the following: lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, property expenses, and emotional distress. Injured persons benefit greatly from having a lawyer represent them in a personal injury case. Insurance companies have trained employees with a goal of paying as little as possible or nothing at all on your claim. Once you obtain representation, the insurance company will have to stop dealing with you and will start negotiating and communicating with your personal injury attorney.
Usually, these insurance companies have a large amount of in-house lawyers who specialize in personal injury cases. Some of these companies can be very large and have lots of money to use in avoiding claims or to intimidate you. Here is some information about the types of personal injury cases that our Alabama personal injury lawyers handle in Montgomery, Anniston, Gadsden, Cullman, Decatur, Hoover, Tuscaloosa, Prattville, Selma, Huntsville, Birmingham, and throughout the State of Alabama:
Bad Faith Insurance Attorneys
Many times, someone is injured or suffers serious property damage as a result of another’s negligence or by a natural disaster and the insurance company denies the claim, even though it is valid. This can be due to many reasons, but if the individual is denied and obtains an attorney, then the lawyer can sometimes get them to offer a settlement on the claim that was initially denied. The insurance companies might deny some potentially valid claims and if many of them don’t do anything then they won’t get paid. This can happen in cases of natural disasters, where there are a great many homeowner’s insurance claims all at once, and the insurance company might deny some for whatever internal reasons, even though they are valid under the policy. If this happens to you, then call our bad faith insurance attorney today and let us get your claim handled.
Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
Whether someone is injured in a vehicle accident, a defective product, or through medical malpractice it can often result in such catastrophic injuries as spinal injuries, burn injuries, and brain injuries. When it comes to these types of injuries, they can sometimes require an experienced injury attorney to litigate the claim successfully. This is because when there are catastrophic injuries such as these, the insurance companies handle the claims much differently and are less inclined to settle early on in the process. These types of injuries can result in very large damages due to the lifetime of care necessary for the victim and their families. If you have suffered catastrophic injuries due to the neglect or actions of another, then you should contact an Alabama catastrophic injury attorney today.
Child Injury Lawyers
Thousands of children every year are injured or killed as a result of accidents or intentional acts by adults. Such things as injuries on a playground or in a swimming pool tend to happen due to negligent supervision or security. Injuries can also occur at school, in the car, on the bus, playing with toys, food poisoning, and physical abuse. If your child has suffered serious injuries due to the neglect or actions of another, then you should contact an Alabama child injury attorney today.
Wrongful Death Lawyers
Losing a loved one can be a devastating and extremely painful experience. If you have lost a family member due to the negligence or malpractice of another then you should act fast to bring or preserve a claim. You should know that, under Alabama law, wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the death of the claimant. This means that you generally have two years, from the death of your family member, to file your wrongful death claim against the party
