Alabama Accident Lawyer
Accidents come in all shapes and sizes, but they all tend to pose a risk of injuries. If your injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, an Alabama accident attorney can help you as you seek compensation.
An accident can happen at any time, and even minor accidents can leave you with major injuries and expenses that you’ll be dealing with for a long time. When your injuries weren’t even your fault, the lack of justice and fairness can feel especially painful.
Worse, navigating the law can be especially difficult. Being called careless for your part in your accident can leave you without compensation, so you may need a professional on your side to help you through this difficult time.
An Alabama accident lawyer at our firm will know how difficult your situation is, but we’ll also know how to fight back to get you what you’re owed.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Whether you’re in a car or on a motorcycle—and especially if you’re hit by an 18-wheeler—vehicle crashes are some of the most frightening and painful accidents you can experience. Not only are your injuries likely severe, but you may have trouble getting insurance coverage.
Alabama is a “fault” state for auto insurance, meaning that the person at fault for the accident will be responsible for paying for it. This doesn’t, however, mean that his or her insurance company will be willing to give you the full compensation you deserve.
When it comes to dealing with insurance claims, an accident lawyer in Alabama can help as the insurance companies fight to keep their profits. Our lawyers know what tactics insurers will use to give you less than what you deserve and can help you set things right.
When you’re in a business or lawfully on someone else’s property, the property owners have a duty to protect your safety and warn you of any dangers on the grounds. When they don’t, you may be left with painful injuries.
Slip-and-fall injuries are some of the most common injuries in premises liability cases, and they can leave you with head trauma and back injuries. If the property owners didn’t put a sign out or verbally warn you, they are likely liable for your damages.
This goes for other serious injuries, as well. If you suffer an electrical injury or an injury due to broken stairs, faulty elevators, or uneven flooring, you deserve compensation. An Alabama accident injury lawyer can help you recover every dollar you’re due.
When you purchase a product, you expect something that works as it’s intended to. When it doesn’t, it can be disappointing, but when product defects cause harm, the situation becomes dangerous.
If you have purchased an item with a defect and it has caused you harm, you deserve compensation to make up for your injuries. For example, suppose you bought a phone. After a few days’ use, it starts overheating—so much so that it causes burns that require medical care. The manufacturer is liable for these damages, especially if this is a known issue that could have been avoided.
Unfortunately, the manufacturers may fight back. They may claim they didn’t know there was an issue or that you were careless when using their product. When this happens, your accident attorney in Alabama can investigate past claims to prove why you deserve compensation.
Even at work, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. Work accidents are common, especially when working with heavy machinery and power tools. Unfortunately, a workers compensation claim may simply not be enough—you may need much more help getting back to work.
For example, your employer might have exposed you to illegal, hazardous materials, and a workers compensation claim will not provide enough compensation to cover your damages. In some cases, your employer may simply not offer workers comp. Certain exceptions may leave you unable to receive benefits.
In situations like this, an Alabama accident claim lawyer can step in to determine whether your on-the-job accident warrants a personal injury claim.
