Personal Injury Attorneys
Whatever type of personal injury case you have, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney. A good attorney can often obtain a favorable, early settlement. 90% of personal injury cases settle out of court. This doesn’t mean that 90% of cases turn out the best possible way for injured people. You want your settlement to be one of the cases where you feel confident that you got the best possible outcome.
If your case cannot settle – if the other side is not willing to pay what you deserve – you must go to trial, or at least prepare for and have ready the threat of trial. In that case, you need a skilled trial lawyer who will diligently prepare your case for trial by taking depositions, gathering evidence, scrutinizing the other side’s position in every way possible. You need a personal injury attorney who will use the evidence gathered in court to get the greatest possible personal injury money award from a judge or jury.

Personal Injury Awards & Damages
The key to success in a personal injury case is preparation. We start most cases by interviewing witnesses, gathering medical records, obtaining evidence from various sources, conducting background checks on potential defendants, and researching Alabama law that applies to your case.
You may have numerous damages that result from your personal injury case. The accident itself is just the beginning of the issues that follow.
It can take months or years for a personal injury victim and their families to put their lives back together. During this time, other damages may need to be included in your demand for compensation:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality and enjoyment of life
- Loss of future wages (ability to work)
- Medical expenses, past and future
- Loss of consortium (spousal claims)
- Mental anguish
- Emotional suffering
- Residual injuries
- Nerve damage
An accident injury lawyer from our firm can construct a fully detailed account of all past, current and projected expenses and losses. We work with experts to calculate potential costs of future car, expenses and lost wages.
The Alabama Code Section on personal injury cases can be found here, in Alabama Injury Laws.
If you have a personal injury case in Alabama, you want an experienced attorney who is not afraid to take on the powerful – whether big insurance companies or large law firms. You want a zealous advocate for your rights.
