  • Head-on collisions are far rarer, but often deadly. When two vehicles collide head-on, or when one vehicle crashes into t stationary object serious injuries can happen.
  • Road defects such as potholes, depressions in the roadway, inadequate lighting or missing signage can cause an accident.

Those large, commercial trucks that carry the goods you have purchased throughout Alabama and the rest of the United States can also pose a safety hazard to the regular, passenger vehicles who must share the highways with these massive vehicles. A truck accident can cause catastrophic injuries for those who survive. Our Alabama truck accident lawyers will do everything possible to obtain fair compensation for you.

Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle riders want to enjoy their freedom, but they are also completely vulnerable to injury from the elements, from the roadway and from the carelessness of the drivers of other motor vehicles. To add additional insult, motorcycle riders are often portrayed as being reckless and somehow responsible for the accident even when they were not at fault. Let our Alabama motorcycle accident lawyers fight for you.

Product liability

The companies that manufacture all the products you use in all aspects of your life owe a duty to you, the consumer, to create products that are safe and work as promised. When products are defective, and that defect causes a serious injury, you may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer, and other businesses in the chain of commerce down to the retailer who sold you the product. Some common product liability claims include those for:

Mass torts

A mass tort is a group of distinct, individual plaintiffs in smaller numbers than for a class action but with the same or similar complaints against the same manufacturer of a defective product such as a defective drug or medical device. If you were injured because of defective mesh, or sustained hearing loss from 3M’s faulty earplugs, let us help you.

Premises liability

Slip and fall injuries, negligent security, swimming pool accidents, animal attacks and other mishaps that result in injury because of a property owner’s negligence may be grounds for legal action. We can protect your right to recover compensation when a property owner fails his or her duty of care to the public.

Medical malpractice

When a physician’s or any other medical professional’s preventable medical mistake causes you a serious injury, you may be interested in pursuing justice in the form of compensation for your injuries. Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers fight aggressively for you.

Workers’ compensation

Social Security Disability

Alabama is second in the nation for Disability benefits; Given that so few Social Security Disability claims are approved on the initial application, having the guidance and support of a skilled Alabama SSD attorney can help greatly improve your chance of getting approved.

Nursing home abuse & neglect

It is a shameful fact that sometimes the people we trust to care for our elders and other vulnerable adults will abuse and neglect them instead. If you have a loved one who has suffered at the hands of nursing home staff, we are here to pursue justice on your loved one’s behalf.

Sexual abuse/assault

If you have survived sexual abuse or assault, in addition to the criminal charges against the perpetrator, you may also pursue a civil action. You may be able to hold the property owner of a resort, casino, hotel, apartment complex, or other responsible party for their negligence in exercising reasonable care to protect the safety of those who use their property.

What types of damages might be available with a successful injury claim?

The legal term for the financial compensation you may recover in a successful personal injury claim is, “damages.” Damages come in two categories: economic and non-economic. Economic damages cover financial losses because of the injury, and they might include:

  • Medical expenses for past current and future medical care related to the accident injury
  • Diminished earning capacity due to disability or other future loss of earnings
  • Other financial losses or property damage

Non-economic or general damages might include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium (for the spouse of the injured person)

Punitive damages are only available when the plaintiff can show that the defendant’s actions were malicious, done with ill intent, or with “deliberate or conscious malice.” In Alabama, there is a cap on punitive damages of three times the compensatory damages or $1,500,000. AL Code § 6-11-21 (2017)
