Every victim of an accident has the absolute right to hold wrongdoers accountable for their pain and suffering. Every driver, passenger, consumer, patient, and Alabama resident has the right to expect businesses and individuals always to put safety and caution first. Injuries mean immediately stopping your daily activities so you can get medical treatment. Injuries can prevent you from receiving a paycheck. Traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and other injuries cause pain and constant agony. At Mezrano Law firm, our Florence personal injury lawyer has the experience and resources to help accident victims get justice. Call us today.
There were 1,550 accidents in Florence in 2017, and 318 people sustained injuries. We represent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, bicycle riders, and families in any vehicle accident claim, including:
It’s not complicated:
When drivers fail to follow these simple rules, they should be held liable for the deaths and injuries they cause. Manufacturers of defective parts, taverns that knowingly serve people who are intoxicated, and counties that ignore (or exacerbate) faulty road design and construction can also be held to account.
Nearly 5,000 large vehicles were involved in fatal truck accidents in 2017. Thousands of people nationwide are injured each year due to truck accidents. Victims have the right to hold the drivers and the truck companies that hire the drivers accountable for their wrongs. We represent victims in all types of truck accidents, including:
Motorcycle crashes are often more deadly than other crashes because a motorcycle doesn’t protect the rider. We work on behalf of riders who have been injured by other negligent drivers, as well as for passengers when motorcycle operators speed, fail to run correctly, or are careless in any way.
Traumatic brain injury cases are some of the most challenging cases we handle. They’re tough because even victims with a “mild” brain injury (mTBI) (or concussion) may never be entirely the same after an accident. Victims with a severe TBI may even die from their injuries. If they survive, they often need a lifetime of medical care.
A TBI occurs when the skull and brain move violently about the head. In a closed head injury, the brain sustains damage while the skull remains intact. An object penetrates the skull to damage the brain in an open head injury (also called a “penetrating injury”). In either scenario, the brain injury victim is at risk of life-long repercussions, affecting:
A severe personal injury can lead to mounting medical bills. If you cannot work, it can be hard to ensure that your family stays safe and sound while you recover. At Mezrano Law, we help clients who have been critically injured file claims for:
Making electronic products, cars, other vehicles, medications, toys, and anything a consumer buys must put safety before profit. In Florence courts, the makers of defective products can be held strictly liable if a product they make:
Unlike most negligence cases, there is no need to prove fault in a product liability case. The main work in a product defect conduct is to work with product safety experts who can verify a product is defective. We then work with these experts and medical experts to prove that the defect caused a fatality, a traumatic brain injury, broken bones, or any type of injury.
There is no way to say how much a case is worth during an initial consultation because the full extent of your injuries (and your expenses) might not be known right away. Once we prove liability, however, we can ask for compensation for:
This includes the cost of past and future surgeries, hospital stays, and doctor visits. It also includes the cost of long-term physical, occupational, and emotional therapy. The liable party should also pay for your medical devices and medications.
Victims should be compensated for lost wages or income until they return to work.
Victims often suffer a great deal of physical and emotional pain. Non-economic damages like these are more subjective (because there is no exact price for mental trauma or chronic pain).
Your award should cover any property damage you sustain. That can include the cost of a rental car, vehicle repairs, or any other property damage due to the incident.
Punitive damages are a way to punish a wrongdoer for his or her negligence. The goal is to ensure that the acts which led to your injury are never committed again. If you have lost a loved one, Alabama law says the claim automatically becomes a wrongful death claim, and you are entitled only to punitive damages.
At Mezrano Law Firm, we do more than represent you in court or negotiate for a better settlement. We ensure that your case covers the full scope of how your life has been affected. That means we will work with your employers, family, financial professionals, and accident reconstructionists to document your economic loss and show just how painful your injuries are.
We thoroughly prepare each aspect of your case to prove the accident was caused by someone else. When necessary, we work with investigators, engineers, and safety professionals to show negligence or wrongs occurred. Our Florence injury lawyers and staff work with your doctors to fully understand the care you will need. We have a strong track record of success negotiating settlements and trying cases before juries, securing millions of dollars for our clients.
