The truck that hit me failed to yield to my right-of-way and said that he was waved through the intersection by an 18 wheeler. My car was hit on the driver’s side door and spun around...

Accidents in Alabama

When the unthinkable happens and you are hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions, it is important to remember that you are not alone. The lawyers at Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP represent individuals in Birmingham and across Alabama who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones in catastrophic accidents.

For more than two decades, we’ve made it our mission to stand up for people just like you to help them get the justice they deserve and to make our community safer. We’ve seen every type of injury and wrongful death case imaginable, and we are ready to put our experience and skills to work for you.

When people fail to act in a safe manner or when insurance companies refuse to provide full and fair compensation to you after an accident, we’ll be there to help. Our team of aggressive trial attorneys are not afraid of taking on negligent individuals, businesses, government entities, or deep-pocketed insurance companies, and we will not rest until justice is served.

After an injury accident, you have the right to expect that the responsible party’s insurance will compensate you for the harm you’ve suffered and any property damage that was caused by a reckless or negligent act. Unfortunately, the insurance companies are often more concerned with their bottom-line and making their investors happy, not taking care of you. They will often do everything in their power to deny or minimize your injury claim.

That’s why it is so important to have an experienced injury attorney on your side. When you hire an experienced injury lawyer like those at Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP, you can focus on your health and your family, and let us work to get you the compensation you are owed.

You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for surgery, rehabilitation, lost wages, pain management, and other expenses associated with an accident that was not your fault. We are here to make sure that you get the full and fair compensation that you need to rebuild your life and move on from the accident. Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with our team today to discuss your rights and legal options.
