Personal Injury 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 serious injuries or experienced the wrongful death of 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 the medical records related to every type of injury resulting from every kind of accident and wrongful death case imaginable, and we are ready to put our experience and complex litigation skills to work for you in an effort to obtain compensation.

When people fail to act safely 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 is not afraid of taking on negligent individuals, businesses, government entities, or deep-pocketed insurance companies, and we will not rest until justice is served through the legal system with maximum compensation.

Hold The Negligent Party Accountable

After an injury accident due to someone else's negligence, you have the right to expect that the responsible party’s insurance will compensate you for the personal injuries or harm you’ve suffered (this includes medical malpractice cases), as well as for any damage to personal property that was caused by a reckless or negligent act.

Unfortunately, the insurance company is 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 of the legal process to deny or minimize your effort to secure compensation.

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 maximum compensation you are owed.

You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, pain management, and other expenses associated with an accident that was caused by a negligent party. 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 case evaluation with our team today to discuss your rights and legal options. Call us at (205) 324-1212 to speak with a Birmingham Personal Injury Attorney today.

Alabama Accident Statistics at a Glance

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) reported a total of 159,102 crashes in Alabama in 2019. The crashes resulted in 46,383 injuries and 930 fatalities in 851 fatal crashes.

A Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report found that Alabama had the highest per-capita pedestrian fatality rate in the country with a rate of 2.5 fatalities per 100,000 people in 2021. According to the GHSA report, there were 126 pedestrian fatalities in 2021, up from 114 in 2019 and 101 in 2020.

The same ALDOT report listed 10,486 truck accidents in Alabama in 2019, the highest annual number of accidents in the 10-year period going back to 2010. State routes accounted for 50 deaths or 36.5 percent of the fatalities involving truck accidents, but interstates had the highest number of crashes involving trucks with 2,886 accidents or 27.5 percent of crashes, followed by truck accidents on city roads with 2,854 crashes or 27.2 percent of crashes.

The CDC reported that traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) were a factor in 223,135 hospitalizations in 2019 and 64,362 deaths in 2020. According to a 2015 Report to Congress, TBI was a factor in an estimated 2.5 million emergency room visits, including 52,844 resulting deaths, and 283,630 who were hospitalized but survived. The report states that these numbers are likely an underestimation due to cases where the injured party did not seek medical attention or received outpatient care. These numbers also do not include TBI injuries sustained by soldiers and veterans treated at a federal facility.

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) 2020 Fact Sheet, the annual incidence of spinal cord injury is about 17,810 new spinal cord injury cases every year. An estimated 294,000 people in the United States are currently living with a spinal cord injury, but the actual figure may be as high as 368,000 persons. The NSCIC states that motor vehicle crashes (including motorcycle accidents) are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, responsible for 38.6 percent of cases. Falls were the next most common cause at 32.2 percent of cases. These often occur in workplace accidents.
