UAB Spain Rehabilitation Center shares benefit of Farris, Riley & Pitt and Lewis & Feldman’s Smart Kit Initiative

Posted on Wednesday, July 15th, 2020 at 10:49 am    

In November of 2019, our firm partnered with Injury Board and Lewis & Feldman to donate smart kits to UAB Spain Rehabilitation Center patients. Our goal was to create kits for patients who suffered catastrophic injuries to help them return to as normal a life as possible through the use of voice or remote activated technology. Today, UAB Spain Rehabilitation Center shared with us how the smart kits are benefiting their patients:

Meet Ceairra: She suffered a C6 complete spinal cord injury due to a car accident. After hard work and with the help of the amazing staff at UAB Spain Rehabilitation Center, she made great progress and is now able to drive a power chair, feed herself, groom herself, dress her upper body and use technology. Ceairra’s mom will be her primary caregiver, but she is eager to be as independent as possible.

Jenny Agricola with UAB Spain Rehabilitation Center shared her experience when selecting Ceairra and other patients for one of the smart kits: “I knew she would truly benefit from using the items in the smart kits. Her and her mom were thrilled since they had been looking at purchasing several of these items when funds were available.  I was able to do a demo with them both on setting up and using the devices, and with the great videos you created, I know they will be able to get everything set up at home. Thank you for this wonderful donation; they are truly life changing for so many patients.”

Ceairra has come such a long way during her rehab program. We are gratified to have been a part of her recovery process. The devices in her smart kit will help her with some of the things we take for granted in our day-to-day lives, such as turning on/off the lights or television, answering the phone, playing music or even finding out the day’s news or weather.

Birmingham’s 54-year-old Antonio Leon Ellison Struck by a Pickup Truck While Walking

Posted on Wednesday, July 15th, 2020 at 9:47 am    

On Friday, July 10th, at 10:03 p.m., 54-year-old Antonio Leon Ellison, of Birmingham, was struck by a pickup truck while walking in the 400 block of 3rd Avenue West. Ellison succumbed to his injuries minutes after the collision occurred. The driver of the pickup truck alerted the authorities and remained at the scene to help with Birmingham Police Department’s ongoing investigation.

 

 

 

What factors come into play when a pedestrian is involved?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Ken, my heart breaks for the friends and family of Antonio Ellison. I can’t imagine what they must be going through. I believe this may be the first incident we’ve covered that involves a pedestrian, which makes me wonder if you see a lot of these types of cases?

KEN RILEY: Tiffany, as with any accident containing injuries and especially deaths, I’d love to say they are rare occurrences, but most of the time, that’s simply not the case. However, we do see far less cases involving pedestrians than we do involving multiple vehicles. That being said, we do currently have a few cases in this category, one of which happened only a couple of months ago.

TIFFANY BITTNER: I agree with you, Ken. While I’m glad the numbers are lower than others, I wish we could eliminate them altogether. Since these types of cases are less common than others, what are some different factors one needs to look for when building a case like this?

KEN RILEY: Primarily, you must consider all the details of the case. Who is listed as the at-fault party on the accident report? Why are they listed rather than the other party? Were there any factors involved that could point to the injured party having contributed to the accident? In a case involving a pedestrian, those factors could look like anything from jaywalking or wearing dark clothing at night to walking down the wrong side of the street. These are all things to be considered when building a case like this, to determine whether or not both parties helped contribute to the accident.

TIFFANY BITTNER: How would one determine if the pedestrian somehow contributed to the accident, and how would that affect the case?

KEN RILEY: Well, the clothing the pedestrian was wearing at the time of the incident will be apparent, but as for jaywalking or being negligent of pedestrian traffic laws, if there is security footage in the area, that could be pulled and reviewed to see how exactly the accident occurred. One could also investigate to see if there were any witnesses, and they could be asked to make a statement. Regarding the affect, it really depends. We focus on the conduct of the driver of the offending vehicle and ask – Why did this happen? Why didn’t the driver see the pedestrian? What was the driver doing inside of the vehicle instead of paying attention? How can this harm be prevented in the future?

24-year-old Ryan Brown injured in a car wreck while driving a motorcycle

Posted on Friday, May 8th, 2020 at 3:40 pm    

On Sunday, May 3rd, Ryan Brown, 24, was injured in a car wreck while driving a motorcycle. He was taken to Tanner Medical Center East Alabama for treatment. The driver of the other vehicle has not been identified yet; however, she suffered no injuries in the accident. The accident happened on County Road 129, outside of Wedowee.

What are next steps while recovering from a motorcycle accident?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

   

TIFFANY BITTNER: Motorcycles are so dangerous, especially since we have seen an increase of distracted drivers on the roads. Ken, what does Mr. Brown need to do in order to cover the cost of his medical treatment?

KEN RILEY: I agree, I have helped so many clients with injuries from motorcycle accidents that I will probably never have the urge to drive one. Wrecks involving motorcycles are not usually the fault of the motorcyclist. Typically, a driver does not notice a motorcycle until it is too late, especially in a distracted driver situation. Obviously, there are not protective materials for a motorcycle like a car, so the injuries are usually more severe. If Mr. Brown is hurt badly, his personal injury case will take some time, so that he can fully recover before the insurance company compensates him. If he settles too quickly, he may not realize the severity or the longevity of his injuries, which are factors that an experienced personal injury attorney will consider for maximum recovery.

TIFFANY BITTNER: It makes sense that injuries would be more severe when in a motorcycle wreck. What types of injuries do you typically see?

KEN RILEY: We have seen everything from road rash and lacerations to broken bones and torn ligaments. We recently closed a case where a Lyft driver pulled out in front of our client, who was driving a motorcycle. Our client suffered many broken bones all over his body, the worst of which was a shattered shoulder blade. Tiffany, the silver lining about our state shutting down is that the amount of wrecks has decreased significantly. There are simply less distracted drivers on the road right now.

TIFFANY BITTNER: That is good news to hear. As more and more people in Alabama return to work, what one piece of advice would you give them to avoid distracted driving?

KEN RILEY: If I had to choose just one, it would be to put your cellphone in your glove compartment or in the back seat. Many things in your car can distract you, such as food, radio, and children, but your cellphone is the most dangerous by far. Taking your eye off the road for even 5 seconds to answer a text, make a phone call, or scroll on social media could result in a fatal car wreck. I truly think that one solution would make our roadways safer.

Anthony Smith killed in a single-vehicle crash on Hix Road near Sasser Road in Tallapoosa County

Posted on Wednesday, May 6th, 2020 at 4:32 pm    

On Tuesday, April 28th, Anthony L. Smith, 55, was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Hix Road near Sasser Road in Tallapoosa County. The crash occurred when the tractor trailer Smith was driving struck wires that were hanging over the roadway, causing him to strike a utility pole before his vehicle left the roadway and overturned. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene.

What happens when the city may be liable for an accident?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

   

TIFFANY BITTNER: Ken, it is with a heavy heart that we discuss another life lost on the roadways of Alabama this week. With this being a single-vehicle crash, what options do Mr. Smith’s family have to help them bear this burden in the midst of grief?

KEN RILEY: I agree, it is tragic to lose so many lives due to auto accidents, especially in such a short time frame. In this situation, Mr. Smith’s family should begin by considering the cause of the accident. Many times, in single-vehicle crashes, the driver is typically found to be at-fault. However, occasionally there are underlying circumstances that may have caused the crash. In this specific instance, the wires hanging over the roadway could have been a factor.

TIFFANY BITTNER: If the family believes the wires were indeed a causation factor in this accident, what options would they have then?

KEN RILEY: The family should hire an experienced attorney to investigate the matter further. The investigation could then determine whether the wires hanging in the roadway contributed to the accident. For example, the investigation could answer questions such as: Were the wires up to code? Had the wires been damaged due to the recent bad weather or a previous accident? Were the wires faulty or improperly installed? If the investigation determines that somehow the wires did contribute to the crash, there could potentially be liability for the accident.

TIFFANY BITTNER: If the investigation determines the wires somehow did contribute to the accident, what are some of the legal challenges you would be facing?

KEN RILEY: One of the major issues is preservation of evidence. When an event like this occurs, and there may be liability, evidence tends to disappear quickly. Therefore, it is very important to conduct a full investigation as early as possible. That is why it is so important to hire an experienced attorney early on, so they can take care of the time-sensitive legal matters without burdening the family further.

30-year-old Justin O’Neal Langham 23-year-old girlfriend Kiyaira Michaela Kincaid lost their lives in a car wreck

Posted on Wednesday, May 6th, 2020 at 4:25 pm    

30-year-old Justin O'Neal Langham 23-year-old girlfriend Kiyaira Michaela Kincaid lost their lives in a car wreckOn Thursday, April 28th, 30-year-old Justin O’Neal Langham and his 23-year-old girlfriend, Kiyaira Michaela Kincaid lost their lives in a car wreck when her 2008 Ford Focus left the road and struck a tree on the driver’s side. Alabama State Troopers said Kincaid was driving at an excessively high rate of speed on Alabama 184, also known as Second Street, across from Galaxy Flea Market, which is three miles east of Muscle Shoals. Colbert Sheriff Frank Williamson was at the scene of the accident and described the crash as one of the worst he’s seen in his career. He said, “It was apparent that it happened very quickly, and I’m thankful they couldn’t have known what even happened. The car didn’t even look like a car.”

What’s next for children who lost their father due to reckless driving?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Kirby Farris.

TIFFANY BITTNER: What a tragedy, Kirby – two young lives lost due to what appears to be reckless driving. Mr. Langham leaves behind three children. What would you say to his family when it comes to going after his girlfriend’s insurance company? I am sure it is a sensitive situation, but that is the reason auto insurance is required by Alabama State Law.

KIRBY FARRIS: The first thing that Mr. Langham’s family needs to understand is that they will likely not be going after Ms. Kincaid’s personal assets. They will be compensated by her insurance company. Very few personal injury attorneys will pursue someone’s personal assets – at least not any that I am aware of. A personal injury attorney’s focus is usually on battling the insurance companies. Insurance companies’ success is based on settling cases for the least amount possible – regardless of what the injured party is entitled to. It’s my job to make sure that our clients are compensated fairly and are able to return to as normal of a life as possible.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Since Mr. Langham was the passenger in a reckless driving accident, what rights does his family have when it comes to collecting from Ms. Kincaid’s insurance company, and do you foresee any complications in this particular situation?

KIRBY FARRIS: Guest/passenger cases are complicated as it is. In this situation, both parties are no longer living to explain what happened and the purpose of their car ride. This case will take an experienced personal injury attorney who is willing to put in the time to investigate this accident. I can foresee many complications, but nothing that would deter me from investigating the case. While Guest/Passenger situations can be difficult, we have been successful in triggering insurance coverage in other cases.

TIFFANY BITTNER: If the family does hire an attorney to work on the case, what happens if it gets too complicated and the attorney isn’t able to get family the compensation they deserve? I know you work on a contingency fee, meaning you don’t get paid unless you win for your client, correct? That seems risky in this situation.

KIRBY FARRIS: Correct, but most cases are a risk. You don’t know all of the facts until you start investigating the case. We actually get a lot of case referrals from other personal injury attorneys when a case becomes too complicated or it is necessary to go to trial. We’ve made a reputation for ourselves in that way.

David Darnell and daughter Abbey Darnell killed when their vehicle was struck by a Chevrolet pickup truck on I-85 Southbound in Opelika

Posted on Wednesday, April 29th, 2020 at 4:24 pm    

On Thursday, April 23rd, 49-year-old David Darnell and his daughter, 16-year-old Abbey Darnell, were killed when their vehicle was struck by a Chevrolet pickup truck on I-85 Southbound in Opelika. David had pulled into the emergency lane to check on his daughter’s vehicle, which had been left earlier due to a flat tire, when the pickup truck struck their vehicle from behind, knocking them into the stranded vehicle. The driver of the pickup truck sustained unknown injuries and was taken via ambulance to Piedmont Midtown Medical Center for treatment. According to their GoFundMe page, David and Abbey Darnell leave behind their wife/mother, Jill Darnell, daughter/sister, Grace Darnell and son/brother, Jack Darnell.

How do you recover after losing your loved ones?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Kirby Farris.

        

TIFFANY BITTNER: Kirby, this is such a traumatic accident for everyone involved. As a wife and mother of four, I am sure the Darnell Family is going to be consumed by grief over the loss of their loved ones. I know I would be. Is there anything they can do to make their lives the slightest bit easier?

KIRBY FARRIS: Tiffany, right now the best thing Mrs. Darnell can do is to grieve and be there for her children. I am thankful that they have a GoFundMe account set up to help with the financial burden of losing loved ones. However, the driver who hit them is most likely liable to cover expenses that the family will incur. These types of situations are why Alabama State Law requires drivers to have insurance policies that cover a minimum of $25,000 in bodily injury per person per accident and $50,000 in bodily injury for all persons per accident. If she wants to remove some of the burden of negotiating with the insurance company, she can hire a personal injury attorney.

TIFFANY BITTNER: I know we have discussed this before, but in regard to Mrs. Darnell’s family, what happens if the liable driver does not have insurance?

KIRBY FARRIS: A personal injury attorney would be able to seek other options for insurance coverage. Insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible, so they may not be so forthcoming with those options. She will need to reach out to someone who has experience in this type of auto accident, because it may require some investigation to prove the liable party.

TIFFANY BITTNER: I assume when you say “this type of auto accident” you mean a car wreck involving a stranded vehicle or a vehicle pulled off into the emergency lane, right?
KIRBY FARRIS: Yes, exactly, as well as accidents resulting in fatalities. Emergency lanes can be narrow and dangerous, especially on interstates where cars are speeding by. Unfortunately, accidents like this are more common than we would like. We see many clients with grave or fatal injuries as a result of a car parked or pulling over into an emergency lane. Proving the person who survived is liable can be a sensitive, yet complicated task.

Trey Jay Downey of Southside Alabama struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle on Hood Road near Linda Lane

Posted on Wednesday, April 29th, 2020 at 9:51 am    

Trey Jay Downey of Southside Alabama struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle on Hood Road near Linda LaneOn April 22nd, Trey Jay Downey, 49, of Southside, Alabama was riding a bicycle on Hood Road near Linda Lane when he was struck by Jason Lamar Craig, 41. Craig was driving near his home when he reportedly struck Downey from behind. Craig immediately fled the scene of the accident and was later taken into custody and charged with manslaughter. “The police department remains committed to providing an impartial, thorough, and professional investigation into this fatality crash, which has deeply affected our community,” said Southside Acting Police Chief Blake Ragsdale.

A community and a family are all grieving after a bicycle fatality and a manslaughter charge, what happens now?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Ken, a prominent member of the Southside community has lost their life to a bicycle accident. You’ve shared many warning stories with me about how dangerous it is to bike on main roads. What do you recommend for this grieving family and community?

KEN RILEY: His wife, Donna Downey, is going to be consumed by grief for quite some time. Her and her two children will endure life-altering changes after losing their husband and father – my heart aches for them. My recommendation would be to get a good lawyer so that she is well represented in hopes of returning to as normal of a life as possible. I am currently representing a client in a very similar situation, where her husband was struck and killed by a distracted driver while cycling on a main road.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Tell me more about the bike accident case you are currently working on. Are these types of wrongful death cases handled differently than your normal auto accident cases?
KEN RILEY: In this particular situation, the person who struck my client’s deceased husband was prosecuted and pled guilty. We are now litigating with that person, his insurance and our client’s insurance company. One of the things that we do as lawyers is identify all of the available insurance on behalf of the family. Many times, one or more of the insurance companies will try to slow play a client so that they can wear them down and settle for less. Fortunately, we have strong clients who want justice. In a situation like Ms. Downey’s, the civil case will likely be “stayed” or delayed until the criminal aspect of the wreck has resolved. That can take several months or more. Even if a case is stayed, there are things that can be done to continue to move the case along, which is what we try to do in these situations.

TIFFANY BITTNER: If Mr. Craig is convicted of manslaughter, does the criminal investigation change your approach on this case?

KEN RILEY: There are many considerations that go into every case. The simple answer is “yes,” but every case is different, and every strategy is different. We construct a litigation strategy for each case that is subject to change depending on what may happen during the course of litigation leading up to trial. Our goal is to always put our client in the best position possible to recover full damages from the person who caused everything and the insurance companies who have promised to make things right.

Jack Henry Moody of Birmingham killed in a crash at the intersection of Overton Road and Highway 280 in Jefferson County

Posted on Wednesday, April 29th, 2020 at 9:51 am    

Jack Henry Moody of Birmingham killed in a crash at the intersection of Overton Road and Highway 280 in Jefferson CountyOn Thursday, April 16th, Jack Henry Moody of Birmingham was killed in a crash at the intersection of Overton Road and Highway 280 in Jefferson County. The crash occurred as Moody was traveling through the intersection on Highway 280 with a green light when another vehicle merged onto the highway from Overton Road and struck Moody’s motorcycle, which then caused a fire. The other vehicle fled the scene without assisting Moody and without alerting the police. Moody was taken to UAB Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. Mountain Brook Police are still searching for the driver of the other vehicle.

What happens now that the other driver is still at large?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Ken, my heart breaks for the family of Mr. Moody, especially with the other driver being unknown. Do you see a lot of cases where the other driver flees the scene of the accident?

KEN RILEY: Unfortunately, we do. In fact, we are currently handling several cases involving hit-and-runs, or phantom vehicles, as they’re often called. When this happens, the key is to gather as much information as possible, such as eye-witness accounts, vehicle descriptions, or even security footage from nearby businesses. The more information gathered, the more ways to approach the situation.

TIFFANY BITTNER: If the family was able to obtain security footage, how would that be useful to this situation?
KEN RILEY: Security footage can be helpful in identifying assailants and establishing liability, which is vital in cases like these. It is important to note that if action is not taken to preserve video evidence, the video may “loop” and be erased. There are different policies and loop times depending on who owns and operates the video camera(s). Therefore, it is imperative that a victim or victim’s family act immediately to preserve the evidence. We have been successful in recovering video evidence in car accident cases on many occasions, but sometimes it is just too late.

TIFFANY BITTNER: How would the family go about securing the security footage, if there is any?

KEN RILEY: The easiest way would be to hire an attorney to handle it. Coping with the loss of a loved one is burdensome enough without adding the pressure of trying to meet deadlines. Hiring an experienced attorney to handle the legal and time-sensitive matters gives the family the time they need to grieve, while also being comforted that their worries are being taken care of by professionals.
