Our Clients Include Those Who Have Suffered Serious Personal Injuries Caused By:
- Car Accidents
Automobile accidents are very serious and lead to a tremendous number of injuries throughout Alabama. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a car accident, you need to act quickly and protect your legal rights.
- Trucking Accidents
Tractor trailers and large trucks pose a particular risk to drivers of passenger cars. Injuries from these accidents can be quite serious. If you have been involved in an accident with a truck, contact our attorneys for assistance.
- Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents are senseless. No one should be driving while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These drivers have impaired perceptions and reflexes and often cause grave injury to the passengers of other cars. If you have been in an accident with a drunk driver, call us for help.
- Nursing Home Abuse
All too often, seniors entrusted to nursing homes face abuse and neglect. Whether physical, sexual, verbal or emotional abuse, the injury is real. Others face neglect, from a lack of medical care to simple cleaning and hygiene issues. Bedsores are extremely painful and dangerous, and there is no reason that a properly cared for person would suffer bedsores. If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home, call us right away. It is especially imperative that we act quickly to help those who are currently being abused or neglected.
- Railroad Accidents / FELA
Railroad accidents, while not as frequent as automobile and truck accidents, are extremely serious. Passengers, railway workers and those outside the train can suffer serious and life threatening injuries. Call us if you or a family member has been injured.
- Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents involve various injuries – tripping on broken walkways, slipping on wet surfaces and a wide range of other injuries. This can happen in a business, a home or in a public space. If you have been injured, call our attorneys today.
- Dangerous Products / Defective Toys
Many people suffer injuries from products they’ve purchased. Often these injuries are suffered by children playing with toys. All sorts of products can cause injury. Some may be defectively manufactured. Others may have a defective design that causes them to be inherently dangerous. Whatever the case, if you have been injured, you have rights. Contact our attorneys to discuss your case and see if we can help you secure a recovery.
- Bad Faith by Insurance Companies
If you’ve been injured, the insurance company should pay. All too often, they want to pay too little or not at all. Our attorneys have experience fighting these companies to get the results you need and deserve. Call for a free consultation.
- Dog Bite Accidents
Dog bits are real injuries that do occur and can cause serious injury. Owners of dogs are liable for their pets and if you have been injured by someone’s dog, you do have legal rights. Call us today to discuss your case.
- Childhood Related Accidents
Children are the most vulnerable among us. They often suffer serious injuries that are not their fault. If your child has been injured, speak with one of our personal injury attorneys. They have rights, and we can advocate on their behalf.
- Wrongful Death
Sadly, some accidents and injuries are so severe that they cost an individual their life. This can give rise to a wrongful death action, in which another party may be held liable. This is not a criminal case, no one is “prosecuted” in a wrongful death case. These cases seek a financial recovery for the loss. Contact our compassionate attorneys to discuss your situation.
If you have been injured but do not see your case listed above, we can still help. The list above are the most common cases, but certainly not all possible injuries a person may suffer. If you or a loved one has been injured, please contact us today.
