CAR ACCIDENTS

Birmingham AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEYS

After an accident, you have a lot on your mind. Your health is most important, but if you are the breadwinner in your family, you also must consider how you will support everyone. Not having a paycheck while you recover is difficult enough. Having multiple medical bills to pay only makes it worse. Expenses such as doctors, physical therapy, medication, surgery, and hospital visits can pile up very quickly. You might also have to pay for damage to your car, truck or other personal property.

We can help ensure that your claim is presented in a clear, complete, and timely manner. We can evaluate whether your medical records reflect the true extent of your injuries.

HAVE YOU BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT?

  • If you have been injured in a car accident and are visiting our site, you probably have questions about what to do next. Most people who consult attorneys get frustrated with the process of dealing with an insurance company, which is understandable. Insurance adjusters are experienced in handling accident cases and they have a job to do, which is to save the insurance company money. In other words, the insurance company wants to compensate you as little as they can to get you to settle.
  • We help accident victims every day fight the insurance company. While most cases settle, we many times go to court if the insurance company is still being stubborn and not offering fair compensation for the harm its insured caused. It is important that you understand the value of your case with an attorney and without an attorney.

Case Studies

We represented a gentleman who was injured while he was riding a motorcycle. Our client was 42 years old at the time that he was struck by another vehicle. As a result of the crash, our client injured his right shoulder, which required surgery to repair. The insurance company did not make an offer to settle his case. Our trial team went to court in Jefferson County and secured a jury verdict in the amount of $325,000. Casey v. Law, CV-2015-904726. Trial team: Ken Riley and JD Lawrence.

In another case, our trial team went to court on behalf of our client who had been experiencing seizures following a car wreck in which she was a passenger in a car where another vehicle turned in front of her. The Tuscaloosa County jury awarded $400,000 after our client had only been offered $100,000 prior to trial. Carson v. Godfrey, CV-2016-900641. Trial team: Kirby Farris and Nate Vanderveer.

In another case, our client was diagnosed with a labral tear in his shoulder, which required two months of physical therapy after he was rear-ended by a driver while travelling on I-459. The insurance company said that our client contributed to cause the wreck and only offered $5,500 prior to trial, which we believed was insufficient. Our trial team secured a verdict on behalf of our client in Jefferson County in the amount of $95,000. Muhammad v. Tobin, CV-2014-903813. Trial team: Ken Riley and Anastasia Allmon.

Our 27-year-old client suffered nonsurgical protruding discs in her back, which required physical therapy after the driver of her vehicle made an illegal U-turn to cause the wreck. The insurance company cited the Guest Passenger law as a defense to liability. After only being offered $17,000, our trial team secured a $375,000 verdict against the driver. Goodman v. Holsomback, CV-2016-900895. Trial team: Kirby Farris and Jessica Zorn.

Our client in Marion County was offered $100,000 prior to our trial team’s efforts to secure a jury verdict of $1 million. In this case, our client, who was driving a motorcycle, was caused to leave the roadway by an erratically driving police vehicle. The Defendant denied any responsibility at trial, but our trial team was successful in helping our client, who had suffered a broken leg and ribs as well as injuries to his thoracic spine and spleen. While our client had a good physical recovery, he still had ongoing limitations associated with his injuries. Myers v. Haleyville Police Department, CV-2015-900152.
