Homewood, Alabama Car Accident Attorneys

While not quite as frequent as in larger cities such as Birmingham, car accidents in Homewood, Alabama, are still a significant concern for residents and commuters alike. Whether it be Highway 31 or some of the city’s well-traveled roads, such as Lakeshore Drive and Oxmoor Road, collisions ranging from minor fender-benders to more serious crashes still occur. Speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, inclement weather, poor vehicle maintenance, running a redlight, running a stop sign are all common factors that lead to car accidents in and around the city of Homewood. While the Homewood police department does a great job enforcing the traffic laws and discouraging careless and distracted driving, car accidents still happen despite these best efforts by local law enforcement.

Community initiatives focusing on safe driving practices and heightened awareness continue to play a crucial role in mitigating the occurrence of car accidents in the vibrant city of Homewood. However, car accidents do occur and leave victims and their families left to pick up the pieces of their lives. When this happens, you need tough and aggressive attorneys to fight for you.

Our law firm has significant financial and investigative resources —in-house and contracted – that allow us to take on the BIG INSURANCE COMPANIES and handle complicated, expensive car wreck cases.

While many car accident cases are straightforward and easy to understand, there are times where a dispute as to what happened exists between the involved parties. There are times where witnesses have a different opinion about how the accident occurred. There are times where a specific determination of a vehicle’s speed makes or breaks a case. There are times where a determination as to whether brakes were applied, and if so when, is critically important to a case. Our quick investigative actions, and the ability to finance these efforts, will help capture an accurate explanation of exactly what occurred, as well as preserving vital evidence such as a black box download or cell phone data.
