Injuries in Homewood

Along with the typical personal injuries such as car and truck accidents, slip and falls, workplace injuries, product liability, the city is home to Red Mountain Park and Samford University. Both of these institutions can have a higher risk of accidents with injuries. Red Mountain Park has a network of hiking, mountain biking trails, a zip-line course, and a rock-climbing tower, all of which can lead to a variety of serious injuries. Samford University, a private college, brings with it many students which creates an increased risk of injuries.

Many people don’t anticipate ever needing a personal injury attorney. However, if you are injured in any type of accident through no fault of your own, receiving the compensation you deserve for lost wages, medical bills, emotional distress, and more should definitely be considered. Whether it is a minor injury or major injury, you deserve to be compensated and at the very least, you should contact an attorney to discuss your rights and options.

Our attorneys work for FREE unless we recover money for you. Thus, you can call and speak to one of our attorneys to discuss your situation without even retaining our law firm. If you decide not to pursue a claim after talking with our attorneys, then you don’t owe us anything. However, if the accident was not your fault and there is an opportunity to get compensated for your injuries, we highly recommend that you pursue a claim. Don’t let the large insurance companies take advantage of you or get away with not paying you what you deserve. Insurance companies will have their own attorneys and will try to pay you as little as possible for your injuries and bills.

If you or a loved one has been injured in Homewood or its surrounding areas, be sure to contact the skilled Homewood personal injury attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay at 844-LAW-TALK or 205-324-3600 or online here.

Why Should You Call a Personal Injury Attorney?

Many things are factored into the benefits of calling a personal injury attorney after your injury. Below are some, but not all, of those reasons:

  • Primarily, you should not take on big insurance companies and their attorneys on your own. The attorneys for the insurance company of the at-fault party want to pay you as little as possible. You need someone on your side, advocating for you, to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and other losses.
  • If you are uncertain about the viability of your personal injury claim, always call an attorney. The Homewood personal injury attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay, P.C. work on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not get paid unless we recover for you. You have nothing to lose in having an attorney review your situation and decide if it’s a viable claim.
  • If you are curious how much your claim could be worth but aren’t sure about hiring an attorney, well just call as we have FREE consultations. A personal injury attorney can asses the full extent of the injuries and losses, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future costs associated with the injury.
  • If the insurance company offered you a settlement, do not take a settlement offer without having an attorney review the offer and determine if the offer is reasonable. Don’t make the mistake of just accepting the offer from the insurance company without speaking to an attorney. You may regret the decision later by finding out that your injury justified a much larger settlement.
  • Contact an attorney immediately if the at-fault party is attempting to deny fault. It is critically important that you have an attorney on your side that is trying to gather information and evidence to support your claim. With the passage of time, witnesses lose interest in helping and their memories fade. Other relevant evidence in the case will become stale or not preserved with the passage of time
  • If your claim was denied, be sure to contact an attorney. An attorney is skilled at dealing with insurance companies and can negotiate in ways you would not be able to do.
  • Always remember that attorneys have the resources, money and knowledge to conduct thorough investigations, gather evidence, and interview witnesses to strengthen your case. Our attorneys utilize investigators, accident reconstructionist, engineers, medical experts, forensic experts, toxicologists and a host of other experts to build a strong case for our clients.
What Types of Accidents Qualify as Personal Injury Claims in Homewood?

Knowing when to hire and why you should hire a personal injury attorney begins with knowing what likely constitutes a viable personal injury claim. Generally, personal injury cases arise from incidents in which an individual is harmed due to the negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or intentional actions of another. Below are some but not all of the more common types of personal injury claims:

  • Car & Truck Accidents: Personal injury claims arising from car accidents can range from wrongful death and serious accidents to minor collisions. Don’t ever assume an accident that seems less serious will not result in lasting injuries or injuries that develop later.
  • Premises Liability: Property owners and managers can be held responsible for injuries that occur on their property. This can include dangerous and defective conditions causing falls or other injuries.
  • Dog bites: Victims of dog bites can pursue compensation for medical expenses and emotional trauma. This is generally covered under the dog owner’s, renter’s or homeowner’s insurance.
  • Product Liability: Injuries that are a result of faulty or defective products.
  • Work Injuries: Workers injured at work or on a construction site are eligible under the law for specific benefits and compensation.
  • Medical Malpractice: Medical negligence claims can arise from errors made by negligent healthcare professionals.
  • Dram Shop Liability: These claims arise in circumstances where a bar or restaurant overserves alcohol to a customer and the customer injures someone as a result of being intoxicated. Under these circumstances, the bar or restaurant can be held liable to the injured victim for overserving the customer.
