Hoover, Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys

A personal injury can have a devastating impact on your life as well as your loved ones. It can affect your livelihood and cause you tremendous pain, discomfort and emotional distress for years to come. A personal injury caused by the negligence or carelessness of someone else should be handled in a way that will ensure you are compensated for medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering and more. Hoover, with some 90,000 residents, experiences its fair share of personal injuries. In fact, the citizens of Hoover could be more susceptible to personal injuries given the significant number of workplaces, roadways, and means for injuries to occur, coupled with the fact that the residents of Hoover are very active people engaging in all kinds of activities.

Why Should the Injured Person Pursue a Claim?

Anytime you suffer a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence, you have a legally viable claim against the person that caused your injuries. Oftentimes, the injured person makes the mistake of impulsively thinking that it was “just an accident” or “they didn’t mean to hurt me” and because of these thoughts, the injured person fails to make a claim. This is a huge mistake and the decision to do nothing is almost always regretted by the injured person. There are many reasons that you should contact the Hoover personal injury attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay, PC following an accident caused by someone else.

First, the at-fault party will likely have liability insurance that will cover them if you make a claim. What this means is that an insurance company, not the individual that caused the accident, will actually pay your claim. You are not taking money from another individual so you shouldn’t feel bad about making a personal injury claim. Secondly, you may be burdened with lifelong injuries and health problems as a result of the incident. Delaying to act or not making a claim at all will deprive you of the compensation you need to recover and/or provide for yourself and your family in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.

Will Your Claim Settle Out of Court?

While 95% of cases never go to trial due to a settlement, there are occasions where a lawsuit must be filed in order to achieve reasonable compensation for your injuries and damages. The liability insurance company for the at-fault-party will typically engage in conduct to delay the process and deprive you of reasonable compensation. Liability insurance companies often prey on the injured victim’s emotions and will make every attempt to pay you less than you deserve. Filing a lawsuit and showing the insurance company that you are prepared to go to trial if necessary, will generally get their attention and result in more meaningful settlement offers.

We will go to work immediately to investigate the accident, gather evidence, talk to witnesses and communicate with the insurance company so that you can focus on resting and recovering from your injuries.

Proving Your Hoover Personal Injury Claim?

For the most part, people have a responsibility to act and behave in a manner that keeps other people safe. For instance, drivers are expected to obey the rules of the road, not drive distracted, not speed, comply with road signs and traffic signals and follow all other driving laws. Should a driver act in a careless or wrongful manner and cause someone to be injured, they can and should be held responsible for the actions they took that injured another person.

Every incident and every case are different. The outcome of a case can literally be determined based on a particular fact or the strength or weakness of a witness’ testimony. It can be difficult to prove negligence or carelessness in a personal injury case. For this reason, you should have an attorney on your side to gather the facts, speak to witnesses and navigate the legal system in order to hold the at-fault party responsible for his or her actions.
