Mountain Brook, Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys

When going about your normal daily routine, you never expect to be injured in an accident at the hands of another’s reckless behavior. However, these types of accidents occur every day in Alabama, with Mountain Brook being no exception. A personal injury can have devastating effects on your ability to work, your income, your finances, your health, your future, your family and much more. The Mountain Brook personal injury attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay, P.C. can help you get the compensation you deserve when your life has been turned upside down after an accident.

It is important to remember that simply being in an accident does not mean you are entitled to be compensated. Under the law, you must prove that the accident was the fault of someone else in order to be entitled to money damages. Accidents that occur due to another person’s negligence, recklessness, or poor judgment include car and truck accidents, slip and falls, medical errors, defective products, dog and animal attacks, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace injuries, and more. Unfortunately, Alabamians, and the citizens of Mountain Brook, fall victim to these types of injuries on a regular basis.

Don’t Take a Settlement Before Speaking with an Attorney

Generally, should you suffer a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence, the insurance company will pressure you into accepting a low ball, quick settlement. As part of any settlement, you will be required to sign a settlement and release agreement that releases the at-fault person and their insurance company from any further liability or responsibility related to the incident. It is important that you do not accept anything or sign anything prior to talking to an attorney. Keep in mind that insurance adjusters work for large insurance companies, not for you. Insurance companies will try to coerce you into accepting a low settlement as quickly as possible—one that may not even cover the expenses you incurred due to the accident. Because your mental, physical, and financial health is on the line, you cannot afford to face the insurance company on your own and make a mistake during such a critical time.

The skilled Mountain Brook personal injury attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay, P.C. are on your side and are here to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Under Alabama law, you are entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, emotional distress, and more.

What will Your Mountain Brook Personal Injury Attorney do for You?

There is no law stating you must hire an attorney to represent you in your personal injury claim; however, rest assured that the at-fault party’s insurance company has attorneys. With your health and future on the line, it is best to trust skilled personal injury attorneys, such as the ones at Hollis, Wright & Clay, P.C., with your legal claim. You need someone on your side who will do the legwork and pursue the claim on your behalf while you heal from your injuries. Some of the things your personal injury attorney will handle for you are as follows:

  • Accurately and effectively review your claim.
  • Collect evidence to determine and prove fault.
  • Deal with the insurance companies to protect your rights.
  • Ensure you receive the proper medical treatment.
  • Gather and organize medical records and invoices to prove your injuries.
  • Hold insurance companies fully responsible and at-fault parties accountable for paying the compensation you deserve.
  • Gather evidence related to any lost wage claim.
  • Negotiate effectively with the other side.
  • Be fully prepared to take the case to court if need be.
  • Handle every aspect of your personal injury claim.

Many injured victims believe they can navigate filing and pursuing a claim on their own after an injury. However, a personal injury lawyer brings experience and resources to a case far beyond what an injured accident victim has on his own.

Maximizing Your Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim

While your attorney will carry the load ensuring the at-fault party’s insurance company pays you fairly for your injuries and damage, there are a few things you can do to assist in the process.

  • Seek immediate medical attention: Severe injuries are generally addressed at the scene by first responders. Some victims may be transported to the hospital. However, even if you feel your injuries are not serious, and you weren’t transported to the hospital, it is extremely important to still be evaluated by a medical professional. Do not refuse an initial evaluation. And always get evaluated by a medical professional, even if it’s not at the scene.
  • Gather and document evidence: Especially in the event of an accident involving a vehicle, be sure to gather all the information possible about the accident and the parties involved. For a car accident, be sure you get contact information of the at-fault driver. Get the contact information for any witnesses to the incident. Take pictures of the scene and the surrounding area for reference. After the accident, document lost wages, medical procedures, and any issues the arise from the accident.
  • Let an attorney contact the other insurance company: Get to an attorney quickly and let your lawyer establish contact with the insurance company for the at-fault driver.
  • Do not provide statements to anyone: The at-fault party’s insurance adjuster may ask for a statement. Do not comply. You are not legally obligated, and any statement you give could hinder your case. Let your attorney handle all communication.
