Pell City, Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys

Accidents happen in a multitude of ways and can affect someone’s entire life if injuries are severe. When someone else’s negligence or carelessness is the cause of an injury, Alabama law dictates that you are due financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering and more. Even in a relatively small city such as Pell City—it houses about 13,000 citizens—injuries from accidents can and will happen on a daily basis.

A personal injury of any type affects not just the victim, but the entire family. Suddenly, you are in need of medical treatment. You may not be able to work for a period of time. You may be permanently disabled or have scarring from the injuries. All of these factors affect the entire family. The experienced Pell City personal injury attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay, P.C. will deal with the at-fault party, the insurance company, and everything else related to the claim. This allows you to heal from your injuries and your family to get back on track.

If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, call us today to protect your rights. We will investigate your claim, gather the evidence necessary to prove your claim, collect all of your medical records and bills, gather lost wage documentation and communicate with the insurance company while you recover.

Why Hire Our Pell City Personal Injury Attorneys to Handle Your Claim

The process of ensuring that you receive the highest possible monetary recovery is best left to an experienced and accomplished personal injury attorney who knows the law, has experience litigating personal injury cases, has successfully tried personal injury cases, understands the legal procedures and hurdles with personal injury cases and is extremely comfortable handling the insurance companies.

Make no mistake, the insurance company for the at-fault party is hard at work to protect its interests by gathering evidence and information to defeat or deny your claim. Undoubtedly, the insurance company will try to offer you the lowest possible amount of money for your injuries. The Pell City personal injury attorneys of Hollis, Wright & Clay, PC are talented, experienced and aggressive advocates for each of our personal injury clients. Our attorneys are adept at communicating with insurance companies and putting the interests of our clients first and in the best position possible to succeed.

Moreover, in some instances, the insurance company will negotiate in bad faith or simply not offer a fair and just amount to the victim. If this happens, our Pell City personal injury attorneys will file a lawsuit on your behalf and pursue compensation via the Alabama court system. And if the insurance company still refuses to offer a fair and reasonable settlement, then our attorneys will take your case to trial and ask a St. Clair County judge or jury to render a verdict for you and award maximum compensation. The Pell City personal injury attorneys at Hollis Wright & Clay, PC are well-equipped and prepared to go to court in St. Clair County should it be necessary.

Our attorneys have achieved some of the highest settlements and/or verdicts in the Circuit Court of St. Clair County, Alabama. We are well-acquainted with the citizens, judges and court staff in St. Clair County, Alabama and have a tremendous track record of success helping injured victims in the area.

Another important note regarding personal injury claims in Alabama is that there is a time limit on filing a lawsuit. If a claim is not filed within the statute of limitations (usually two years), your claim will be forever barred under Alabama law. Our attorneys are experienced in identifying and monitoring the applicable statute of limitations and ensuring that your claim is moved along and either resolved before the statute of limitations expires or a lawsuit is filed within that time frame. Having a personal injury attorney or law firm that is organized and has a system in place to protect your rights is critically important so don’t just trust your claim to anyone.

What Will My Attorney Do to Ensure Success?

Our attorneys bring experience—we’ve been in practice more than 25 years—and we have a vast pool of resources to commit to your claim. We do not require any payment up front for anything. We only get paid if we recover money for you. Hiring our law firm is financially a risk-free endeavor. Our clients never pay anything out of their own pocket.

Initially, we will accurately evaluate your claim to determine a plan for gathering evidence and if needed, reconstructing the accident and determining fault. We will collect evidence through investigative measures, using in-house investigators, as well as outside resources. Gathering and organizing medical records to prove and support your injuries takes quite a bit of time and energy, which our office handles on a daily basis. We will hold the at-fault party’s insurance company accountable for your injuries and are fully prepared to go to trial if an acceptable recovery cannot be agreed upon.

How Can I Help My Attorney Be Successful

While your attorney will handle all aspects of your case, there are a few things you can do on the front end to provide valuable information and help expedite the process and improve your chances of success.

  • If possible, be sure to take pictures and collect any evidence at the scene of the accident. You can present this information to your attorney at your first meeting.
  • Seek medical attention for your injuries. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, many injuries develop over the weeks following the accident. It is important to get medical treatment soon after the accident occurs. Additionally, it is important to document all injuries so that your attorney has enough information to substantiate and prove your injuries to the insurance company.
  • Take notes on anything that happened during or after the accident that could be pertinent information your attorney will need to support your case.
  • Identify any potential witnesses and get their contact information so you can provide this to your attorney at the first meeting.
  • Do not sign anything from the insurance company. Speak to your attorney first. The insurance company will want you to accept a small amount of money and sign a settlement and release agreement which will bar you from filing a claim or lawsuit. Many clients get completely short-changed when this happens.
