Scottsboro, Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys

Although steps can be taken to lessen the likelihood of being injured in an accident, we cannot entirely eliminate accidents themselves. Just like the rest of the state, people who live and work in Scottsboro or Jackson County are all susceptible to being injured in an accident through no fault of their own. Accidents can run the gamut of car and truck accidents, workplace incidents, slip and falls, defective products, bicycle accidents, dog bites and attacks, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, and more.

Our attorneys will handle your claim, the at-fault party, and the insurance company in order to get you the largest possible financial recovery for your injuries.

Under Alabama law, you are entitled to financial compensation for your injuries if someone else is at fault for causing the incident. The types of damages that can be claimed on your behalf include, but are not limited to, money for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, permanent impairment and disfigurement. Rest assured, however, that the insurance company for the at-fault person or party is not just going to accept your claim for money damages and pay what you want.

Why Should You Hire an Attorney for Your Case?

Dealing with insurance companies can be daunting, aggravating, and unproductive if you don’t have the right attorney fighting for you. The motto of many insurance companies is to deny, delay, and defend. Oftentimes, the objective of the insurance company is to draw out the claim for as long as possible in hopes that you will give up and just accept any settlement offer on the table. However, our attorneys are used to such tactics and are adept and skilled at defeating insurance companies that engage in such activities. We will handle negotiating with the insurance companies on your behalf. We will use our vast resources to investigate the accident to ensure you are receiving the largest possible settlement. Insurance companies know that we are prepared to take the case to trial if they don’t offer a fair settlement. With us, you will save yourself time and significantly increase the chances of receiving the compensation you deserve.

How is a Personal Injury Case Defined?

There are many types of accidents that constitute a personal injury claim. If another person’s reckless or careless actions resulted in your injury, they may be held accountable. Your attorney will need to establish that the other party was at fault and/or engaged in wrongful conduct that caused your injuries. You lose nothing by contacting our attorneys to evaluate your accident claim. Your consultation is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL. And if we take on your claim, you will pay nothing up front. We pay for all costs associated with pursuing your claim such as ordering medical records and bills, investigation expenses, expert expenses, filing expenses with the court, deposition costs, and more. We only get paid a fee if we recover money for you and only get reimbursed our expenses if we recover for you.

A few things that need to be in place for a viable personal injury claim are below:

  • The party who caused your injuries had a responsibility to act reasonably so as not to injure you or someone else and failed to do so. For instance, drivers have an obligation to follow all traffic laws to keep other drivers or occupants safe.
  • The accused at-fault party acted negligently or carelessly. For instance, the driver was speeding, texting, running a red light at the time of the incident.
  • Their careless or reckless actions directly caused your injuries.
  • As a result of the accident, you experienced various losses and injuries.

The fact that you sustained an injury doesn’t automatically establish the validity of a personal injury claim. Under the law, you have to prove that the other involved person did something wrong in how they conducted themselves. Our attorney will gather all the details pertaining to your incident during your free and confidential consultation.

Steps You Can Take to Help Your Attorney Make Your Claim Successful

While your attorney will do all of the legwork and investigation for your case, there are a few things you can do upfront to ensure the case is successful.

  • Seek immediate medical attention: It is crucial to promptly seek medical attention to secure a proper diagnosis. While the primary goal is to restore your health, it is also important for your injuries and diagnosis to be documented in medical records. Your attorney will use these medical records in supporting the injuries you sustained and ensuring the at-faulty party’s insurance company pays a fair settlement.
  • Preserve evidence: Take pictures and/or video at the scene of the accident if you can. Write down anything you remember from the accident. Document your healing process and the physical pain and discomfort that you endured. All of these steps will help your attorney when dealing with the insurance company.
  • Adhere to your treatment plan: Of course, adhering to a treatment plan and following the doctor’s order are important. Delaying treatment or ignoring a treatment plan can give the at-fault party’s insurance company ammunition to argue that your injuries are less severe than portrayed.
  • Maintain a record of your expenses: Keep meticulous records of work you miss, bills you pay, and all other expenses and losses you experience due to the accident.
