Tuscaloosa Personal Injury Attorney
Tuscaloosa is located in West Central Alabama on the Black Warrior River. With a population of about 100,000, it is the fifth largest city in Alabama and is the county seat of Tuscaloosa County. Tuscaloosa is the principal city in the Tuscaloosa Metropolitan Area, which includes Tuscaloosa, Hale and Pickens Counties and has a population of nearly 236,000.
Mercedez-Benz built its first automotive assembly plant in North America in Tuscaloosa County. The plant remains a huge draw to the area. However, the University of Alabama is the primary economic and cultural impact on Tuscaloosa and the surrounding area. The University of Alabama is the oldest and largest public university in Alabama and offers the only publicly-supported law school in the state.
Tuscaloosa has previously been named the "Most Livable City in America," "100 Best Communities for Young People," and one of the "50 Best College Towns." It has also been known as "The City of Champions" due to the success of the University of Alabama football team.
The residents of Tuscaloosa, like all citizens of Alabama, are susceptible to a wide variety of personal injury incidents, including roadway accidents, workplace events, dog bites, premises liability incidents, bike accidents and more. Those living and visiting Tuscaloosa are likely at a higher risk of injury due to the nature of the city.

Acting quickly is key when you suffer a personal injury through no fault of your own. Your primary concern should be seeking medical assistance. Your well being is obviously paramount, and immediate medical attention should be your first objective. Only after you have been treated and established a medical care plan for your injuries, should you call an attorney. Contacting an attorney early in the process benefits you as well as your attorney. Some of the reasons why you should hire an attorney as soon as possible include:
- Most states, including Alabama, have strict statute of limitations laws. Once the statute of limitations has expired, you will be unable to file a lawsuit for the incident.
- Key witnesses to the event will likely forget important information as time passes. Memories as well as evidence from the scene are fresh right after the incident but will get stale, lost or forgotten as time passes. An attorney can promptly act on your behalf to preserve testimony and evidence.
- Insurance companies for the opposing side will begin working immediately and will attempt to gather evidence that is unfavorable to your compensation claim. Don't let insurance companies take advantage of you and your situation.
Alabama law dictates that if you prove your case, then you are entitled to compensation for a variety of damages or injuries, including but not limited to:
- emotional distress,
- past and future lost wages,
- past and future medical bills,
- permanent scarring and injuries and
- pain and suffering.
