What Our Clients Are Saying

Personal Injury FAQ

Most people are either hesitant or won’t even bother to try and contact a lawyer after they have sustained a personal injury, as they are under the impression it will cost them a lot of money. However, many personal injury attorneys based in Alabama work on contingency. This means you will only need to pay them once they have won your case. At this stage, the fee that you will be liable for will be based on a pre-agreed percentage of your settlement, which is usually between 25% to 40%.

The percentage is also dependent on the amount of work that the lawyer has put into your case or when you accept a settlement from an insurance company before court proceedings commence. In these cases, you will probably owe the lawyer less than you would have if the case had to go to court. This type of pay structure protects you from having to pay for an attorney and injuries should you receive no settlement. It will also mean that the lawyer is committed to your case, due to the fact that their pay will be dependent on the settlement amount they can get for you.

Every personal injury case is unique, which makes it difficult to predict an exact timeline. The most important aspect that you should have in mind when trying to work out your case is your current state of health. Our attorneys will always put your health and recovery first.

Attempting to get your claim settled before you finish recovering might lower your claim. Your lawyer will work with doctors and any other health-care providers to maintain records of every bill along with any other related medical costs.

After receiving all of your medical expenses and records, our lawyers will work on reviewing the available information. The review involves categorizing your damages and expenses.

Compensation is intended to cover losses you have suffered due to the negligence of another person. If it was not for the careless actions of the other party, you would not have experienced such damages. Even though monetary compensation might not always return your life to what it once was, it is intended to help make your life as normal as possible.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are focused around reimbursing you for losses that are ascertainable. These damages are easily proven through verifiable means or through documentation.

You will receive invoices for medical treatments, which include doctors visits, medications, surgery, emergency care, any appointments with a specialist, hospitalization, along with other costs.

At the same time, if you are unable to return to work due to your injuries, you are able to use income-tax records or previous pay stubs to claim for the wages you have lost.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic are meant to cover hardships you encounter due to your injuries. These do not have a set value and are difficult to determine. These damages include disfigurement, suffering, pain, scarring, a change to quality-of-life, and any other related losses.

Personal injury lawyers use specific strategies to establish non-economic damages when it comes to negotiations in court or with insurance providers.

There is a reason as to why the insurance adjusters are known for encouraging individuals not to obtain legal representation. Injury victims that have an attorney on their side will, in most cases, obtain much higher compensation compared to the victims who accept an initial offer from an insurance company. The insurance companies work hard on trying to convince victims that their injury case will not be worth disputing, yet this is not true.

There are no set rates when it comes to compensation for personal injury cases. When you decide to hire an attorney they will ensure that every possible aspect is covered when it comes to your reimbursement. We also find it important that you receive the necessary medical attention and treatment so that you can start recovering. This might include rehabilitation and lost pay

The main responsibility of any personal injury lawyer is to assist you in trying to achieve maximum compensation along with working out a value that is fair on the claim. This includes presenting all the facts which will compelling support the case.

There are no foolproof formulas, and this is why every claim will require personalized attention that is provided by a highly-skilled attorney. A few of the factors that we will take into account when we conduct our calculations include:

• The extent and length of your treatment

• Personal hardships that you are facing due to the incident

• Suffering and pain

• Property damage

• Lost wages

• Medical bills

Along with these factors, a personal injury attorney in Alabama should also take into account proof-of-liability, damages, and causation. If there were any witnesses for your accident, the attorney may use this to their advantage to help prove you were not at fault should the case proceed to court.

When you first meet with your personal injury attorney, they will usually talk to you about a “compensation goal”, and the range of settlement offers that you should expect. Many personal injury cases are settled quickly when the insurance providers offer settlement options regarded as reasonable.

Our attorneys perform a number of duties when it comes to assisting clients. These duties include both professional and ethical rules and codes-of-conduct outlined by associations who license lawyers. Once a State Bar Association has licensed a lawyer to start practicing law, these lawyers are allowed to argue cases, file complaints in courts, prepare legal documentation, and provide legal advice and recommendations to the plaintiffs of personal injuries.

A personal injury lawyer holds the responsibility of interviewing and talking to clients in order to assess their cases. They are then able to identify any issues in their client’s case, which is followed by conducting the necessary research in order to compile a solid and successful case. The professional mandate that is of the greatest importance for personal injury lawyers involves assisting their clients in obtaining justice and compensation that they rightly deserve after they have undergone suffering and losses. This is made possible through advocacy, legal advice, negotiations, and client counseling. The cases are typically headed for trial when and if both parties have failed to reach a settlement that is amicable.

In most cases, insurance companies will fight the case or provide a settlement offer. If the insurance provider has chosen to fight the case, our attorneys will work on preparing the case for court. Our team of lawyers is used to dealing with the big insurance companies on a daily basis.

If you have chosen to take your case to court, settlement agreements can still be a possibility. Before the case reaches trial, your insurance provider might decide to offer you a settlement in their attempts to avoid fees associated with court, along with any other related expenses. If you want to avoid going to trial, we work to make sure you get the best settlement offer possible.
