Maximizing Recovery Sources
With more than 15 years of experience handling personal injury cases, we understand that one key to obtaining favorable results is identifying and pursuing all sources of recovery. We will evaluate your case to determine the best course of action. Options may include:
Third-party insurance coverage. If the other party caused the accident during the course and scope of his or her employment, we may be able to pursue the employer's coverage.
Uninsured motorist coverage. If the liable driver does not have car insurance, we can review the uninsured motorist coverage in your policy.
Underinsured motorist coverage. In situations where the liable party's insurance coverage is less than your damages, we can also review the underinsured coverage in your policy.
Contributory Negligence Concerns
Alabama is a contributory negligence state, which means juries are instructed that if they find you to be 1 percent at fault, each party would bear their own loss. We have a sophisticated understanding of contributory negligence and how it can affect settlement negotiations. We will evaluate your case for liability and damages, two hallmarks of a strong case. It is important that you consult with a lawyer who understands this law so you don't offer the defense anything it can use against you at trial.
Wrongful Death Cases
If a loved one died as the result of a personal injury accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the liable party. The state provides punitive damages, which go beyond the cost of medical treatment and emotional damages. They are designed to punish the liable individual for his or her wrongful conduct. Our law firm is dedicated to helping clients receive optimal results.
