Motor Vehicle / Trucking Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents occurring daily on Alabama roads and highways often result in significant bodily injuries to drivers and passengers. The “Rules of the Road” are often violated by negligent or reckless drivers for a number of reasons including inattentiveness, fatigue, speeding, driving under the influence, and more frequently texting while driving.

Unfortunately, Motor Vehicle Accidents typically result in some form of bodily injury to victims. Injuries can vary significantly from accident to accident:

  • Damage to muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues
  • Cuts, burns and lacerations to the body
  • Broken or dislocated bones or limbs
  • Paralysis or death

Injuries suffered as a result of these types of accidents can be severe and life altering to both the injured victims and their families. In all cases, it is very important to have someone investigate the facts as soon as possible after your accident. Failure to do so may mean evidence may be lost or damaged and witnesses may become unavailable. It is extremely important to aggressively investigate the case and preserve any necessary evidence and testimony.

It is typical for most Motor Vehicle Accidents to involve insurance coverage of some kind. It is in your best interest to speak with me before speaking with any insurance representative. When you have been injured because of someone else's negligence, your claim will be handled through that individual's liability insurance company. However, in some instances at-fault drivers do not carry liability insurance (or more frequently the insurance they have is minimal or not adequate to compensate you for your injuries).

It is critical to have an attorney who not only understands an accident scene and who can unravel the accident causes but who understands your insurance coverage options, including those involving Uninsured (UM) and Underinsured Motorists (UIM). I recognize the medical, economic and emotional impact a Motor Vehicle Accident can have on your life. You need an attorney who is fully qualified to handle your claim from start to finish; not only quickly, but more important, appropriately.

If you or a family member has been injured in a car accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, or any accident involving a motor vehicle, contact me as soon as practical to discuss your case.
