We Fight for You in All Types of Personal Injury Matters
Accidents and personal injuries can occur in a variety of ways. We have a proven track record of success in representing clients who have been injured or lost a loved one in Alabama.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents and truck accidents are incredibly common on Alabama’s highways and roadways. Negligence can occur for a variety of reasons, including distracted driving, intoxicated driving, poorly maintained roads, reckless driving, and defective auto parts.
You have rights after an injury on another party’s premises. We represent clients in premises liability cases where a property owner or manager fails to keep their premises safe for guests, visitors, or tenants. These circumstances often result in dangerous slip and fall and other types of injuries.
When a product isn’t designed, manufactured, or marketed properly, the results can lead to injury and even death. Common defective items that we typically see in products liability cases include toys, medical devices, tools, chemicals, and car parts. Children are particularly vulnerable to dangerous products that might be choking hazards or cause other serious injury.
When medical providers fail to uphold their duty of care to patients, they should be held accountable for the resulting damages. Common medical errors in malpractice cases include wrong diagnosis, medication errors, unnecessary procedures, all of which can cause injury or even death.
What is My Alabama Personal Injury Case Worth?
At Thiry & Caddell, LLP, we believe that everyone should be held accountable for their negligent actions. While we can’t promise a particular result in your case, we have fought and won thousands of cases across South Alabama. If you or a loved one have been the victim of an accident, you may be entitled to several different forms of compensation:
- Money for medical bills and all healthcare-related expenses associated with the injury.
- Compensation for the future cost of medical care and all types of rehabilitation.
- Money for lost wages due to missed work.
- If you were disabled, compensation for loss of potential earnings.
- Compensation for non-economic damages, such as emotional trauma, disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
- For a wrongful death case, money for funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship, and lost income.
If you were injured at work due to another party’s actions, you may be entitled to both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury case. And depending on the nature of the injury, you may also be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
Alabama Personal Injury Laws
Every personal injury case is governed by certain laws in the Alabama civil justice system. While each situation is unique, several laws can impact most personal injury cases.
Statute of Limitations
Statutes of limitations are time limits for filing a claim. In Alabama, you generally have just two years to file a lawsuit after an accident. If you miss this deadline, you will be unable to pursue the negligent party in court.
Shared Fault Laws
Once your claim is underway, it’s possible that the other party or their insurance company will claim that you were partially responsible for the accident. Alabama is one of the few states with a strict “contributory negligence” rule.
In short, if you were found to be even 1% at fault, you will not be able to recover anything from the party. For this reason, it is vital that you discuss your matter with a seasoned personal injury lawyer and avoid discussing it with anyone else.
Waiting too long to discuss your claim with an attorney could put your case and recovery at risk. It’s rare that the court grants exceptions to any deadlines. For your best chance at securing compensation, contact us immediately for a free and confidential consultation.
What to Expect from a Personal Injury Lawsuit
The word “lawsuit” shouldn’t discourage you from pursuing the parties responsible for your injuries. Most personal injury cases settle successfully without the need to enter a courtroom.
When you contact an attorney, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are signing up for a lengthy court battle. As experienced personal injury lawyers, we can often expedite the process to get you the most favorable results through negotiation.
When you retain qualified legal counsel, you are sending the insurance company a message that you aren’t afraid to go to court in pursuit of fair compensation. If they refuse to offer you a reasonable settlement, we are always prepared to pursue your case all the way to trial.
Our firm will handle all of the legwork for your case, including collecting evidence and filing your claim well within all required deadlines. We keep you informed every step of the way, so you have peace of mind that your legal matter is in the best hands possible.
