How My Firm Can Help You

I completely understand the problems and concerns that typically arise following a motor vehicle crash. I understand the injuries and damages that often result from a crash and the struggles most victims face, as they attempt to recover for their losses.

In Alabama, as in every state, there are specific laws and regulations that govern insurance claims and can complicate the recovery of damages. In order to ensure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled, it is important to work with a Birmingham car accident lawyer who knows the laws and can help you navigate the complexities of the legal system.

Understanding Liability & the Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle crashes occur for various reasons, but none of them are purely accidental. Drivers may be distracted, exhausted, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or simply incompetent. If it can be proven that the other driver was negligent, reckless, or acting intentionally in causing your injuries, then that driver can be held responsible for those injuries.

Every driver on the roadway has a duty to exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances” while driving on a public road. What is considered “reasonable” depends on the law. If a driver fails to use reasonable care and his or her actions result in injury to someone else, the driver may be held liable.

I was injured in an accident. What happens next?

Although you may be overwhelmed and stressed, there are a few important steps you can take to preserve any potential claim you may have. Follow the following steps immediately after a crash:

  • Contact the Police: After notifying the police about the crash, be sure to obtain a copy of the police report that is generated. The police report will contain information that will be very useful and could strengthen your case.
  • Obtain Identity and Insurance Information: Unless the other driver refuses to cooperate, you need to obtain his or her name, address, and insurance information. This information may not necessarily be listed in the police report, so it is a good idea to get it yourself at the scene. Also, try to get contact information for any possible witnesses that stayed at the scene.
  • Seek Medical Attention Immediately: It is not at all uncommon for the symptoms of injuries to take time to materialize. Even if you aren’t aware of any injuries immediately after the crash, you should still see a doctor as soon as possible. Also, take notes about how you feel after the accident, when your symptoms first arise, and about your recovery process. Be sure to follow all of your doctor’s instructions and get your prescriptions filled, if needed.
  • Contact Your Insurance Company: After you have done everything you need to take care of yourself, it is time to contact your insurance company to report the motor vehicle crash. This is true even when the other driver is obviously at fault. There may still be certain benefits available to you through your insurance provider, which could prove helpful. If the other driver was uninsured, notifying your insurance company is even more important.
