Personal Injury Attorneys in Alabama
The personal injury attorneys at Dothan Law Group are committed to fighting for clients who have suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence or reckless actions. A personal injury case is a civil action, which means that if you have suffered injury to yourself, another person, or a business is found legally responsible for causing your injuries, the remedy comes in damages, which is money awarded to you and paid by the liable party (the defendant) to the injured party (the plaintiff). A personal injury lawsuit is handled in civil court. Our attorneys at Dothan Law Group are well-versed in every aspect of personal injury litigation. Whether another person, company, or large corporation is at fault, we will not let anyone bully you out of the compensation you deserve.
Alabama Personal Injury Laws
If you are injured in Alabama, you must file your claim within two years of the injury. In most cases, if you do not file within the statute, your case will be barred. You will not be able to recover any compensation from the person or persons responsible for your injury. When the action is filed in civil court, you become the plaintiff and the case is filed against the wrongdoer, who is the at-fault party or defendant, who is asked to compensate the injured for his or her loss.
Types of Personal Injury
Personal injury claims can be complex. Our team of skilled attorneys can help you understand the laws that apply to your case and will aggressively represent your rights. There are several types of injuries that we litigate. These may include:
Car accidents can happen on any road, anywhere, and for almost any reason, but these are among the most common causes:
- Failing to yield to the right of way
- Improper lane change
- Reckless or aggressive driving
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by the carelessness or negligence of others on the road. Regardless of how safe a rider you are, you cannot control the actions of other motorists on Alabama roads and highways or prevent them from acting carelessly.
Each truck accident is different. They all arise from a unique set of variables and lead to particular injuries. The driver of a passenger car is at an extreme disadvantage when colliding with a tractor-trailer or even a delivery truck because of the sheer size differential. If you were the victim of a truck accident caused by a reckless or a careless truck driver, you may be able to pursue compensation. You can file an insurance claim or civil lawsuit to seek damages to cover the cost of your medical care, lost wages, and other losses.
Some of the most common causes for a premises liability claim include:
- Animal bites and attacks
- Violence due to inadequate security
- Broken and faulty stairs
- Absent or broken hand railings
- Damaged and torn carpeting
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Lead paint injuries
Slip and Fall
Hazardous walking conditions account for a large number of slip and fall accident claims. While some falls are the result of the accident victim’s own clumsiness or recklessness, there are cases when another person is responsible. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be experiencing severe physical pain and emotional distress. When this happens to you, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses through a personal injury lawsuit.
