We have handled thousands of car accident personal injury claims throughout north Alabama. There are a lot of moving parts in a car accident claim, from talking with the difficult insurance adjusters, gathering evidence, obtaining medical records and bills, dealing with liens and subrogation, and trying to figure out whether a personal injury settlement offer is fair.

We handle every part of the case.

Our Approach to Car Accident Cases

We understand that most of our clients don’t want to have to file a lawsuit and go to court. So we try to always settle car accident personal injury claims before filing a lawsuit. Insurance companies sometimes make the settlement negotiation process difficult. Several insurance companies routinely make unreasonably low offers.

If the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable offer, a lawsuit becomes necessary in order to reach a fair settlement of your personal injury claim.  If we have to file a lawsuit in your car accident case, that does not necessarily mean your case will go to trial. The majority of cases will settle prior to trial.

Car Accident Injuries

The most common injuries we see in car accidents are spine injuries involving herniated or bulging discs. Car accidents can also cause shoulder and knee injuries, including torn ligaments or tendons such as an ACL tear or a rotator cuff tear. In very high-impact wrecks, we see fractured bones such as bimalleolar fractures (ankle), tibial plateau fractures (top of the shin bone), and fractures of the sternum.
