What is a “personal injury” claim?

When you sustain injuries as the result of someone else’s negligence, you can file a claim for compensation through the civil justice system. A crime does not need to have been committed for you to make this claim, but you do have to prove that you suffered a harm, injury, or loss in some way.

How long do I have to file a claim?

Alabama has a statute of limitations of two years for injury claims. Generally speaking, that means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury claim.

What kinds of damages am I entitled to receive?

Depending on the nature of your case, you may be entitled to economic losses (medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other quantifiable losses) and non-economic losses (pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and other less-tangible assets). In some cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages: damages designed to punish egregious conduct, recklessness, and/or wrongdoing.

If your loved one has died and you file a wrongful death claim, you are only entitled to claim punitive damages.

The careless driver needs to be held accountable for the physical hurt, mental suffering, and economic losses his or her carelessness causes. Whether you were in a single-car crash or a multi-car pileup, a collision with a truck driver, hit by a driver while walking, or sustained injuries in a bike or motorcycle accident, you can trust us to fight for you.
