What’s a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers represent injured victims who suffered injuries directly caused by someone else’s careless behavior. After an accident that wasn’t your fault, the personal injury lawyers at Long & Long will review the details of your case and inform you of your legal options.
From conducting an in-depth investigation to gathering the evidence needed to support your claim, our attorneys will know how to best handle your case. We’ll do everything we can to help you receive the justice you deserve.
Types of Compensation
There are various types of compensation you may be entitled to receive after an accident that wasn’t your fault, including:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning ability or permanent disability
- Permanent disfigurement
- Pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life
- Loss of a loved one
- Property damage
In order to win a personal injury case, it must be proven that the other party’s negligent behavior directly caused your injuries. To prove negligence, these four factors must be demonstrated:
It must be proven that the responsible party owed you a duty of care.
It must be proven that the defendant breached their duty of care and acted in a manner below the standard of which a reasonable person would have acted under similar circumstances.
It must also be proven that the responsible party’s negligence directly caused your accident.
Lastly, it must be proven that you suffered damages as a result of your accident, such as emotional or physical injuries and/or property damage.
Proving these four factors of negligence is often challenging without legal guidance. For this reason, we highly recommend that you consult our experienced Alabama personal injury lawyers at Long & Long for help after an accident.
Statute of Limitations in Alabama
The statute of limitations puts a time limit on the victim’s ability to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. Keep in mind that this law varies from state to state, so it’s important to be aware of the strict deadline.
In the state of Alabama, injured victims have exactly two years to file a lawsuit, starting the day the accident happened. Failing to file before this deadline will most likely cause you to receive little to no compensation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Following these suggestions may help protect your legal rights and any compensation you may be entitled to receive:
- Notify the appropriate personnel that you have been involved in an accident
- Take photos of the accident scene and your injuries
- If there were witnesses, make sure to record their statements and ask for their contact information
- Seek medical attention
- Contact an attorney
Not necessarily. Most personal injury cases are settled and never need to go to trial. During the negotiation stage, all parties involved will discuss the details of the accident and attempt to reach a fair settlement amount.
If a settlement cannot be agreed upon, then your case may need to go to trial. In this case, it is even more important to have an experienced attorney representing your interests.
The value of your claim will depend on the specific circumstances of your case. Every personal injury claim is unique and results will vary. Having a knowledgeable lawyer review your case will give you the best chance of receiving the maximum amount of compensation you’re entitled to.
It’s difficult to predict the exact amount of time it will take for your case to settle. Some cases can be resolved in a matter of weeks, while others can take a year or more. If the details of your case are complicated, it may take longer to reach a fair settlement.
