What You Could Be Compensated For
The liable party in an accident is legally obligated to cover any costs you’ve incurred due to your injury. If they are insured, then it’s their insurance company’s responsibility.
We will file your claim with the liable party’s insurance company and seek fair compensation. If this is unsuccessful, we will take legal action against the liable party. Examples of damages you could receive compensation for include:
- Medical costs
- Physical and/or emotional therapy
- Lost wages
- Decreased ability to earn in the future
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Temporary/permanent disability
- Lower quality of life
Your lawyer will identify all your damages, value them, and fight for the compensation you are entitled to.
Establishing Negligence in Your Bessemer, AL Personal Injury Case
For you to receive compensation for your injuries and other damages, we must prove the liable party’s negligence.
We will show the four elements of negligence are met in your case. The four tenets are duty of care, breach of duty of care, causation, and damages. Let’s say you were in a car accident with a careless driver. We would prove their negligence by demonstrating:
- They had a duty of care to other road users to drive responsibly
- They breached their duty of care by driving carelessly
- The breached duty of care caused your accident
- You have damages as a result of the accident
File a Lawsuit Before the Statute of Limitations Runs Out
You have limited time to file a lawsuit. If an insurance settlement doesn’t work out, you’ll want to have the option to file a lawsuit. You may not have this option, however, if the statute expired. So, you should allow a lawyer to get started on your case immediately after your accident.
In Alabama, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years, according to AL Code § 6-2-38.
Two years may seem like a while, but there is plenty to do to ensure a solid case. So, don’t waste another moment. Let’s get to work.
