The Alabama personal injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are here to fight for the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. And because we work on a contingency fee basis, you owe us nothing unless we win.

Types of Personal Injury Claims
Many personal injury cases—like auto accident claims—can cause medical emergencies that strain a family’s financial situation, or even result in the death of a loved one.
Some of the most common types of personal injury claims include:
- Birth Injuries
- Car Accidents
- Class-Action Suits
- Commercial Truck Accidents
- Defective Medications
- Defective Products
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Wrongful Death
The physical and emotional pain that results from injuries like these can take years to heal. In many cases, lives are never the same. The families of those who were killed or have been permanently disabled by their injuries deserve guidance. Cory Watson Attorneys understands how difficult life can be after a serious injury, and we’re here to help if you were harmed or a loved one was killed due to negligence.
Physical Injury and Emotional Damage
Psychological damage is often one of the most overlooked types of trauma an injury victim can sustain. Bodily harm from a car accident, for example, can be seen by lacerations, broken limbs, or even facial disfigurement, but the mental trauma that victim suffers is not always detected.
Some of the most common symptoms of psychological trauma from a personal injury include:
- Abusing drugs or alcohol (self-medication)
- Flat emotional affect
- Panic attacks
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Suicidal thoughts or actions
Emotional damage is just as scarring as physical injury, and many personal injury victims face these challenges on their own because they do not know where to turn for help. If you or someone you love is experiencing any psychological symptoms following an incident of personal injury, contact a mental health professional immediately for diagnosis and treatment.
The next step should be to contact a personal injury law firm to pursue your legal options. Don’t suffer in silence—whether your injuries are physical, mental, or emotional, your rights deserve to be protected.
