What a Tuscaloosa Personal Injury Lawyer Can Do
Although you have the option of representing yourself during a personal injury claim in Tuscaloosa County, this could lead you to accept a settlement offer from an insurance company that is far too low for the severity and extent of your injuries. Insurance companies often use many strategic methods to minimize clients’ payouts. Hiring a lawyer enables you to combat these tactics with some of your own to fight for fair compensation. Insurance companies generally take cases more seriously once clients hire attorneys. Retaining a personal injury lawyer could help you achieve the settlement or trial verdict your serious injuries demand.
Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?
Not every accident in Tuscaloosa will give you the right to file a lawsuit for your damages. You will only have grounds for a claim if another person negligently, carelessly, wantonly or intentionally caused your injuries. The breach of duty of care by another person must have caused or substantially contributed to the accident in question for the defendant to owe you money. The attorneys at Drake Law Firm can review your case to let you know if you have the elements necessary for a claim.
- Breach of duty
If you do have a personal injury case, you must file within two years of the date of sustaining the injury. This is Alabama’s statute of limitations on all personal injury claims. The same deadline will apply whether you need to file a personal injury, product liability or premises liability claim. For a wrongful death lawsuit, the clock starts ticking on the date of death. Our lawyers can take care of the legal end of things to submit your claim to the Tuscaloosa County courts before the deadline.
How We Can Help
If you do have the elements of a personal injury suit, Drake Law Firm’s attorneys can help you fight for maximum compensation for all your economic and noneconomic damages. We will review how the personal injury has impacted your life. Then, we will collect evidence and build your case in a way that demonstrates to a claims adjuster, judge or jury how greatly the accident affected you. A successful case with our assistance could end in compensation for damages: 100% of your lost wages, past and future medical expenses, property damage repairs, pain and suffering, and more.
