Injuries and Accidents We Handle

If you’ve experienced any of the following, Those Thumbs Up Guys® may be able to help you seek compensation for your losses.

Alabama’s Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims

A statute of limitations is the time limit a state gives individuals to file different kinds of cases. In Alabama, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is usually 2 years from the date of the accident. However, there are special considerations for minor children, and other circumstances may cause this timeframe to change. We are committed to answering all questions during your free case review and helping you file your claim on time.

If you don’t file your claim within the required timeframe, you can be barred from recovering losses from the responsible party. That is why it is so important to get in touch with an experienced Montgomery personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Those Thumbs Up Guys® are here to help you seek the compensation you deserve!

Proving Negligence Caused the Accident

To have a valid claim, you have to prove the other party was negligent and that your accident and subsequent injuries were the result of their negligent behavior.

Negligence is a failure to act with a reasonable amount of care that’s expected for the situation. For example, driving at a safe speed is a reasonable expectation of care, so if a driver speeds and causes an accident, they are negligent. In some cases, proving negligence can be tricky, so it’s best to have an experienced attorney on your side.

What Losses Can Be Recovered?

A personal injury settlement usually includes a range of losses that result from an accident-related injury. Medical expenses are the most common losses recovered, but you may be entitled to much more in compensation depending on your circumstances. Covered losses may include:

This may include expenses such as:

  • emergency care
  • X-rays
  • home healthcare
  • physical therapy
  • surgery
  • mobility equipment
  • ongoing treatment
  • medication
  • and more

The severity of your injuries will directly impact the amount of compensation you receive in a personal injury claim.

If your injury affected your ability to work, you’re entitled to compensation for lost wages. This may cover wages, tips, commissions, bonuses, retirement contributions, and company perks. You may also recover future lost wages if your accident affects your ability to work long-term or to return to work in your current career.

No matter what you lost as a result of your accident-related injury, Those Thumbs Up Guys® have your back. We’ll make sure we help you seek every penny to which you’re entitled.

Alabama also has contributory negligence laws, which means if it is determined that you are partially responsible for your accident, no matter the degree, you may not be able to recover any compensation at all. That’s why it’s so important to have an ally who knows personal injury law in your corner, fighting for your rights. Let us advocate for you. We’re here for you.

If you lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, the state of Alabama only allows you to recover punitive damages that punish the responsible party for their reckless behavior.

Covering your medical expenses while you wait for a settlement can be challenging, but you have options. You may be able to use your Personal Injury Protection coverage on your insurance plan or health insurance coverage. If you elect to use your insurance, the insurance company may expect reimbursement from a possible settlement.

If you don’t have insurance, you may be able to find a doctor who will treat you with the agreement that you’ll pay them from any possible settlement in the future.

The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend

Within four days of your accident, it’s likely you’ll be contacted by the insurance adjuster for the person responsible. At first, they’ll seem very compassionate and come off like a friend. Then, they’ll make you a low-ball offer that doesn’t come close to the harm you’ve suffered. If you refuse, they might try bullying or threatening you that if you don’t sign off, you’ll get nothing.

Remember, they’re not your friends. Their job, quite simply, is to get away with paying you as little as possible; and if you sign, you may forfeit your rights to further compensation. Never sign anything without talking to an attorney. You are always within your rights to simply direct them to your injury lawyer.
