Are You Within the Legal Time Limit to Seek Compensation?

What Losses Can Be Recovered?

A personal injury settlement usually includes a range of losses that resulted 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 health care, physical therapy, surgery, mobility equipment, ongoing treatment, medication, and more.

If your injury affected your ability to work, you’re entitled to compensation for lost wages. This may cover wages from all of the jobs you work, tips, commission, 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.

You may also be able to recover compensation for some of the emotional losses you’ve suffered, such as pain associated with the injury, emotional distress, loss of the ability to enjoy your hobbies, or loss of affection, companionship, or the ability to have children with your spouse.

No matter what you lost as a result of your accident-related injury, the 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Every state has a statute of limitations for injury claims. In Alabama, the time limit to file a lawsuit for a personal injury case is two years. The clock starts ticking on the date of the accident, unless it’s a wrongful death case, in which case it’s from the date of death. However, this rule can be complicated. It’s important to consult a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident to ensure that you don’t miss your window of opportunity to seek compensation.

Quite simply, a personal injury attorney is your best chance to secure maximum compensation for your injuries. The defendant will likely have attorneys who work for their insurance company, so it’s best for you to have qualified representation on your side to fight back.

Talking to the insurance company is a given when you’ve been hurt in a case like this. But when you answer their questions, be direct, straightforward, and honest. Never apologize for anything, never sign anything, and never editorialize. Stick to the exact facts of the case, and remember, you’re entitled to have legal representation present, or to direct them to your injury attorney.

Negligence in a legal sense means proving that someone else was at fault for what happened to you. It means demonstrating they had a duty of care toward you that they violated, that this failure led to the accident, and that the accident caused your injuries. It can, however, be deceptively tricky to prove, which is another reason why having an experienced Montgomery, AL, personal injury lawyer is important.

The most direct answer to this question is, “maybe.” For the most part, these kinds of cases don’t end up in court because both sides can usually come to an agreement before that happens. It’s actually in everyone’s best interest not to go to court. Sometimes, however, you hit a wall and a court case is necessary. When this happens you can be sure that the Thumbs Up Guys at our law offices will fight tooth and nail to defend your right to compensation.

There’s a wide range of compensatory damages you can collect. These include medical bills, lost wages, lost potential earnings in the future, damage to quality of life, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of consortium, loss of comfort, and sometimes in the very worst cases, punitive damages. The specific damages for your case will depend on the extent of your injuries. Call us or fill out our online form for a free case evaluation.

The trauma of an accident can lead to a rush of adrenaline, which can hide the initial pain of injuries. Even if an injury seems minor, or you don’t seem hurt at all, you may end up having a more significant injury that shows up hours or days later. Because of this, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately, no matter how you feel. It’s a good idea to contact a Montgomery, AL, personal injury lawyer as well, so you will be prepared if your injury ends up being more severe later and you need to file a claim for the compensation you deserve for your accident-related losses.

Because of the different circumstances and types of injuries in personal injury cases, it’s difficult to determine an average or estimated compensation amount without an investigation and the details of your unique situation. To really understand what your case is worth it’s best if you call those Thumbs Up Guys® at Floyd Hunter Injury Law to discuss the details of your case and learn more about the compensation you may be entitled to recover.

Even with a pre-existing condition, as long as you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you’re still entitled to compensation for your injuries from the at-fault party. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may have your compensation reduced to account for the pre-existing condition, or you may be entitled to more compensation if the injury aggravated the condition. These cases can be complex, so it’s best to contact those Thumbs Up Guys® at Floyd Hunter Injury Law for help in seeking the maximum compensation amount.

With the different factors that influence a personal injury case, it’s difficult to predict a timeline for a settlement. Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. Insurance companies prefer to settle cases quickly and cheaply, but if you can’t negotiate a settlement, you may need to pursue a court case. However, in the rare event you need to go to court, the Thumbs Up Guys® are expert trial lawyers and are prepared to advocate for you to ensure you seek the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries. Additionally, cases that have multiple at-fault parties, confusion about fault, or complex circumstances may take longer to settle. Rest assured that your Montgomery, AL, personal injury lawyer at Floyd Hunter Injury Law will keep you aware of what’s going on every step of the way.

Insurance companies want to settle cases quickly, so in most cases, you’ll receive a check shortly after accepting a settlement. Sometimes, an insurance company will wait until you provide a signed release, ensuring that you can’t reopen the claim or sue them in the future. If you accept an offer, your attorney at Floyd Hunter Injury Law will be sure to get you your check as soon as possible.

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 personal 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 that will treat you with the agreement that you’ll pay them from any possible settlement in the future.

Your personal injury case is a matter of law. 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 were negligent. In some cases, proving fault can be tricky, so it’s best to have an experienced attorney on your side, such as the personal injury attorneys at Floyd Hunter Injury Law.

No matter the circumstances of your accident or the extent of your injuries, you should consult a personal injury attorney immediately to have your case reviewed. Things can move pretty quickly after an accident, and how you handle the situation immediately after the accident can impact your case in the future. For example, the insurance company will speak with you soon after the accident and request a statement, which is recorded, and you may inadvertently say something that hurts your case. The insurance company may also request signatures on documentation and ask questions that catch you off guard.

An experienced personal injury attorney, such as the attorneys at Floyd Hunter Injury Law, can advise you on how to handle the situation and deal with the insurance company on your behalf. In addition, hiring a personal injury attorney soon after your accident can help with obtaining witness statements, conducting any necessary investigations, and preserving vital evidence for your case.

Don’t hesitate to call us to handle your case.
