Are You Within the Legal Time Limit to Seek Compensation?

A statute of limitations is a time limit a state gives individuals to file different kinds of cases. In Alabama, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is usually two years from the date of the accident.

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.
