Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions
Should I File a Police Report?
You should definitely file a police report after an accident. This will serve as an objective third-party account of what happened in your accident. Such information will be vital for your insurance adjuster when calculating negligence and your possible settlement offer.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
While every client, case, and settlement is different, our car accident attorneys work hard to reach the maximum amount of compensation possible for each and every client. We will review your case in great detail to ensure we are seeking every recovery possible.
How Do I Prove Fault?
To have a successful car accident claim, you must be able to prove that the other party involved was 100 percent at fault for the accident and your subsequent injuries. In the state of Alabama, if a jury determines that you contributed to the accident, you will not be able to recover damages.
Proving fault after a car accident is not always easy and the other party’s insurance company will likely try everything they can to escape liability. That’s where our Alabama car accident lawyers come in. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, please give our office a call. Our attorneys can review your case and help you collect the necessary evidence to build the strongest case possible, giving you the best chance of recovering maximum compensation.
How Long Will It Take for My Case to Settle?
The timeline of a case varies from client to client. While some cases can take years to reach a settlement, our lawyers understand our clients don’t have that kind of time to wait for a settlement they need right now. That’s why we work hard to reach a settlement our clients are satisfied with as quickly as possible.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
A trial can significantly extend the timeline of your case. We know our clients need the money from their settlements right away and don’t have time for a lengthy trial process. That’s why we try to settle all of our clients’ car accident claims outside of court. However, if the need for a trial arises, our trial-practiced attorneys will defend your rights in the court of law with the full extent of our power.
Do I Need to Hire an Attorney?
An attorney will make the complex legal process of your car accident case much easier for you and your family. Retaining the services of an experienced Alabama car accident lawyer will also give you the best chance at receiving the maximum amount of compensation possible.
What Losses Can I Recover?
Compensation from a car accident claim is meant to help cover accident-related expenses. If you’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to recover the following with the help of an Alabama car accident lawyer:
- Past and future medical expenses.
- Property damage.
- Loss of consortium.
- And more.
