How to Protect Your Legal Rights After Injured in an Accident
The aftermath of an automobile accident that results in injuries can feel daunting, while resulting in serious physical, mental and financial hardship. Victims often incur costly medical care and are left disabled and unable to work. Moreover, fighting with insurance companies and navigating the legal claims process on your own can be overwhelming, time consuming and frustrating. When you are in pain you need to focus on your health. Auto accident victims and their families deserve compensation when someone else is at fault for their injuries. Our attorneys navigate the complicated claims and legal systems so that our clients do not have to, with the goal of obtaining the compensation to which they are entitled under the law.
In most car accident cases, a person injured must seek financial compensation from an insurance carrier. Insurance company adjusters handle a high volume of car accident claims, and usually have years of experience and, of course, the insurance company has extensive financial resources. They also have well-established tactics in their arsenal to deny or underpay legitimate claims from victims who have suffered serious injuries. The goal of the insurance company is to pay you nothing, or as little money as possible, even if you need additional medical treatment. In order to do so, they commonly employ tactics to exploit claimants’ unfamiliarity with the claims and legal processes. Employing an experienced Montlick & Associates attorney on your side can be a critical step to obtaining badly-needed compensation for your injuries. Insurance industry research has shown that plaintiffs who retain attorneys statistically recover significantly more compensation than underrepresented ones.

WARNING: Act Now to Preserve You or Your Family Member’s Legal Rights – Critical Deadlines Apply When Pursuing a Claim
In order to avoid potentially devastating consequences to your case, it is important to act promptly to secure your legal rights by contacting our attorneys early. Generally, the Alabama Statute of Limitations requires that you settle your case or file a lawsuit within two years from the date of your accident in order to preserve your legal right to compensation. However, there are many exceptions to this rule that can shorten or lengthen this deadline. For example, if a city, county state or other government entity is involved, there are shorter notification requirements to comply with in order to preserve your recovery, in addition to the statute of limitations. Additionally, these legal doctrines and rules can be ambiguous or subject to narrow exceptions depending on the specific law and facts, so you should seek immediate legal advice to find out which rules may apply to your potential case. Only an experienced attorney who carefully analyzes the facts of your situation can advise you of your obligations and the applicable deadlines in your case. Failure to comply with any critical deadline will result in permanent bar to your right to compensation.
In addition to legal deadlines, there are other reasons not to delay. For example, most auto insurance policies contain their own contractual notification deadlines that, if allowed to lapse, can result in a denial of coverage. Additionally, witnesses can eventually forget what happened, and important evidence, such as items at the scene or video footage, can also disappear. Our attorneys diligently work to comply with applicable legal and insurance requirements, gather evidence and interview important witnesses when appropriate.
Act fast to preserve your legal rights! Don’t let a legal deadline bar you from a possible recovery.

What Damages Can I Obtain for Auto Accident Injuries in Alabama?
Prospective clients frequently ask us at the beginning of their case about the value of their injury claim. As a general rule, individuals injured in a motor vehicle collision can seek compensation for both their tangible losses, such as medical bills and lost wages, and intangible ones, such as pain and suffering. The plaintiff must also prove a causal link between the accident caused by the defendant and the injuries suffered At the outset of a case, the precise value of a claim cannot be predicted accurately until we have determined the strength of liability, the amount of insurance coverage available, we know the nature and extent of the injury as well as prognosis, and all evidence has been assembled and reviewed.
Our attorneys thoroughly explore and pursue all types of damages that our clients are entitled to under Alabama law based on the relevant facts and circumstances of the case. While each case is unique, some of the types of damages that might be available if you are injured in a car accident claim include:
- Costs of hospitalization, treatment, rehabilitation, procedures and any other medical expenses
- Property damage (e.g. vehicle repair costs, diminished value)
- Loss of earnings and decreased earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Diminished enjoyment of life experiences
- Loss of companionship of a spouse
- Punitive damages depending on the egregiousness of the defendant’s conduct.
If you tragically suffered the loss of a family member in an automobile accident because of a negligent driver, manufacturer of a defective vehicle, substandard vehicle repair facility, or other negligent or liable parties, our attorneys pursue wrongful death damages for our clients. We analyze the specific case facts to assess the proper plaintiffs, or parties, to file or bring the claim, the types of damages that can be recovered, and other relevant laws and legal doctrines that may apply.
