Caution: Avoid Speaking with an Insurance Representative Before Speaking with an Attorney
One of the biggest mistakes people frequently make early on in their case is speaking with the insurance company before consulting with an attorney. Why is this a mistake? The insurance representative may record you and this statement can be used in ways you may have never anticipated later. For example, let’s say you told the representative in a statement that you had neck pain in the past. If you then sustained a neck injury in an accident that was not your fault, the insurance company may try and deny your claim by stating that your pain was pre-existing, and therefore, not its responsibility to compensate you. In reality, you may not have treated for neck pain for several years and now as a result of someone else’s negligence, that prior injury has been aggravated and legally can be considered a new injury, and you require expensive medical treatment that you did not need before this incident occurred. Something as simple as answering the question, “how are you today?” with “fine, how are you?” can be recorded, taken out of context, and used against you.
Additionally, the task of navigating unfamiliar insurance claim requirements or a complicated legal process and legal time deadlines and requirements on your own is daunting, especially if you are coping with your physical and emotional recovery. Just remember, the insurance representative is not your friend. No matter how nice the insurance adjuster is to you on the phone, the insurance company’s main objective is to close your case for as little money as possible, even if you are still injured and need future treatment. A friend would never put you in this horrible situation. If you settle your case in full by accepting an offer before you are completely healed or before you have had a chance to explore the extent of your injuries or disability, you can then be solely responsible for any new bills you incur with no recourse. We do not want this to happen to you. This is why we are here - to help you navigate the difficult legal process and maximize your right to compensation. Let us handle the legal aspect of your potential case, so you can have peace of mind and focus on what is important - healing and taking care of your family.

Act Now to Protect Your Legal Rights – Alabama Has Time Limits to Pursue Your Claim!
Waiting too long to pursue legal rights can have serious negative consequences on your potential case. Every state in the United States has a strict limit on the amount of time that can elapse between the date of an injury and the date a person must settle a claim or file a lawsuit. This strict deadline will be codified in a state’s statute of limitations and other laws or legal doctrines, as well as interpreted in the case law. Deadlines can vary depending on the state where your case is pursued and the type of claims that exist. These rules can be complicated, and there are exceptions and traps for the unwary. For example, if your case involves negligence by a city, county or state entity, shorter time limitations and special notice requirements can apply. Our lawyers advise prospective clients regarding such deadlines so that they understand the necessary steps that need to be taken in order to protect their claim.
Alabama Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases
Under Alabama law, while the general rule is that injury victims must file a lawsuit or settle their claim within two years after suffering injury, there are exceptions that can lengthen or shorten the deadline. WARNING: Failure to comply with the Alabama Statute of Limitations or other special requirements will result in the permanent loss of the right to pursue a legal claim for compensation. An experienced attorney who carefully analyzes the facts of your situation can advise you of your obligations and the applicable deadlines. Our lawyers assist our clients in determining the dates of any important deadlines that must be met and ensure that the necessary actions are taken in a timely fashion.
In addition to complying with legal time deadlines, delay in pursuing your legal rights can be costly in other ways. For example, witnesses can become difficult to locate or they can forget important facts and details that support your case. Physical evidence, such as debris from a damaged vehicle, tire marks at a car accident scene, or video footage also can be lost forever if not preserved correctly (physical evidence is more significant in some cases than others). There can also be important notification requirements in insurance policies, essential for being able to claim valuable coverage. Our lawyers work diligently to identify all potential defendants and relevant insurance coverage. We secure and preserve evidence, as appropriate, and satisfy legal and insurance requirements and deadlines. While navigating this process, we use our legal expertise, extensive experience, and diligent efforts to protect your rights and seek the fullest financial recovery available, which can include money for medical bills, lost earning capacity, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and more.

- Diminished earning capacity
- Decreased enjoyment of life experiences
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent or temporary disability
- Wrongful death damages
- Burial/funeral expenses
- Loss of consortium
