Personal Injury Law & Cases in Alabama
Under the law, if you are injured due to the negligent actions or omissions of another person or entity, you have the right to bring a personal injury claim or lawsuit against them. This is based on the theory that the other party owed you a reasonable duty of care that they breached which led to your injuries and damages. You will have to demonstrate that their negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or other wrongdoing directly resulted in your harm.
Once the above is demonstrated through evidence, you may be entitled to the following damages based on the specifics of your case:
- All of your past and future predicted medical expenses
- Your past and future predicted loss of wages/income
- Your pain and suffering
- Any damage to your personal property, such as your vehicle
- Mental or emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Quantifying all of your damages can be a difficult and complex issue. For example, how does one put a number on the pain and suffering endured in the wake of serious injuries? How does one quantify future medical expenses? This can be especially complex in cases involving catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord damage or brain damage where the individual may require medical care and personal assistance for life. Because of all the legal requirements such as proving fault and quantifying damages, you need the legal representation of a knowledgeable attorney who knows how to put claims together, how to deal with insurance companies trying to deny or reduce those claims, and how to negotiate or litigate for maximum compensation.
