Auburn/Opelika Personal Injury Attorneys
Helping injury victims get the compensation they need and deserve
Every year there are over 100,000 traffic accidents in Alabama, causing tens of thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths. Most of these accidents could be avoided and are caused by speeding, drunk driving, distracted driving, and other types of negligence or recklessness while driving. Most of these accidents are car wrecks, and while semi-truck accidents account for only a small fraction of all collisions, the 18-wheelers are responsible for a large percentage of fatalities, due to the serious and deadly nature of highway tractor-trailer truck crashes. At Alsobrook & Agricola, our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers utilize effective negotiation techniques and tenacious litigation strategies to fight the insurance companies and help our clients get the compensation they deserve.
Skilled and experienced attorneys on your side in personal injury litigation and settlement negotiations
If you have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful misconduct of another, whether in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, or a slip and fall on unsafe or negligently maintained property, the law allows you to recover compensation for your injuries from the responsible party. Recoverable compensation includes “economic damages” such as present and future medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, and lost wages for time you missed from work or if you became disabled from working for the future. In addition, you can recover “noneconomic damages” such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of companionship.
Unfortunately, recovering the compensation that is due to you is not a simple matter. If an appropriate settlement cannot be reached with the insurance company, you may have to sue in court, and the burden falls on you to prove every element of the case to the jury’s satisfaction, including the defendant’s fault in causing the accident, the serious nature of your injuries, and a justification for the amount of compensation you are seeking. The defendant, meanwhile, is represented by a team of lawyers hired by the insurance company to deflect responsibility away from their insured and cast you as negligent in causing the accident. If the jury believes that your actions in any way caused or contributed to the accident, you can be denied any compensation whatsoever.
