What Can You Expect with
Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys?

Care. Quality. Respect.

At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, our auto accident attorneys do more we do more than simply review your auto accident case.

At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, our approach to helping our many Alabama auto accident clients comes down to three simple words: care, quality, and respect. Your car accident injuries can have a huge impact on your life, so we do more than simply review your case; we make you a priority. We do this by taking the time to listen and understand the circumstances of your accident, the extent of your injuries, and how this single event has impacted your life and your livelihood.

And because no two car accidents are the same, our approach to your case—including our planning, investigation, and various strategies—is always as unique as you are. Still, our specialized car accident lawyers have handled every kind of car accidents case imaginable, so there are no case challenges that we won’t be able to resolve in your favor.

Why Hiring an Auto Accident Attorney is a Good Idea

Because of the way automotive insurance works, most car accident cases are fault-based in nature. This means that the at-fault party is almost always immediately represented by their insurance company and its lawyers, getting the jump on any risk management concerns that may arise. This is the primary reason that you need to hire your own car accident attorney to lookout for your interests.

If you find yourself the injured party through no fault of your own, you need an injury lawyer so that you don’t find yourself out there alone. Sure, you might be contacted by someone involved in the case, such as the other driver’s insurance company, who implies that they’re helping, but this is not so. As uncomfortable a concept as it is, if you or your insurance company is not paying for their services, the interests they’re looking out for are almost certainly not yours. They are most likely looking to uncover something to indicate that their client, the at-fault party, is not to blame.

You Need Your Own Attorney

Very simply, if the at-fault party—the person or persons responsible for your injuries and/or inconvenience—has the full weight of their insurance company and their attorneys behind them, why shouldn’t you be equally represented by your insurance company and an Alabama car accident attorney? Now, if you’re like most people, you’re not looking to become involved in an antagonistic, drawn out, and litigious case, or, for that matter, an exhausting claim process. Still, going into such a situation underrepresented and ill-prepared could be a recipe for disaster.

At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, we regularly see people who come to us after the fact, after they’ve already damaged their claim, all because they made the choice to go it alone, without the legal representation of a car accident lawyer. By this point, sadly, there’s very little that can be done. It would have been such a simple matter to arrange to have an experienced car accident attorney by their side.

Your Auto Accident Case: What You Should Look For

Here at Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, there are certain things we look for when tackling a car accident case. The law requires that all drivers must be careful with encountering others on the road. This is called the “duty of reasonable care.” When a driver is not appropriately careful, they are “breaching” the duty of care, and are thus considered negligent. To prevail for you, it’s our job to establish that the at-fault party was negligent.

As mentioned previously, the reason that the at-fault party’s insurance company wants to talk to you is to uncover evidence beneficial to the defendant’s case, and what’s good for them is almost certainly bad for you. Therefore, we advise you to not talk to the other party’s insurance company. At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, it’s our job to establish that the other guy is at fault, leaving you in the clear.

Are You the Victim of an Impaired or Distracted Driver?

The car accident lawyers at Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys are skilled at determining whether the driver who caused your accident was under the influence, distracted, or driving recklessly.

Different Types of Car Accidents

The world can be a very dangerous place, and nothing epitomizes danger more than our busy byways and highways. At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, we understand that the occasional car accident is simply unavoidable—the price of living in a mobile and fast-paced society. For this reason, we specialize in automotive accident cases and bring to the table the experience and expertise needed to deliver big results on behalf of our clients.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car wreck, we’re here to provide you with all the legal assistance you need in dealing with insurance companies and every other aspect of car accident claims. Your Birmingham car accident lawyers will begin by delving into the details of your accident. We’ll determine the extent of your injuries and ascertain how your accident has impacted your life and your livelihood. We’ll most likely begin by determining the type of accident you’ve experienced.

Intoxicated Driving Accidents

It’s a scary thought, but statistics show that we share the roads with impaired drivers more often than we realize. Needless to say, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs contributes greatly to the number of car wrecks that occur in the state of Alabama, not to mention throughout the nation. But impaired driving is not limited to just drunk drinking. Countless other drugs, including many over-the-counter medicines, also contribute to impaired driver accidents.

Speeding, Aggressive and/or Reckless Driving

The term “reckless”, regarding driving, calls to mind someone speeding, tailgating and endangering all those they happen to be sharing the road with, but this term encompasses much more. It’s also about aggressive driving like road rage. Aggressive driving is defined as operating an automobile in a hostile manner, making sudden and careless lane changes without signaling and failing to yield the right of way.

Distracted Driving Accidents

For as long as there’s been automobiles to drive, distracted driving has been a concern, but with the increasing number of technological innovations out there—including, of course, smartphones with texting and GPS devices—the problem has gotten much worse. The concerns of eating, drinking, and changing radio stations while driving has been eclipsed by the menace of texting. On average, over 330,000 accidents a year are caused by texting and driving.

Defective Vehicle Accidents

If you’re like most Americans, you depend on your vehicle daily, and because of this, you will most likely keep your car serviced and maintained regularly. Still every day, motorists everywhere experience accidents due to defective automotive products and parts. At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, the Birmingham car accident law firm, we have first-hand experience representing people who have suffered as the result of defective vehicle parts and holding those at fault responsible.

Dangerous Road Accidents

As Alabama’s vast infrastructure continues to age, deteriorating road surfaces and conditions will continue to be a contributing factor in automotive accidents. Poor road conditions, such as potholes, sinkholes, cracked or broken sections of road, not to mention poor or perplexing street signage, lead to increased car accidents and great chances of you or someone you care about being injured and needing an injury lawyer.

Head-On Collision

When a head-on collision happens to you or someone you love, the outcome is often devastating. With extensive legal knowledge and experience, Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys will utilize all internal and external resources to help strengthen your case against the liable party.

Sideswipe Collisions

Sideswipe accidents may sound relatively benign, but the result could mean serious damage to both the vehicle and its occupants. A sideswipe collision often occurs when a driver tries to avoid an impending crash or a driver absent mindedly switches lanes. While these are not the only causes of sideswipe collisions, there is always the potential for major damage to one or both parties involved. Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys can help you build a strong legal case against the offending party so that you can recover adequate compensation for your damages, such as personal injury, lost wages, damages to your property. Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys are the injury law firm you want to call!

Hit & Run

A hit and run accident is an extremely serious criminal offense. The outcome of a hit and run accident can be traumatic and typically requires immediate medical attention. If a distracted driver caused an accident and chose to flee the scene you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

Rear-End Collisions

Rear-end collisions are comprised of a complex mix of factors to determine liability, and the driver following behind is not always at fault. Many factors such as driving slowly, driving while intoxicated, stopping suddenly, and driving recklessly determine liability. Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys have the knowledge and experience required to navigate the complexity of rear-end collisions.


It’s important that you start a car accident claim, with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, soon after your accident as there are time limitations on how much time you have to file a claim. If you wish to discuss your accident with a car accident lawyer in Birmingham, AL, contact Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys now. If we handle your case, we work on a contingency fee basis and only get paid if you do.

Types of Injuries

Whether it is a high-speed interstate collision or a fender bender in stop and go traffic, all accidents can result in injuries caused for drivers and passengers alike. While some car crash victims may walk away from accidents with just minor scrapes and bruises, others may suffer serious injuries that are life threatening and require immediate medical treatment. The speed, weight, and momentum in car accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries affecting almost every part of the body. The most common types of auto accident injuries include:

  • Neck and Back Injuries. The back and neck are vulnerable to injury during an auto accident, which can lead to bulging or herniated discs, pulled muscles and ligaments, and whiplash.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries. Rollover accidents, head-on vehicle collisions, and other types of car, motorcycle, pedestrian, and truck accidents often can cause spinal cord injuries in vehicle accident injury victims. Some victims may experience partial or complete paralysis because of these injuries.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). While safety features such as seatbelts and airbags can help reduce the risk of a traumatic brain injury, the outcome is still far too common. When the extreme force of a car accident impacts the brain, one can be left with severe damage, swelling, and even hemorrhaging.
  • Burn Injuries. Many Alabama car accidents can lead to serious burns due to metal, steam, fire, or even dangerous chemicals. Car accident burn injuries often leave people in extreme pain and sometimes permanently disfigured.
  • Facial Injuries. Facial injuries are unfortunately a tragic outcome of many Alabama car accidents. These injuries are not only physically disfiguring, but they are also emotionally taxing, and even with reconstructive surgery can be difficult to recover from.
  • Loss of limbs. Though not as common as many of the other injuries, this disfiguring car accident injury creates a lifelong disability. Many people who suffer from traumatic amputation are left with the mental and physical anguish long after the car accident itself.


At Alabama Truck Accident Attorneys, we know that not all car crash injuries are obvious right away. In fact, some injuries may be internal and could go unnoticed for days or weeks after the accident, only to cause extreme pain and disability weeks later. That is why it is so important to seek medical treatment immediately after your accident, even if you do not think you were seriously injured.

These factors include:

  • The direct financial cost or out-of-pocket cost
  • The direct damages are the specific and general damages related to the accident, and they may include the following:
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of earning capacity
    • Property Loss
    • Medical Expenses
  • Pain and suffering, emotional damages, and other indirect damages are harder to predict because they do not have a monetary value assigned to them, making it more a difficult and subjective task. They include:
    • Pain and Suffering

    • Inability to conceive due to accident-related injuries
    • Loss of relationships
    • Loss of limbs or extremities
