Birmingham Car Accidents

A car crash is always stressful, but if the wreck is serious, it can potentially lead to a lifetime of lingering and painful injuries. On top of this, insurance companies are only too willing to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve, making it more difficult to recover and return to your original quality of life.

At the Morgan & Morgan office in Birmingham, Alabama, our motor vehicle accident attorneys are ready to be the team in your corner against insurance companies. Whether through pretrial negotiations or in the courtroom, our attorneys will fight on your behalf to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Contact us to find out if we can help you after you’ve been in an automobile crash.

Alabama Auto Insurance Law

Mandatory liability insurance in Alabama was the following as of 2017:

  • $25,000 for bodily injury or death per person
  • $50,000 total for bodily injury or death per accident
  • $25,000 for property damage

This means there is a heavy cushion of protection when you get into a wreck, but the reality is that for the worst of your injuries or damages, this might not be enough. Alabama doesn’t have personal injury protection, and it also operates under the doctrine of contributory negligence, meaning if you are judged even slightly at fault for the crash, you can receive no monetary compensation.

You might require more due to astronomical healthcare expenses, significant vehicle damage or, worse, the permanent injury or even death of a loved one. These costs become even more daunting when your insurance or that of the negligent driver refuses to pay for your claim by citing a lack of evidence, an understatement of injury or treatment needs, or one of a variety of other methods.

Car Accident Cases We’ve Won

  • $1,050,000 verdict for our client after the defendant turned into her vehicle, requiring many expensive surgical procedures and a permanent intrathecal pump.
  • $950,000 settlement for a 50-year-old ironworker who was in a head-on collision and suffered a severe fracture of his right foot.
  • $900,000 verdict after a jury concluded that an insurance company acted in bad faith by refusing to properly cover the medical bills of a client who sustained a back injury in a crash.
  • $850,000 settlement for a 40-year-old man struck in a head-on collision and needing multiple surgeries to repair the fractures in his leg.
