A car accident is always a stressful time, but serious accidents can potentially lead to a lifetime of suffering and loss of life’s enjoyment, with insurance companies only too willing to prevent you from recovering the compensation you need to return to your original quality of life.
Our car accident attorneys in Mobile are ready to be the team that fights for your compensation against insurance companies, whether throughout the claims process or in court. Understanding many of the aspects of insurance law can be daunting, and you need a competent attorney to steward your claim to success.
Alabama Auto Insurance Law
Mandatory liability insurance in Alabama requires the following as of 2013:
- $25,000 for bodily injury or death per person;
- $50,000 total for bodily injury or death per accident; and
- $25,000 for property damage.
This means there is a heavy cushion of protection when you get into an accident, but the reality is for the worst of your injuries or damages, this might not be enough. Alabama doesn’t have personal injury protection, and they also operate under the doctrine of contributory negligence, meaning if you are judged even slightly at fault for the accident you can receive no monetary compensation.
You might require more due to astronomical healthcare expenses, significant vehicle damage, or worse, a permanent injury or even the death of a loved one. These costs become even more daunting when you or the negligent driver’s insurance refuses to pay for your claim by citing a lack of evidence, an understatement of injury and treatment needs, or one of a variety of other methods.
