A collision with a large commercial truck, such as an 18-wheeler, can be terrifying and lead to traumatic injuries — or fatalities in a worst-case situation. The tragedy of many commercial trucking accidents is that they could be prevented if truck drivers and trucking companies followed rules and regulations.
Trucking accidents often can be attributed to negligence on the part of a truck driver who was speeding, driving recklessly, or had spent more hours behind the wheel than regulations allow. Negligence on the part of a trucking company also may be a factor if the company encouraged a driver to bend the rules, failed to check a driver’s background, or failed to properly maintain its truck.
Evidence in truck accidents often may be destroyed before a crash victim has a chance to fully investigate. That’s one reason why it’s crucial to obtain the representation of an experienced Birmingham truck accident lawyer right away if you’ve been injured in a collision with a truck. A skilled lawyer can move quickly to preserve evidence, which in turn preserves your ability to pursue a claim for compensation of your injuries and losses.
The attorneys at Belt & Bruner, P.C. have extensive experience with truck accident cases, including obtaining multi-million dollar recoveries on behalf of injured victims. Contact us today at to schedule your free consultation and learn how we can help with your case.
Motorcycles represent freedom to many riders. They relish the thrill of hitting the open road on the back of a bike with the wind in their faces and the countryside surrounding them. However, motorcycle riders are at risk for serious or fatal injuries when they collide with a bigger, heavier passenger vehicle or commercial truck.
With little protection in a crash, a motorcycle rider may suffer extensive injuries that can include broken bones, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injuries. Any of these types of injuries can result in long-term pain and disability — and significant costs — for a motorcycle rider.
When your injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, you may have options for getting your medical bills paid and recovering compensation for other types of losses, including lost income, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of quality of life. The Birmingham motorcycle accident lawyers at Belt & Bruner, P.C. can discuss your legal options and help you pursue the maximum available compensation for your injuries and losses.

Alabama law provides for a high degree of accountability for bars, liquor stores, alcohol servers, and convenience stores that provide alcohol to someone who then causes injury to another person. The classic situation is a bar that overserves a patron who then attempts to drive and causes a crash. There are many other scenarios in which an alcohol seller or server may be liable for injuries caused by an intoxicated person, not necessarily just car accidents.
If you’ve sustained injuries in an accident caused by someone who was intoxicated, you may have a case against the person or establishment that provided the alcohol. In many cases, the identity of the bar or establishment that illegally provided the alcohol is not immediately known and requires professional investigative tactics.
The Birmingham alcohol accident lawyers at Belt & Bruner, P.C. have thorough knowledge of Alabama alcohol laws, also known as dram shop laws, and can explain your legal options and aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf.

When you lose a loved one to an accident, your life is never the same again. The grief and pain can be especially difficult when the loss of your family member was caused by negligence. In Alabama, you can pursue a wrongful death case against the negligent party who caused your loss.

What this means is that you can seek compensation that is intended to punish careless people and companies and deter future wrongful conduct.
