The Personal Injury Claims Process in Birmingham, AL

Investigating the Accident

Our personal injury lawyers begin by investigating and collecting evidence of your injuries. Evidence may include photos and videos of the accident, police reports and witness statements, and medical records and bills to document the extent of your injuries. Our Birmingham injury attorneys may also recruit experts such as accident reconstructionists to establish how you were hurt and show how the accident caused your injuries.

Proving Negligence in a Birmingham Injury Case

The key to a successful personal injury claim is proving your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence. Using the evidence collected through our investigation of the accident, our Birmingham, AL personal injury lawyers will be able to show that the at-fault party had a duty of care to avoid causing you harm, how they breached their duty, and how that breach resulted in your injuries.

Calculating Damages in a Personal Injury Case

The value of a personal injury claim is affected by how much your injuries negatively affect your life. You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more.

Future damages such as anticipated medical expenses should also be included in your claim. A personal injury attorney in Birmingham, Alabama from Belt, Bruner, & Barnett P.C. will accurately assess your personal injury claim for the full amount of compensation you’re entitled to.

Negotiating a Personal Injury Settlement

Once our personal injury attorneys have determined your damages, we’ll get to work on your behalf to obtain a settlement. Frequently, insurance companies offer a lowball settlement far below what your personal injury case is worth in hopes you’ll accept quickly. Our team of Birmingham injury lawyers will handle negotiations with the insurance company and advocate for a fair settlement so you don’t accept any less than what you deserve.

Going to Court

Our Birmingham personal injury lawyers have more than 80+ years of combined experience in the courtroom, and we won’t hesitate to take your personal injury case to trial if a settlement can’t be reached. We know how to apply our knowledge of Alabama personal injury law to help the jury see your side of the case, hold negligent parties accountable for your injuries and damages, and obtain the maximum possible compensation.

We're nearby and ready to help.

Birmingham Personal Injury FAQs

What compensation can I receive in a personal injury case?

You could recover compensation for several damages depending on the specifics of your case and how badly you’re injured. Common damages include medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. Your attorney can help determine the damages you could be entitled to.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

In Alabama, the general deadline (known as the statute of limitations) to file a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of your injury. Contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury to ensure you meet this deadline. Missing the statute of limitations could bar you from collecting compensation.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer?

While Alabama law doesn’t require you to hire a lawyer, working with one can make your life much easier as you heal from your injuries. A personal injury lawyer can investigate your claim and fight to hold all the liable parties accountable while you rest easy.

How much does it cost to hire a Birmingham personal injury lawyer?

Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. Under this arrangement, you won’t pay anything upfront, and your attorney will only charge you if they recover compensation on your behalf.
