The Personal Injury Claims Process

Investigating the Accident

We 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 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

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, we 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

The value of a Birmingham 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 Birmingham accident attorney 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 Settlement

Once we’ve 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 case is worth in hopes you’ll accept quickly. Our team of Birmingham injury attorneys 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

With our years of experience in the courtroom, 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.
