Personal Injury & Accident Injury

Every day, thousands of people are hurt in auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, playground accidents, faulty equipment accidents, accidents related to alcohol or drugs, nursing home accidents, and much more. Some of these injuries are life altering, requiring years of physical therapy, painful surgeries, and much more. Do not suffer in silence, even if you have adequate insurance; let us help you get what you are due for your pain and suffering.

We specialize in many different personal injury and accident injury cases, and have spent the last twenty-plus years working hard to represent each client as an individual and never a case number or paycheck. We know that you are suffering every day, through your own pain or the pain of someone that you care about. Our staff of experience professionals’ goal is to ensure that you receive what the insurance company for the person, business, or entity owes you.

What Causes These Accidents?

Some injuries are unavoidable, such as those accidents related to someone else’s negligence or lack of caution. Others, we might be able to avoid, but are not entirely to blame for, such as those due to slip and fall accidents. We understand that any injury can be painful, and most require medication, therapy, surgery, ongoing physician visits, and much more, depending on the severity of the injury.

No matter what caused your accident, whether it was entirely the fault of someone else or at least partially due to another’s recklessness or carelessness, we are very familiar with personal injury and accident injury laws in Alabama and Georgia and are ready to help you get what you deserve. Our practice has been working with hurt clients for more than twenty years, so we understand your pain and are dedicated to helping you heal.

How We Work

It is our goal to keep you out of the courtroom if at all possible, saving you time and money in the long run. Major insurance companies are paid hourly, so they will be striving to keep you involved in the legal process as long as possible. It is our goal to settle outside the courtroom, and our settlement tactics and methods are unique and effective for individuals, whether they are facing another individual, a big business, or even the government.
