There are several elements in the Alabama negligence car accident case that must be met in order to prove liability and then recover damages. The first element needed is duty, which means that the person who hit you or caused the accident has a duty to use reasonable care when in traveling on the highways in Alabama.
The second element needed for this type of case is a breach of that duty mentioned above. This means that if that person has a duty not to injure you by unreasonable conduct and the person breached that duty by speeding, failing to pay attention, drunk driving, or taking another action that would breach that duty, this element has been met.
The third element of negligence in a car accident is causation which means that the breach of duty by that person must have caused the injury that you are complaining of. This simply means that in your Alabama truck wreck accident, the breach of duty i.e. drunk driving must have been the cause of the accident and resulted in the injury you possess now.
The final element needed to determine if your injury falls under this type of accident is proving the damages. Generally, the law in Alabama requires that you prove a physical injury prior to recovering emotional or payment suffering. We will review the case and possibly call on an expert to go over your medical records to find out the extent of your injuries. Our main concern is your health and we want to make sure you recover and get better. Once this has happened, our attorneys will fully evaluate the extent of the injuries and damages of your case.
Personal injury is for the most part concerned with disputes between private parties due to an injury suffered by an individual based on the negligence of the individual that caused the injury. This type of negligence occurs when an individual fails to exercise a reasonable duty of care in performing a particular activity. Personal injuries include: product liability, dangerous and defective pharmaceuticals, medical malpractice, auto accidents, gun shots, assaults, and premises liability (slip and fall accidents). Unfortunately, some insurance companies have refused to pay legitimate claims for personal injury accidents. If you are involved in a dispute with an insurance company for wrongfully withholding payment, there is a possibility that Kreps Law Firm, LLC can sue them on your behalf.

DEALING WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY
It is likely that you have been contacted by an insurance company representative on your Alabama accident or personal injury case. Our advice is to contact an attorney as soon as the accident occurs. By doing so, you have the best chance of doing everything possible to be sure that your case is handled in the best manner. The insurance company is not your friend in the case. The insurance company operates with only one goal in mind and that is to save money and avoid paying out clients the monies they deserve. If they can settle your claim with you for much less than it is worth on the front end, they will have saved the insurance company thousands of dollars. This is why you need an Alabama attorney to look and evaluate your case. The attorney will determine the proper procedures that need to be taken in order to give you the best result possible. Call our office prior to speaking with the insurance company. There are specific instances that will have a legal effect on your case. These are occurrences that you may not recognize immediately.

THE CAR ACCIDENT LITIGATION PROCESS IN GENERAL
For every car accident and personal injury case that our firm accepts, we come up with a plan up front to give you the best possible chance at a significant recovery. The car accident litigation process at this time in Alabama is usually a very lengthy process if a lawsuit has to be filed. We will collect all your medical records, medical bills, and much information from you and then we'll evaluate the case and wait for your treatment to end before proceeding with any type of settlement. If your case can be settled for a fair value and you agree to accept that settlement, then we will assist in handling that for you. However, in the event the insurance company determines that your injuries are not valid or that the liability issue is still undecided, we will file a lawsuit in the county where the accident occurred and we will litigate the case for you. After filing a lawsuit, the defendant will have 30 days to file an answer. If the defendant does not file an answer in your Alabama personal injury and truck wreck accident lawsuit, we will then file a motion to default judgment.
