Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Lawyer?

Most of the time, hiring a lawyer is going to benefit you, not only in the amount of money you recover but also in the amount of stress you experience. When you hire our firm, we go to work for you! We will deal with the insurance company, your medical providers, your employer, and any creditors. You focus on getting well and we will focus on the rest.

How much is my case worth?

This is a very common question and one that I can only answer by saying "it depends." The value of any case depends on so many variables. The extent of your injuries, medical bills, lost income, and out of pocket costs are a good starting point. However, there is no exact formula and no "legal yardstick" to measure someone's pain and suffering. For a detailed case evaluation, call us now.

What is a hospital lien?

In Alabama, hospitals can and often do file liens on the recovery that injured parties may receive from insurance companies. This even occurs in some instances when a person has health insurance. Sometimes, that is legal and sometimes it is not. If a hospital has filed a lien against you and your case, give us a call. We can help.

I am injured but don’t have health insurance. Can I still get treatment?

This is, unfortunately, a common occurrence. When someone without health insurance is injured it can be a scary time. You may not know how or where to seek treatment. In a lot of cases our firm can help you find doctors who are willing to defer payment so that you can receive the medical care you so desperately need. If this sounds familiar, then give us a call.

Can I get a rental car from the other insurance company?

The answer, in most cases, is yes. While your vehicle is being repaired and/or while the insurance company is investigating whether it is a total loss, you are generally entitled to a rental car. If you need help obtaining one, give us a call.
