The Law & Insurance Companies
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 of those is a duty. The person that hit you or caused the accident in your case must have a duty to use a reasonable care when traveling on the highways of the state of Alabama. This simply means that the person must use that level of care that is reasonable under the circumstances.
The second element that must be met is the breach of that duty. What this means if that person has a duty not to injure you by unreasonable conduct and the person breached that duty by failing to pay attention, speeding, driving drunk or taking any further action that would be a breach of that duty, then this element of this test is met.
The third element is causation. What this means is that the breach of the duty must have caused the injury that you are complaining of. This simply means that in your Alabama truck wreck accident the breach of the duty i.e. speeding must have been the cause of the accident which ultimately cause the injury that you were complaining of.
The last section in the element that you have to prove is damages. This could include personal injury damages, property damages, and payment suffering or emotional distress. Generally, the law in Alabama requires that you prove a physical injury prior to recovering emotional or payment suffering. We will order all of your medical records on your Alabama car accident case and review this thing and possibly get an expert involve on the front end to review your medical records to determine the exact extent or your injuries.

THE CAR ACCIDENT LITIGATION PROCESS IN GENERAL
For each and every car accident and personal injury that our firm accepts, we come up with a plan in the front end in order 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 on the front end 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 injures are not valid or that the liability issue is still undecided, we will file a lawsuit in the county where the action occurred and we'll litigate the case for you.
After filing a lawsuit, the defendant will then have 30 days to file an answer. If the defendant does not file an answer in your Birmingham Alabama personal injury and truck wreck accident lawsuit, we will then file a motion default judgment. However, if an answer was filed then that begins the litigation process through discovery and other necessary means of collecting information and then on to trial.
