You Can Receive Financial Recovery in Your Traffic Crash Claim
It may be possible to secure a financial recovery based on the losses you incurred because of your accident, both tangible and intangible. Under Alabama personal injury law, you can hold the negligent driver responsible for hitting you head-on. Filing an insurance claim or suing that driver could allow you to receive a settlement or court award that includes:
- Injury treatment and related expenses, including future care needs
- Lost wages and other income, current and future
- Vehicle repair or replacement
- Other expenses
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
If your family member died from their collision injuries in Mobile, the estate’s representative can pursue punitive damages in a wrongful death suit. A member of the team at the Morris Bart law firm can explain your legal rights to you, and help you decide the best course of action.
When Should I Hire an Attorney for My Mobile Collision Case?
You should speak with a team member from the Morris Bart law office as soon as you are able after your collision. If your injuries are stable or you are beginning to recover from the accident physically, it is time to consider the steps you can take to recover financially.
You should not have to pay for the expenses and losses you suffered because of the other driver’s negligence.
Many of these cases settle through insurance negotiations, but if a just settlement with the insurance company can’t be reached, some of them require a civil trial. Under Ala. Code §6-2-38, victims generally have two years to sue the driver who caused their accident and injuries. Missing this deadline usually means losing the right to go to court, in most cases.
When Negligence Causes Head-On Collisions
Head-on crashes are among the most feared—and with good reason. They comprise only a small percentage of overall accidents, but they often lead to severe or even fatal injuries.
Head-on collisions are generally easy to prevent if drivers pay attention and are in their right minds. For this reason, these accidents often involve bad driving behaviors such as:
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Aggressive or reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving
To prove liability in these cases for our clients, our team must identify the action that caused the collision and collect evidence to show that this occurred because of negligence. Some causes of head-on collisions include:
- Failing to stay in a lane, crossing the centerline
- Passing on a two-lane highway or surface street when there is oncoming traffic
- Going the wrong way on a one-way road
- Going the wrong way on a divided highway, interstate, or freeway
- Entering via an exit ramp
- Crossing over the median of a divided roadway
At the Morris Bart law office in Mobile, Alabama, our team will make a preliminary assessment about the cause of your head-on collision during your complimentary consultation. We can help you file an insurance claim or civil lawsuit in a Mobile County court.
