If you have been seriously injured due to an accident or the negligence of another person or company, I understand what you are going through. Most injury victims only want one thing; to get their life back in order. I talk to injury victims all of the time who say they are hesitant to “sue anyone” because they don’t want to be seen as opportunistic or a “gold digger”. The fact is, if you have been injured, you are already in a legal situation. You are not going to “sue” anyone. Whether you were hurt in an auto accident, at someone’s home, a private business or a public place you will recover compensation for your injuries from an insurance company.
If you have been hurt, it can be hard to know how to take the first step. If you’re missing time from work, or have medical invoices piling up, that can make a difficult situation even more stressful. The want to “put this all behind you” may lead you to consider an offer from the insurance company that is far less than you will need to make a full recovery. It costs you nothing to talk to an experienced accident and injury lawyer in Dothan. If you decide to hire me, you will not have to pay anything up front. I will handle your case and then get paid a percentage of the recovery I secure on your behalf. Call or email me today to arrange your free initial consultation.

However, the real difficulty in assigning value to a case is with some of the more fluid numbers that can be open to interpretation such as:
The most important thing to remember is that it’s free to talk to a lawyer before you sign anything. The insurance companies have experience and expertise on their side, and they will use it to pressure you into settling for less than your case is worth. If the insurance companies have lawyers protecting their rights, you should too. Call me today for a free initial consultation.
