Why Choose the Blackwell Law Firm?

We believe in continuously studying the law and trial practices. Because of our commitment to continued legal education, we are frequently asked to teach seminars to other attorneys on topics important to personal injury claims. These topics include trial practices, evidence, damages, expert witnesses, car and truck accidents, product recalls, defective medical devices, workers’ compensation trials, and health insurance issues. The personal injury attorneys at our Huntsville firm specialize in personal injury claims so that we can devote 100% of our time to being the best possible advocates for your injury claim.

Our philosophy is simple – we prepare every case for trial. While most cases settle prior to trial, preparation leads to better settlements as well as better trials. The best results are obtained when a personal injury attorney in the Huntsville area prepares his cases and aggressively seeks justice for his clients. We’ll settle your case when possible, but we are not afraid to go to trial.

Damages in a Huntsville Personal Injury Case

If another party’s negligence caused an injury, the injured person could receive damages for the losses they experienced due to the harm. These payments can include economic and non-economic compensation.

For example, economic damages are the person’s out-of-pocket expenses like medical costs, lost income, property damages, and any other expenses the injured person or their family incurred due to the injury. On the other hand, non-economic damages include payments for an injured person’s pain, disability, lost enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and other setbacks caused by the accident.

Punitive damages are available in rare cases. This type of compensation punishes the responsible party for reckless or malicious conduct. Courts rarely award punitive damages, but a Huntsville attorney could advise whether seeking punitive damages is appropriate in a specific injury case.

Time Frames for Injury Claims

An adult in Alabama typically has two years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit for negligence. In some situations, Alabama law may provide additional time. In any serious personal injury, you should consult a skilled Alabama attorney to learn your options. At our office, we understand personal injury claims and will provide the advice you need.

Children cannot file lawsuits until they are 19. So, the law allows someone who suffered an injury as a child two years from their 19th birthday to file a lawsuit seeking damages for the childhood injury. However, a parent or guardian could bring a claim on behalf of a child, which is often the best strategy, since cases are typically stronger when filed after an accident occurred.

Sometimes, a county or city government agency is the defendant in a personal injury lawsuit. For example, a local city or county government might be liable if their employee caused a car accident, medical malpractice occurred at a public hospital, or someone suffered injuries on government-owned property. When an injured person has a claim against a city in Alabama for injuries, Alabama Code §11-47-23 allows them only six months to notify the appropriate agency or lose their rights to sue. When an injured person has a claim against a county in Alabama for injuries, Alabama Code §11-12-8 allows them only one year to notify the appropriate agency or lose their rights to sue. To learn more about the deadlines for filing civil claims, reach out to a seasoned lawyer in Huntsville. With any potential claim, we want to discuss your options so you can make the best decisions.
