There are quite a few 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 has a duty to use a reasonable care when traveling on the highways of the state of Alabama.
The second element that must be met is a breach of that duty. What this means is 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 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 caused your injury or injuries.
The last element that you have to prove is damages. Damages that might include: personal injury damages, property damages, and payment suffering or emotional distress damages. 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 the information and possibly get an expert involved to review your medical records to determine the exact extent or your injuries. The first thing that you need to realize is that the main concern of the case will be for you to become well and healed physically from a medical standpoint.

POSSIBLE RECOVERIES DEALING WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY
Personal injury is predominately concerned with disputes between private parties dealing with an injury suffered by an individual based on the negligence of the individual that caused the injury. This particular form of negligence occurs when an individual fails to exercise reasonable duty of care when performing a particular activity. Personal injuries may include: product liability, dangerous and defective pharmaceuticals, medical malpractice, auto accidents, gun shots, assaults, and premises liability (slip and fall accidents).
Unfortunately, some insurance companies have been known to refuse to pay legitimate claims for personal injury accidents. If you are in a dispute with an insurance company for wrongfully withholding payment, it is possible that Kreps Law Firm, LLC can sue the insurance company on your behalf. Contact Kreps Law Firm, LLC (866) 348-2889 or CLICK HERE.
The law provides a remedy for personal injury accidents by allowing the injured party to pursue a claim for compensation of damages, where the injured party may be “made whole.” If you (or someone you love) have sustained personal injuries due to another’s negligence, call Kreps Law Firm, LLC.
Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of injuries in the United States today. Injuries such as brain and spinal cord injuries, head injuries, broken backs, burns and amputations are all injuries which might be caused in an automobile accident. If you (or someone you know) have sustained a head injury, contact Kreps Law Firm, LLC to speak with an Alabama automobile accident or personal injury lawyer.
DEALING WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY
It is likely that you have been contacted by an insurance company representative on your Alabama accident or personal injury case. This depends on when the accident has occurred and how soon you will be contacting us after the accident. By promptly contacting us, you have the best chance of doing everything possible to be sure that your case is handled in the best manner.
Do not be mistaken into believing that the insurance company is your friend. The insurance company operates with one main goal in mind and that goal is to save money and avoid paying out clients. If they can settle your claim for much less than it is worth, they will have saved the insurance company thousands of dollars. This is why you need an Alabama attorney to look at and evaluate your case. Call us today at (866) 348-2889 or CLICK HERE to discuss your case.
THE CAR ACCIDENT LITIGATION PROCESS IN GENERAL
For each and every car accident and personal injury case that our firm accepts, we map out a plan upfront to give you the best possible chance at a significant recovery. The car accident litigation process in Alabama is usually a very extensive process, if a lawsuit has to be filed. We 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 you in handling that. However, in the event the insurance company determines that your injuries are not valid or that the liability issue is still undecided, we will file a lawsuit in the county where the accident occurred and we will 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 Alabama personal injury and truck wreck accident lawsuit, we will then file a motion for a 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 the trial.
