Why You Need a Mobile, AL, Car Accident Lawyer

After being in a car accident, you may suffer injuries and vehicle damage, leaving you unsure how you’ll pay for medical treatment or repairs. Filing a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurer may not grant you enough compensation to cover your costs, which is why you need a trusted attorney with experience in cases involving car accidents and insurance companies. We can hold auto insurance companies accountable when it comes to providing adequate car insurance coverage, especially following a serious accident.  

At Jackson & Foster Law, we have over 40 years of experience handling these complex cases and providing the resources and support you need as you recover. Contact our legal team for assistance, and we’ll negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.

Alabama Car Accidents Are Common and Devastating

According to 2020 data [1], Alabama had a new car accident reported nearly every four minutes and accident injuries reported every 13 minutes. If you’re lucky enough to walk away from an accident without injury, your car may still have damage. Compensation from the at-fault driver’s auto insurer can help cover your losses.

Filing an Insurance Claim After an Accident

Once the police report from an accident is complete, you should file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. By law, Alabama drivers must hold a car insurance policy with $25,000 coverage for bodily injury, $50,000 coverage of all bodily injuries for any one accident, and $25,000 for property damage per accident. [2] 

The insurance company is likely hoping you’ll accept their first offer in hopes of bypassing negotiations. However, you can fight against inadequate compensation with the help of an experienced car accident attorney in Mobile. At Jackson & Foster Law, we handle car accidents with urgency.

Our team may examine the relevant insurance policy and negotiate with the insurer on your behalf. 

Additional Legal Action You Can Take

Some drivers don’t go further than filing their insurance claim. However, if you are in an accident where you incur personal or financial loss and are not at fault, Jackson & Foster Law can handle your case.

Alabama state law dictates statutes of limitations that give you a certain amount of time to file a car accident lawsuit. [3] You have two years to file a personal injury or wrongful death suit starting from the day of the accident.
