Compassionate and Dedicated Legal Representation During Challenging Times
Accidents are commonplace. While sometimes they are just that – accidents. Other times, they result from another person’s or a company’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts. When this happens, the entity responsible can be liable for expenses and losses (damages) they caused the victim. For the injured party to receive compensation, they must prove that the other person or entity was at fault. Building and presenting a case can be a long, complicated process and not at all easy when recovering from injuries. In Alabama, accident victims have 2 years to bring personal injury lawsuits. Although that might seem like a while, considering everything that goes into these matters, the deadline can approach quickly. That is why it is crucial to get an attorney on the case right away.

Personal Injury Cases We Help With
A personal injury case arises when someone is harmed by the actions or inactions of another individual or a company. The injured party can seek compensation for damages they incurred as a result of the accident. Damages can include medical expenses, repair bills, lost wages, and pain/suffering, among other costs and losses. The purpose behind financial recovery is to provide the victim with resources to help them return to whole (or as close to whole as possible).
If you were injured in an accident, it’s important that you retain the services of an attorney who can competently guide you through your case. Pursuing fair compensation is vital not only for covering costs associated with your accident but also for holding the at-fault party responsible for their actions.

How Soon Should You Get a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Connect with an attorney as soon as possible after your accident. Again, you have two years to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party, and there’s much to do between the time you are injured to the time you seek compensation.
Generally, one of the first steps in a personal injury case is filing a claim with the other party’s insurance company. Before you can do this, though, you must have your arguments developed and supported. A lawyer can help by evaluating your case. They can gather, preserve, and analyze the evidence to build a compelling narrative about what happened. Your attorney can also present your demand letter to the insurance company and negotiate to seek a fair settlement.
The initial stages of a personal injury case can take a while, especially if the insurance carrier refuses to offer a just payout. If negotiations don’t work, your personal injury attorney may have to take the matter to court, arguing before a judge or jury to seek the compensation you need and deserve.
Our team at MATD is comprised of talented attorneys with skills in both negotiation and litigation. When you hire us for your case, we can pursue justice on your behalf inside and outside of the courtroom.
