Automobile Accident Questions

Serving clients in Gadsden and Nearby Areas of Alabama

After a devastating auto accident, you and your family members no doubt have a lot of questions about what went wrong and how to make things right. The Shelnutt Law Firm has all of the answers you need.

How much is my auto accident worth?

Each accident claim is very different and depends on the details of the case. While our attorney team will not be able to give you a hard dollar amount during your free consultation, we will be able to give you an idea of what to expect after a thorough review of the information. To help us create an estimate that is accurate, we’ll need any and all paperwork and documentation you have on the effects of the accident, including medical records, accident details, witness information, and more.

Our investigators can help with the collection process and let you know what needs to be done. Our goal is to make it as easy for you as possible in order to let you focus on your family. When deciding how much your accident may be worth, we work with financial experts to fully understand how the accident affected your life.

What damages am I entitled to?

The damages you may be eligible to receive will depend on the extent of your injuries and other factors of the accident. From property damage to medical expenses and lost income, we’ll work hard to get you every dollar you deserve. Cases involving wrongful death may be entitled to additional damages as a result of the emotional toll the loss of a loved one can take.

How is negligence proven in accident cases?

The process begins with a thorough review of the accident details. Our legal team will lead a full investigation and attempt to identify signs of negligence. The goal is to prove that negligence caused the accident and that the accident resulted in severe and costly injuries. We’ll only recommend you file a personal injury claim if we feel negligence can be proven and your case can be won.

What can an attorney do for me?

No one likes to think about money at a time when your loved one is in pain. Unfortunately, it is a necessary evil. In order to ensure your loved one gets the best medical care possible, you’ll need to think about how to meet medical expenses.

It’s difficult to think of money at a time like this, especially when your loved one needs your positive words and support.
