If you have been injured in an accident in the state of Alabama, you have two years to file a personal injury claim. The Alabama personal injury statute of limitations can be extended in cases where the victim is a minor or incompetent, or in cases where a medical error results in a delayed injury. However, it is always best to contact our Gadsden injury lawyers as soon as possible after an accident to help ensure you do not miss your opportunity to file suit.
Why Taking Legal Action Makes Sense
You can often settle with insurance after an accident in Alabama, but this method typically results in inadequate compensation. Working with the accident lawyers at the Shelnutt Law Firm is the best way to make sure you receive full compensation for all of your damages. Insurance companies are beholden to investors and have a long history of cheating victims of serious injury out of fair compensation. Our Gadsden injury lawyers are beholden to no one but our clients – and we fight tooth and nail to secure every penny each of them is due.
When you are injured in any type of accident, insurance companies may try to move you towards a settlement very quickly. This is because they know your chances of securing fair compensation are much higher when you work with an attorney and accepting their offer prohibits you from taking legal action. Before you accept a settlement offer, talk to our injury lawyers to learn what your case is really worth and how we can help you get every penny you are due.
