Cases We Handle
Some types of car accident cases we handle are:
Someone can be at fault for a car accident by violating a traffic law. Our lawyers understand traffic laws. We can evaluate violations that may have occurred.
Even if a party didn’t violate a traffic law, negligence may still have occurred. We look at all possible causes of fault and ways to claim compensation.
Local roads, city streets, highways and freeways
Car accidents occur on local roads, city streets, highways and freeways. We handle cases throughout the Anniston area.
Collisions in intersections
A collision in an intersection may result from an improper turn or disobeying a stop sign or light. Let us investigate for you.
Crossing the center line
Loss of vehicle control, inattention or improper passing may result in an accident where a vehicle crosses the center line. We gather the evidence of what happened.
Sideswipe, blind spot accidents
Lane changes are a leading cause of car accidents. A driver must have a clear path before changing lanes of travel. Our team works to prove your right to compensation.
Speeding, too fast for conditions
Drivers must follow posted speed limits. They must consider traffic, weather, road conditions and other hazards. We investigate how speed may have played a role in the accident.
Tailgating, following too closely
Tailgating and following too closely may result in a preventable accident. Not leaving enough room can put a party at fault in a collision.
Defective vehicle, vehicle design, manufacturing
If a vehicle issue contributes to a car accident, we verify the cause and how a victim may receive justice.
Distracted driving, texting, cell phone use
A driver who diverts their attention from the road significantly increases the odds of a crash. Texting and cell phone use are two examples of distracted driving that may result in legal liability.
Drunk driving, DUI
Drunk driving/DUI is reckless behavior that can cause senseless harm to victims. Let us work to hold offenders accountable and secure your compensation.
If another party is at fault for the accident, we will fight for the compensation you deserve. If you’re unsure what caused the accident, or if there are questions of fault, we invite you to consult with our team. We can investigate and evaluate your situation.
