More than 500,000 Americans take a trip to the emergency room each year to treat bicycle-related injuries. This is likely because bicyclists are afforded little to no protection in the event of an accident— especially when it involves a much larger motor vehicle.

Motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of injury and death nationwide, but many people forget how dangerous it is to drive until it is too late. A large percentage of car accidents are caused by drivers who are distracted, drunk or who are driving recklessly.
Many people underestimate the devastating nature of a dog bite or an animal attack. In many cases, however, the victims are small children. For this reason, it has become increasingly important for all pet owners to act responsibly, as well as to maintain a safe environment for anyone who will be in the vicinity of their potentially dangerous dog.
General Negligence Claims
Negligence is defined as any act in which a person or entity fails to uphold a specific duty of care, subsequently resulting in someone else's unnecessary harm. This could include any instance in which a person acts carelessly or recklessly, but not necessarily with the intention of causing serious bodily harm—as this would likely result in criminal charges.

Falls, electrocution and being struck by objects are among the most fatal types of accident, along with forklift accidents and trench collapse.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Anyone who gets behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or using drugs can-and should-be held accountable for causing a collision. Drinking and driving is an act of gross negligence, as it places the lives of everyone on the road at risk.
Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance bad faith refers to an area of the law in which a policyholder is afforded the opportunity to file a tort claim against an insurance company that has failed to act in good faith. This could include failing to conduct a proper investigation of a claim and/or failing to award an appropriate amount of compensation.
Nearly anyone who is injured on the job in Alabama is entitled to claim benefits through workers' compensation, which provides payment for medical treatment and replacement for lost wages. Workers' comp generally pays only two-thirds of the worker's normal wages, but it is a no-fault program so you do not have to prove that another person caused your injury.
Slip & Fall
Falls are some of the most dangerous types of accident, as they cause a large percentage of all traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries every year and can even be fatal. While many people will be fortunate enough to walk away from a slip and fall without any type of injury, others are not so lucky.
Pedestrian accidents reportedly kill more than 5,000 people a year, as well as injure about 70,000 more. Many times, these incidents are the direct result of a driver's negligence and/or unsafe driving practices. If this is the case, however, the victim will have the opportunity to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

Social Security Disability
If you suffer from an injury or illness which makes it impossible for you to work and which is expected to last for a year or to result in death, you are most likely qualified to claim benefits through Social Security Disability. More than a million SSD claims are denied every year, and many are not approved until some point in the appeals process.
How much is your case worth?
The goal of a personal injury or wrongful death claim is to provide the plaintiff with sufficient compensation to offset the significant economic impact of the accident. Your settlement or verdict should be large enough to restore you as nearly as possible to your pre-accident condition. This can include compensation for all of your medical expenses for hospitalization, surgery and rehabilitative care, as well as for your lost income and reduced earning power.
You can also claim damages for your pain, suffering, mental anguish and loss of ability to enjoy life. In the event that you are filing a claim for workers' compensation or Social Security Disability, the amount you could receive will be determined according to the guidelines of those programs. For example, workers' comp generally pays at a rate of two-thirds of the beneficiary's normal wages.
