Why Personal Injury Lawyers Won’t Help You Get Your Car Repaired

Personal injury law firms generally only help recover money for bodily injury - and unfortunately that does not include the body of your car.

What should I do if I get in a car accident in Alabama?

Accidents can be complicated and dangerous. In the immediate aftermath, it's important to get to safety and seek help. Request immediate medical attention if necessary and notify law enforcement. The police can help you write an official report, which will almost definitely come in handy if you pursue a personal injury settlement.

If you're able, you might want to collect photo evidence of the crash, road conditions, and traffic signs, as well as witness statements and other relevant documents.

What is the average settlement for a car accident in Alabama?

Car accident settlements tend to vary widely, since some factors may be out of your control—such as how large the auto insurance policy is of the car that hit you. While 75% of personal injury cases settle for less than $30,000, some car accident claims may reach the millions. We'll help you value your personal injury claim and case based on your medical expenses and the facts of the incident.

Is hiring a car accident lawyer in Alabama necessary?

No, it is not strictly necessary to hire an Alabama car accident lawyer. However, many car accidents can result in significant property damage and medical bills and expenses. This may entitle you to a cash settlement to compensate you for lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

In these cases, an experienced team of Alabama auto accident attorneys from Mighty Law can streamline the claims process and maximize your chance of receiving fair support—so that you can focus on your recovery.

Should I communicate with the car insurance company if they reach out to me after the accident?

It's advisable that you inform your own insurance company about your involvement in an automobile accident, but avoid speaking with the insurance company's adjuster representing the other party. If they contact you, it's best to refrain from making any comments and instead, refer to them your personal injury attorney, if you have one. Alabama car accident lawyers can communicate with insurance companies on your behalf as they possess years of experience in negotiating and ensuring that accident victims receive their rightful compensation.

Should I be the one to initiate a car accident lawsuit?

It could be a viable option for you. As part of their legal services, an experienced car accident attorney can present you with several legal avenues to explore. In situations where the insurance company refuses to provide a just settlement, a lawsuit may be the most effective means of obtaining the financial compensation you deserve.

How much do Mighty Law's Alabama car accident lawyers cost?

Cases that settle directly come with a pre-suit fee of 30% or less of the final settlement amount. Cases that go to trial have a post-suit fee of 36% or less. You won't hear a lot of personal injury law firms talk about their pricing structure—but at Mighty Law, we're all about transparency.

Plus: we're here to help take away your post-accident financial stress—not add to it—so we keep our fees at 10% less than the industry average. And as always, you only pay if you win.

What does the process look like to get started filing my claim and working with Mighty Law?

We kick off the process with a free initial screening, where we learn more about your car accident case. If we can help, you'll sign a retainer agreement which will specify that you only have to pay if you win your case.

Now, as a car accident victim, you'll be represented by a Mighty Law Alabama car accident lawyer. You'll work together with a case manager from our law firm to gather documentation. At the same time, we'll help you find and pay for medical treatment related to your automobile accident.

Once all of the necessary paperwork is on file, we'll assemble your personal injury claim and file a demand letter with the insurance company. Most cases reach a settlement after the demand process, but if yours doesn't, we'll help you file a lawsuit. Filing a lawsuit has its own process that your Mighty Law car accident attorney will be responsible for.

How long will it take to investigate a car accident claim in Alabama?

From the moment we begin working together, we'll do our best to help you get the support you deserve as soon as possible. In the background, we'll be collecting the police report from your accident and any other video or witness evidence from the scene.

We'll be monitoring your medical treatment and collecting medical treatment records once your treatment is complete, and we'll file a notice with any involved insurance companies. This process can take a few weeks, but we'll make it go as quickly—and as easily—as possible.

What happens once my car accident case is settled?

If you've agreed to a settlement, your Mighty Law Alabama car crash attorney will give you a “settlement statement” which shows the total (or gross) settlement amount, and the bills of anyone who helped you during your case that you deferred payment to until the settlement was reached.

This typically includes your lawyer, doctors, and finance companies, if you took out a settlement advance. You'll then receive everything that's left (the net amount) after these bills are paid.
