There are many different types of personal injury accidents, including but not limited to the following areas:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Animal attacks
- Dangerous product accidents
- Medical Malpractice cases
The investigation generally depends on the nature of the accident. While law enforcement might investigate a car wreck, there may be no official government agency investigating something like a slip and fall accident. This is a big reason why you need an attorney who can investigate the accident on your behalf. Even if the police have conducted an investigation, the agency is not working exclusively for you. By retaining a lawyer, you will have an aggressive advocate who can reach out to experts and put experience and resources to work for you.
Many people contact an attorney for this exact reason - they were injured in an accident caused by someone else who claims they did nothing wrong. The responsible party might dispute your version of what happened. This can be frustrating, especially when someone falsely claims you caused the accident.
Don't personally respond to such accusations. Anything you say or do could potentially jeopardize your ability to recover compensation for your accident. Leave the legal battle to your lawyer. Your attorney can speak on your behalf with insurance companies, investigators and anyone else involved with your accident.
There is no set figure for most personal injury claims. Some accidents result in injury victims receiving a settlement or verdict worth hundreds of dollars. Other times, injury victims and their families receive millions.
Insurance companies, juries and others often take a variety of factors into account when determining how much to award injury victims and their families. Such factors can include:
- Severity of injury
- Cause of accident
- Reckless behavior
In most cases, the insurance company for the person, business or corporation that caused your accident through reckless or negligent behavior will compensate you for your accident. In addition, you may be able to obtain compensation from the person or business itself.
But being fairly compensated for your losses might not be easy. In some cases, you might have to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person, business or insurance company responsible for compensating you. In such cases, a jury would decide how much money to award you in the form of a verdict.
Dean Waite has years of experience fighting for the money accident victims rightfully deserve. Injury victims in Mobile and throughout Alabama routinely rely on Dean Waite to handle the most complex personal injury cases. He simply gets the job done right.
Yes. You do not have to accept whatever insurance companies or others responsible for compensating you offer you after your accident. You have the right to demand more money. That's why we urge you to contact us to discuss the details of any offer you receive after your accident.

We take into consideration future lost income, physical therapy, home modifications due to a permanent injury and other expenses. We take everything into consideration when negotiating on behalf of injury victims, including you.
Yes. Sometimes, filing a personal injury lawsuit is the best way for you to get the money you deserve for your accident-related expenses. But many other options besides filing a lawsuit exist. That's why we urge you to contact our law firm and schedule a free case evaluation. We can explain all the available options. We can then work with you to develop a solution that fits your specific legal situation. Don't delay. Contact us today.
