When Should You File a Personal Injury Claim?

After an accident or injury, you may be uncertain whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim. Generally speaking, if someone else was at fault for the incident, you likely have a case. Note that the “someone else” does not have to be another person; a company, property owner, manufacturer, or another entity could be liable for your injuries.

To determine whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim, ask yourself the following:

  • Did another person or party have an expressed or implied responsibility to act reasonably and avoid causing you injury or harm?
  • Did the other person or party fail to uphold this responsibility, either by acting negligently, carelessly, recklessly, or wrongfully?
  • Were you injured as a result of the other person or party’s negligent, careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct?
  • Did you sustain specific measurable damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering related to your injury?

Recoverable Damages in Personal Injury Claims

The purpose of filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit is to recover financial compensation for damages you have suffered as a result of the accident and/or your injuries. Because every case is different, the exact damages you may be able to recover, as well as the overall value of your claim, will depend on the many unique factors involved.

That being said, many personal injury plaintiffs seek compensation for the following damages:

  • All medical expenses related to the accident/injury
  • Projected future medical care costs
  • Lost income, wages, and/or employment benefits
  • Lost or reduced earning ability
  • Loss of expected future earnings due to disability or impairment
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress

You may also be entitled to recover for miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses, such as travel to and from medical appointments, home modifications to accommodate a disability, or in-home assistance and care.

In some cases, injured victims may also be entitled to punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages, which are meant to compensate the victim for specific losses, punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant. Typically, punitive damages are only available in cases involving egregious acts of negligence, willful or wanton misconduct, or intentional infliction of injury.

Car Crashes

If you or someone you love was recently involved in an automobile accident, and you believe someone else was at fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

Frequently asked Questions


Q: How much is my personal injury case worth?

A: Many people understandably want to know how much their case is worth, but it is impossible to determine the value of a claim without first reviewing the specific details involved. Numerous factors—such as the severity of your injuries, the cost of your medical bills, expenses related to property damage and repairs, your degree of liability (if any), the defendant’s available insurance coverage, and more—all play a role in the overall value of your claim. We recommend that you contact our personal injury lawyers at Morris Haynes Attorneys at Law and set up a free initial consultation. During this consultation, we can review the facts of your case and help you determine how much your claim could be worth.

Q: What is the statute of limitations on personal injury cases in Alabama”

A: In Alabama, you only have two years to sue a liable party for personal injury damages. This means that you must file your lawsuit within two years of the date you were injured (with few exceptions). This only applies to personal injury lawsuits, not insurance claims. In fact, your time to file an insurance claim may be even more limited, so it is important that you act quickly after an accident or injury so that you do not lose your right to recover compensation.

Q: Do I really need a personal injury lawyer?

A: The law does not require you to hire a personal injury attorney to pursue a claim, however, there are many advantages to working with an experienced legal team. Study after study has shown that people who hire lawyers for their personal injury cases tend to recover higher settlements in less time than those who try to handle their cases on their own. An attorney will know how to gather appropriate evidence and build a powerful case on your behalf. An attorney will also be able to negotiate with the insurance company for a fair settlement and, if necessary, represent your best interests at trial. Reach out to our team at Morris Haynes Attorneys at Law today to learn more./p>

Q: How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

A: Personal injury attorneys, including ours at Morris Haynes Attorneys at Law, provide legal services on a contingency fee basis. This means that their legal fees are contingent on them winning your case. If your attorney does not recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you do not owe anything. Instead, your personal injury lawyer will recover fees via a percentage of your total recovery. The maximum amount your attorney can recover is set by state law, but it typically cannot exceed 33.33 percent. For more information on costs and fee structures, please contact Morris Haynes Attorneys at Law today.
