Thousands of individuals are injured in accidents in Alabama each year as a result of negligence. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it is possible to obtain meaningful compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Here at Cox & Stansberry, we handle injury claims arising from a wide range of accidents, including:

  • Automobile accidents

  • Premises liability (slips, trips and falls)
  • Product liability
  • Truck accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Wrongful death

If you have been injured in an accident, you may have many concerns. How will I pay the doctor bills? When can I go back to work? How can I support myself and my family? Our legal team will work to address those concerns by offering you trusted advice and caring, efficient service.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

The value of your claim depends on factors such as the nature of the accident, the severity of your injuries and whether you played a role in the accident. If your claim is successful, you may be awarded compensation that includes economic and noneconomic damages.

  • Economic damages may cover your actual financial losses, including lost wages, past and future medical expenses, loss of earning capacity and property damage
  • Noneconomic damages may compensate you for intangible losses such as pain and suffering, long-term or short-term physical disabilities, or loss of enjoyment of life

If the other party acted willfully or with gross negligence, you may also be awarded punitive damages. Such damages are intended to punish the other party and to deter others from engaging in similar conduct.

Our firm handles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis which means, if we don’t recover for you, you won’t pay anything.
