Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys

Our Mobile Personal Injury Lawyers Help Clients Throughout Alabama

Arnold & Itkin advocates for those going through difficult times. Our Alabama accident lawyers know that injuries are as devastating as they are unexpected. We also know no one deserves to suffer from the financial burden, especially when someone else’s negligence caused them. While we know money doesn’t fix everything someone is suffering from, we also know that relieving financial stress is the most important step to the best recovery possible. So, we fight to earn the compensation that our clients deserve and need to get their lives back on track.

Over the years, we’ve been able to help victims of serious accidents recover billions of dollars in verdicts and settlements. We’ve earned these results by never settling for less than a client deserves and never accepting the dishonest tactics of negligent defendants. For our attorneys, the amount of money we’ve covered is much more than a figure—it represents the rebuilding of countless lives and the perseverance of justice.

Our Alabama Personal Injury Law Firm Helps After All Types of Accidents

All accidents are unique, but they all have one thing in common: someone could have prevented them from happening. We investigate accidents thoroughly and consider the needs of clients to pursue the compensation that they need rather than accepting the low initial offer from the other party.

Our Birmingham personal injury attorneys help with cases such as the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Work accidents
  • Boat accidents
  • Maritime law (i.e., Jones Act)
  • Industrial accidents
  • Medical and drug injuries
  • Wrongful death

When accidents like these happen, you need to move fast to get medical treatment and involve an attorney. Don't be fooled by an insurance adjuster that claims to be on your side. Don't rely on your employer to do the right thing. Involve a personal injury lawyer who will put your needs first and who has the wherewithal to protect your interests. At Arnold & Itkin, we know what it takes to win, even against the biggest opponents.

We Help Clients Suffering from Catastrophic Injuries

While many injuries last for the duration of treatment, many others are permanent and change a person’s entire life. Catastrophic injuries result in the loss of the ability to work, the need for continuous medical care, and other lifelong consequences. Our mission is to be advocates for those who have already lost so much.

Catastrophic injuries we help with include the following:

  • Amputations
  • Brain injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Spine injuries

What's the Statute of Limitations for an Alabama Personal Injury Case?

In Alabama, the standard time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the injury. This time limit is referred to as a statute of limitations, and if you wait too long to file suit, you could lose your right to seek compensation. There are some exceptions, however, such as injuries involving minors. If a child is injured, the 2-year statute of limitations would not start until they turned 18 years old.

If you have questions about what time limits may apply to your Alabama personal injury lawsuit, we welcome you to call our team for honest insight and guidance.

You Deserve Fair Compensation for Your Injury Claim

No two personal injury lawsuits are the same. What a person experiences in terms of physical trauma, emotional suffering, and financial losses will vary dramatically depending on the extent of their injuries and countless other factors. When our Birmingham injury attorneys take on a case, we get to know our client and their loved ones. We take the time to truly understand what they've gone through and what they will face in the coming months, years, and decades. We work with economists, medical professionals, and other experts to make sure we can accurately determine and prove the full and fair value of their case. This can make all the difference in rebuilding.

A successful personal injury lawsuit may include compensation for:

  • Medical treatment, including ongoing care, therapy, and more
  • Emotional trauma, such as pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lost earnings, including loss of future wages and benefits
  • Punitive damages meant to penalize the defendant for their wrongful conduct

How Is Pain & Suffering Calculated in Alabama?

Being involved in an accident or experiencing a catastrophic injury can cause a considerable amount of physical pain and emotional trauma. In Alabama, “pain and suffering” damages cover these. This is a particularly complex type of compensation because there is no true dollar amount that you can put on experiencing excruciating pain and the many emotions that come during and after a traumatic event. However, this is one of many ways that an at-fault party can be held accountable for helping an injured person recuperate and rebuild.

There is no fixed standard for pain and suffering compensation in Alabama. Instead, pain and suffering is calculated on a case-by-case basis. The severity and duration of trauma that a person experienced will play a significant role in determining pain and suffering damages.

Pain and suffering may cover any unpleasant emotion or feeling associated with an accident or injury:

  • Physical pain
  • Grief
  • Fear
  • Terror
  • Anxiety
  • Shock
  • Humiliation
  • Embarrassment

Recovering a fair settlement or award can go a long way in bringing peace of mind and stability to those who have experienced catastrophic injuries or the loss of a loved one. That is why we do what we do: to make a difference.

About Mobile, AL

Mobile was Alabama’s first city, founded in 1702 by French colonists and made the first capital of Louisiana. It also hosted the first Mardi Gras celebration in North America in 1703 and is considered the birthplace of America’s Mardi Gras. Mobile goes by the nicknames “The Port City,” “The City of Six Flags,” “The Azalea City,” and “The Gateway to the Gulf.” Mobile was incorporated on December 17, 1819. In addition to being home to the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta, which is the second-largest in the United States, Mobile is home to one of the biggest areas of wetlands on the planet, known as “America’s Amazon.” It is also the wettest city in the United States, receiving more than 60 inches of rain every year. Mobile sits at an elevation of just 10 feet above sea level.

The Port of Mobile, Alabama’s only deep-water port, is one of the largest in the United States. Located on the Mobile River where it meets Mobile Bay in the Gulf of Mexico, the port plays a crucial role in Mobile’s economy. The Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, a 1,650-acre area of land that includes more than 70 companies, is another main contributor to the city’s economy. Shipbuilding, manufacturing, aerospace, medicine, construction, and steel are several of the top industries in Mobile. The top employers in Mobile are the Mobile County Public School System, University of South Alabama, Infirmary Health Systems, Austal USA, and the City of Mobile.

For the people who live in and visit Mobile, there is plenty to do indoors and out. The city’s long history and rich culture offer something for everyone. Main attractions in the Mobile area include the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park, GulfQuest National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico, Mobile Carnival Museum, Dauphin Street, and the History Museum of Mobile. Visitors can also explore Fort Condé, which was initially built by the French in 1702, rebuilt after a flood in 1723, and then rebuilt again at 4/5 of the original size to include as many of the fort’s original features and buildings as possible.

Mobile serves as the seat of Mobile County and, as of July 2021, had a population of 184,952.
