Through the years, we have learned that most wrecks are not “accidents,” but the predictable result of another driver’s carelessness. Drunk drivers and fatigued drivers have always been a danger. In recent years, texting has led to millions of wrecks. We investigate every wreck to determine the cause to present those facts to the insurance companies and courts.
Under certain facts, alcohol providers can also be held responsible for a drunk driver who causes an automobile wreck. Known as the Dram Shop Law (from the English term dram, meaning a serving of liquor), this statute gives victims of accidents caused by drunk drivers a claim against bars, convenience stores, liquor stores and other alcohol providers who serve a person who is already drunk or who serve a minor.
Our Montgomery, Alabama firm has been representing victims in automobile wrecks for over 30 years. If you, or a member of your family, has been seriously injured, possibly even killed, by the carelessness of another in a car accident, you deserve compensation for your loss.

Many automobile wrecks result in permanent disabilities. Some are unseen injuries such as permanent chronic pain. Others are visible injuries such as paralysis, quadriplegia, or cognitive impairment. In either case, it is important that any insurance settlement include a carefully crafted life care plan that allows for quality of life issues and the possibility of future surgeries or treatments.
