Seeking damages after a motor vehicle accident

You begin your morning commute as you always do: a coffee in hand and talk radio blaring from your speakers. However, all of a sudden, your commute takes a turn for the worst when someone strikes your car due to being negligent behind the wheel. For instance, maybe the other driver was attempting to text and drive simultaneously, which is a far too common occurrence these days.

Criminal law: Mother allegedly forgot baby in car, faces charges

Alabama police recently arrested a mother who apparently forgot her child inside of her locked vehicle. She is accused of endangering the welfare of a child, although it does not appear that she is still in police custody for this alleged criminal law violation. At the time of the incident she also had her other child with her.

Criminal law: UA linebacker arrested, kicked off team

No one makes it through life without making their fair share of mistakes, but some people end up paying much more for their missteps than others. When accused of violating criminal law, many Alabama defendants end up facing immediate consequences, and potentially even more if convicted. A former linebacker from the University of Alabama is unfortunately currently dealing with this type of situation.

What does family law say about child custody?

For Alabama parents, there may be no greater concern during divorce than how much time they will have with their children. Regardless of how invested in the matter you are, child custody is a difficult topic that can be even more difficult to sort out. Family law can be nuanced, which makes understanding how it applies to your unique situation confusing.

Does personal injury law cover motorcycle accidents?

Whether for the sensation of the air rushing past them or the feeling of freedom on an open road, for some people in Alabama there is nothing better than riding a motorcycle on a perfect summer day. There may not be anything more dangerous, either. Although most motorcyclists are incredibly focused on safety, drivers of larger motor vehicles rarely have the same focus, putting you at risk for a serious injury, which is eligible for compensation under personal injury law.

Did your medical need cause an opioid addiction and drug charges?

Maybe you had surgery or were in an accident that left you in a lot of pain. When receiving your medical care, your doctor prescribed an opioid that worked wonders and helped you get back on your feet. Well, that feeling left you wanting more, but your medical provider started refusing your requests for refills. This caused you to look elsewhere for the medicine you felt you needed to get through the day and this search eventually landed you in jail on drug charges.

Personal injury law allows families to seek compensation

No matter how safely most Alabama residents drive, it is impossible to avoid encountering those who act recklessly behind the wheel. Unfortunately, many of these negligent drivers fail to take into account the conditions of the roads on which they travel, making some areas more dangerous than others. Although there is nothing that can undo the devastation of a fatal accident, personal injury law allows for compensation to victims and surviving family members.
