At the Florence, Alabama law office of John C. Saylor, LLC, we serve clients throughout Alabama in personal injury and wrongful death litigation arising from serious accidents; including construction, medical malpractice, automotive, 18-wheeler, motorcycle, and various other types of serious accidents. Our practice has been at the forefront of personal injury litigation, always implementing innovative and compelling trial strategies, and ultimately, achieving excellent results for our clients.
A personal injury claim exists when a person has suffered harm due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful acts of another. Victims may recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages generally include medical expenses for hospital stays and doctors appointments, past and future lost wages, and any other monetary expenses the person incurred as a result of the injury. Non-economic damages generally include compensation for pain and suffering, disability, and emotional distress.
Victims of accidents may suffer injuries that are catastrophic, life changing, or debilitating. Common types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injury (SCI)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Burn Injuries
- Loss of limbs
It is essential that victims suffering catastrophic injuries are represented by lawyers who have a comprehensive understanding of the nature, causes, and characteristics of their injuries, which can require detailed understanding of technical medical terms and concepts. We understand Alabama’s laws with respect to victim’s rights and how our clients can recoup and recover for their injuries and damages.
We handle wrongful death claims on behalf of grieving families throughout Alabama, including those who have lost a loved one in an auto accident, trucking accident, construction accident, or other tragic event. We understand that the death of a loved one takes a great toll on survivors, especially when the loss occurs suddenly. The Alabama Wrongful Death Act and similar laws in many other states provide families a means to seek restitution when a loved one’s death was caused by the negligence, wrongful act, or carelessness of another party. Recoverable damages in wrongful death suits can include:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Lost wages and benefits
- Compensation for pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of companionship, support, and care
In Alabama, wrongful death cases can encompass both state and federal law, making these lawsuits especially complex and compounding an already difficult situation. When assisting clients with wrongful death claims, we strive to let families focus on their emotional recovery while we handle all aspects of the case, from investigating the accident to easing the stress of trial.
