Personal Injury Attorneys in Alabama

A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for the injury.

- John Stuart Mill

Catastrophic injuries and infliction of emotional distress can change a person's life forever. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured due to the actions of another, fallen and injured yourself, or had an accident, you know that the suffering continues long after the injury is sustained. The suffering is more than just the physical pain. It is also emotional and financial. Recovering from a serious injury can require substantial medical costs which could bankrupt you or destroy your family's financial future. The stress this brings comes at the worst time. You should not have to deal with this hardship on top of what you are already going through.

Fortunately, residents of Birmingham and across the state of Alabama have a place to turn when they are injured through no fault of their own.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Car Accidents

The injuries suffered in car accidents range from minor cuts and bruises to brain injuries, back injuries, and death. Recovering from a serious accident can take weeks, months, or even a lifetime. The process can be painful, emotional, and expensive. You should not have to carry the burden of fighting for your rights while dealing with recovery.


Slip and fall cases are typically covered by premises liability law. Premises liability laws in Alabama require a property owner to keep his or her property free of foreseeable dangers and obvious hazards. This can apply in any place a person visits legally - a business, a workplace, a private home, even a sidewalk. While the majority of falls are minor, they can cause broken bones, brain injuries, back problems, and more.

Product Liability

Businesses that make and sell products bear a responsibility to ensure that those products are safe and that consumers are warned of potential dangers which may arise when those products are used. When companies fail to meet this duty and people are injured as a result, the company can be held legally accountable. Below are some examples of potential product liability:

  • A faulty swing set
  • A defective car part
  • A dangerous pharmaceutical drug or apparatus
  • A lawnmower with insufficient safety protections
  • Harmful cosmetics or other health and beauty products
Workplace Accidents

There are various ways to seek compensation after a workplace injury. Alabama's workers' compensation system was established to help employees get medical attention and lost wages when they are injured on the job due to negligence. Accepting this compensation typically means waiving your right to file a lawsuit against your employer.

It is possible that filing a lawsuit may be a better option than a workers' compensation claim. If you have been injured at work, you should speak with an attorney about your legal options.

What Kind Of Compensation Is Available?

At Haynes & Haynes, P.C., we know that each case is unique. We craft our approach based on the facts of your case. But one thing is always the same: we will always seek the maximum amount of compensation available under the law.

The injuries our clients have suffered often cause more than physical pain. Treating a serious injury can carry staggering costs that can threaten the financial stability of families. This is a burden you do not deserve at this difficult time.

Compensatory damages which may be available include:

  • Costs of ambulance transportation, hospital stays, and emergency care not otherwise covered by insurance
  • Rehabilitation costs, including costs of home aides and assistants, not otherwise covered by insurance
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship and consortium

We know that no amount of compensation will change what happened in the past. Our goal is to give you a path to a better future. Contact Haynes & Haynes today!
