Our Bessemer Accident Attorneys Help Families Recover

A serious accident can turn your whole life upside down. You may need costly medical treatment and extensive rehabilitation. You may have a loss of income and a stack of unpaid medical bills. Catastrophic injuries may leave you unable to return to your former job or provide for your family. You may require job retraining.

Our Bessemer accident attorneys can help take the guesswork out of your recovery. Here’s where we can help:

  • Car Accidents – Jefferson County had nearly 37,263 motor vehicles accidents in 2018, by far the most of any county in Alabama. Many of these accidents occur in Hoover, Bessemer, McCalla, Fairfield, Midfield, Hueytown and other areas of the Bessemer Division. Many people suffer traumatic head injuries and other injuries through the carelessness or inattention of another driver. Many of these accidents are caused by distracted drivers who use their phone while driving. Victims of car accidents have a legal right in Alabama to seek compensation from an at-fault driver and their insurance company for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses incurred. A Bessemer car accident attorney at Hall & Tucker, LLC will help you obtain the compensation you need to recover after a serious injury in a car accident in Jefferson County.
  • Tractor Trailer Accidents –  The vast majority of those suffering fatal injuries and serious head and back injuries in truck accidents are occupants of other smaller vehicles, such as cars and pickup trucks, smashed by big rigs. Whether the accident involves a tractor trailer, flatbed, semi, semi-trailer or other 18-wheeler, a truck accident lawyer at Hall & Tucker, LLC can analyze a crash and identify all the contributing factors, such as truck driver fatigue, improper lane changes, failure to yield, tailgating, speeding, faulty equipment and lack of maintenance by a trucking company.
  • Wrongful Death – If a loved one has been killed in an accident due to another’s carelessness, misconduct or disregard for safety, your family may have legal rights to file a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil lawsuit brought against the person or company that is responsible for an accidental death. The window of time for filing a wrongful death claim in Alabama is two year after the death. While no amount of money will replace your loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit will send a loud and clear message that the accident that took your loved one’s life was avoidable and intolerable. A just settlement or jury verdict may help your family achieve some closure after a terrible accident, as well as providing financial security. A Jefferson County wrongful death attorney can give you trusted advice and help your family move forward.
  • Work-Related Injuries / Workers’ Compensation – If you are injured on the job in a workplace with five or more employees in Alabama, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company should cover your doctor and hospital bills and a portion of your lost income. All too often, insurance companies try to deny valid work-related injury claims. A Jefferson County workers’ compensation lawyer can cut through the red tape and help you get the money and medical care you need. If the work-related accident was caused by a co-worker’s carelessness, a subcontractor’s disregard for safety, or an unsafe equipment design, the injured worker may also be able to file a third-party claim to seek additional compensation from the responsible party. A monetary settlement can provide your family security after the loss of income due to a workplace accident.
  • Heavy Equipment Injuries / Machinery Injuries – Working with molten steel and heavy machinery in an Alabama steel mill remains dangerous work. Serious head injuries, burn injuries and crushing injuries occur too often. Similarly, a brick plant worker can suffer traumatic injuries or disabling injuries in an accident involving machinery such as a grinder, pug mill, extruder or reel cutter. Any workplace where workers operate large equipment or heavy machinery is filled with hazards. If a serious injury occurs because of a machine’s defective design, because of unsafe work conditions or because of misconduct by another worker, Alabama law allows the injured worker to file a lawsuit and claim monetary compensation from the responsible party. The heavy equipment injury lawyers at Hall & Tucker, LLC have guided a number of workers to a successful recovery after serious industrial accidents.
  • Dangerous Prescription Drugs / Defective Medical Devices – As a patient, you trust that the medications you are prescribed and the treatments you receive will make you healthier. But the fact is, manufacturers put many medical devices and prescription drugs on the market before the side effects are well understood. Serious and sometimes deadly complications can arise from dangerous drugs or defective medical devices. Drug companies and medical device manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make and sell products that are safe and effective when used as intended. When patients suffer complications or families lose a loved one as a result of unsafe drugs or defective medical devices, you have a right to seek compensation. While no amount of money will replace a lost loved one, holding a negligent manufacturer accountable can provide your family some financial security.
