What is Personal Injury?
A personal injury is exactly what the name implies. It is an accident to a person that causes injury. The injury can be a physical one or a mental or emotional one and can range from mild to very severe. A personal injury can include bruises and contusions, broken bones, severe psychological damage, being in a permanent vegetative state, or even death. The area of law that governs personal injuries is known as “tort law.” A tort is defined as a civil wrong and a lawsuit related to a personal injury is often called a tort action.
In a tort lawsuit, there are always at least two parties. The party that is injured is called the “Plaintiff.” The party that caused the injury is the “Defendant.” In any given personal injury case, there can be more than one defendant, depending on how many parties are at fault for the injury.
Your injuries may have been caused by another person’s negligent behavior, such as in a car accident, or even reckless, willful or wanton behavior, such as in a drunk driving accident. If that is the case, the responsible party may be required by law to compensate you for your injuries. It is the job of an Alabama personal injury attorney, like the skilled attorneys at Farris, Riley & Pitt, to assist you through this process and help you to reach the best possible resolution.
Personal Injury Can Devastate and Destroy Individuals and Families
Our attorneys know all too well the devastating impact a personal injury can have on the victim and the victim’s family. If the person injured is the breadwinner of the family and can no longer work as a result of the injury, the financial impact can be crushing. Not only will you suffer as a result of lost wages, but medical and hospital bills can quickly pile up. Dealing with the aftermath of physical or mental injuries is difficult and greatly compounded if there are financial problems added to the mix.
Worse yet, is when the injury involves a child or when it results in the death of a family member. Many people recovering from such a loss are not in the right state of mind to pursue legal action. The attorneys at Farris, Riley & Pitt are well aware of the hardships you are living through and are ready to assist you as if you were a family member.
Whether it is obtaining proper medical care, finding a way to make ends meet while we are pursuing a lawsuit, engaging in negotiations with an insurance company or obtaining grief counseling—we can help you. Our goal is to help you become whole again and to try to regain the life you were living before the accident. We will work on pursuing that goal while you concentrate on recovery.

Determining who is negligent and responsible for your injuries and how many parties may be responsible for your injuries can directly impact the amount of your recovery.
In addition to our attorneys, your case may require additional expertise. If you have been injured by a prescription medication, we will provide you with a medical or pharmaceutical expert that can show a judge, jury or insurance company exactly what caused your injuries and the extent of them.
If you’ve been injured in a traffic accident, our traffic experts can recreate the accident and prove who is at fault. They can also determine if the conditions at the scene of the accident can lead to findings of liability on behalf of other parties, such as local government agencies.

We Seek Just Compensation and the Best Possible Outcomes
If you’ve been injured as a result of another party’s negligence, you may be eligible for many different forms of compensation. Some claims are settled before going to court. In that case, our attorneys will negotiate with insurance companies to obtain the largest possible settlement. Insurance companies are notorious for making personal injury victims wade through “red tape” and sometimes jump through hoops before agreeing to compensate them. They may also deny a victim the compensation that is legally due. We have years of experience in dealing with insurance companies and will make sure that no one takes advantage of you. Our track record for obtaining the best possible settlements for our clients is legendary.
Another way you may be compensated is in the form of lost wages. You may be able to recoup lost wages if your injury has rendered you unable to work. You may also recover all or part of the medical, hospital and physical therapy expenses you’ve incurred as a result of your injuries. In some cases, you may receive monetary compensation for your pain and suffering.
If a judge or jury finds that the person responsible for your injuries was reckless or willful, you may be awarded punitive damages. Punitive damages are intended as a punishment for the behavior of the responsible party as well as a deterrent, and they can be substantial. Finally, in the event the accident resulted in death, our attorneys are well versed in Alabama wrongful death law and will seek legal compensation for your tragedy.
