        Workers’ Compensation Accidents

        Injuries in the workplace or involving company vehicles can happen in many ways. Your employer may fail to provide a safe work environment, leading to slip and fall injuries, for example. Or, faulty work equipment may cause injury, as when for example, faulty wiring leads to electrocution or fire. Sometimes there is no fault or the client is actually at fault. Even in those situations, workers’ compensation benefits are still available.

        When if you find yourself unable to collect workers’ compensation you are rightfully owed, it may be necessary to pursue compensation through a lawsuit.

        Wrongful Death Accidents

        When a family loses their loved one to a wrongful death, the devastation is often spread over many lives. Children lose a parent, a spouse loses their lifelong companion, parents lose a child.

        When bringing a wrongful death claim in the state of Alabama, having the guidance of a wrongful death attorney is critical. If you’ve lost your loved one due to the negligence of another, don’t take chances with your claim, seek the help of an experienced Alabama wrongful death attorney.

        Car Accidents

        One of the most common types of personal injury claims is a car accident. These accidents happen for many reasons, from aggressive driving to driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, to distracted driving. Sometimes drivers fail to take fatigue seriously and simply fall asleep at the wheel.

        These accidents can cause any number of injuries and may involve more than one responsible party. In addition to negligent drivers, the car manufacturer or a specific parts manufacturer can be at fault for your accident. In addition, a restaurant or bar may be responsible for serving alcohol to a drunk driver that caused your accident.

        Our Alabama car accident attorney knows how to identify all at-fault parties and connect their actions to your injuries to build your strongest claim. In addition to identifying who’s at-fault, successfully resolving your accident claim involves keeping the insurance company from trying to escape responsibility by blaming you.

        Truck Accidents

        The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks cause extensive damage in accidents. If you’ve been injured by a commercial truck, it’s important to be aware of the differences in the insurance policies of these vehicles when making a claim.

        The nature of the goods hauling business results in complex policies with layers of coverage, often with multiple policies covering different parts of the same truck. There may be numerous at-fault parties, which may include the owner of the trailer, the owner of the tractor, the operator, the person who loads the vehicle, the owner of that load, and so on, including maintenance companies and more.

        One of the key things your Alabama truck accident attorney will help you with is preventing the insurance company from turning any blame for the accident around on you. Alabama law states that if you are found to be even 1% responsible for a motor vehicle accident, you cannot receive compensation. Navigating this strict law is just one of the necessities claimants face when taking on the insurance industry.

        Pedestrian Accidents

        The vulnerability of pedestrians when struck by a motor vehicle usually results in catastrophic injury. In addition to needing to be physically, mentally, and emotionally up to the challenge of taking on an insurance company, claimants must be extremely careful to avoid any amount of blame for the accident.

        The contributory negligence insurance rule in Alabama prevents a pedestrian found to be even 1% to blame for an accident from recovering compensation. This alone makes it critical to have the help of a skilled Alabama pedestrian accident attorney when making a claim.

        Bicycle Accidents

        The lack of protection a cyclist has when hit by a motor vehicle often causes them serious injury. To make matters worse, Alabama’s negligence rules make it imperative for cyclists to have the help of an experienced Alabama bicycle accident attorney when filing a claim.

        According to Alabama’s contributory negligence law, an injured party who is even 1% to blame for the accident will not receive compensation for their damages. Attorney Maples’s background is exceptionally helpful in this area, having worked in his early days on the side of the insurance industry. He now uses the insight he gained during those early days to protect as many claimants as possible from being abused at the hands of big insurance.

        Construction Accidents

        Construction sites are full of potential hazards that can cause injury due to falls from heights, ladders, and scaffolding, slips and falls, being hit by falling objects, malfunctioning machinery, tools, and equipment, accidents while in company vehicles, and more. Construction sites not only pose risks to the workers on them, but to those living and playing near them and drivers navigating around them.

        If you’re filing an insurance claim for injuries you’ve sustained in a construction accident, make sure you contact Attorney Maples to get your claim questions answered. It’s crucial to have the help of an experienced construction accident attorney to protect your rights and guide you through the process.

        How Jacob A. Maples
        Can Help You

        Clearly Identify Who’s At-Fault

        Attorney maples has the experience to properly conduct an accident investigation to clearly establish all parties responsible for your damages. This is essential to the success of any personal injury claim in Alabama, where the rule of contributory negligence prevents an accident victim from receiving compensation if they are found to be even 1% to blame for their injuries.

        Unlike states in which someone partially responsible for an accident may still make a claim, Alabama requires claimants to have zero fault to be eligible for compensation. Therefore it’s imperative to move forward with an experienced personal injury lawyer by your side.

        Don’t take the risk that the party responsible for your damages will use this rule to escape their obligation to compensate you. Call Attorney Maples for a free consultation about your claim today

        Prevent the Insurance Company from Taking Advantage of You

        Without an attorney to handle your communications with the insurance company, you are likely to be pushed around and disrespected. Adjusters will pressure you to make a recorded statement that will be used against you. The insurance company is likely to drag out your claim with delays or even deny it outright from the start, forcing you try and appeal the denial or give up.

        With a skilled trial attorney in your corner, the insurance company is on notice from the start that if they refuse to negotiate your claim in good faith, they’ll be sued. They’ll also know they aren’t going to get away with lowball offers because your attorney will be there to guide you about the true value of your claim. When you show up with an experienced Alabama personal injury lawyer, you safeguard the value of your claim

        Get Your Claim Filed as Efficiently as Possible

        When filing your accident claim, you must submit your paperwork according to all deadlines. These vary according to the specifics of your claim; for instance, when filing a claim involving a municipality in Alabama, your filing window is going to be cut to a fraction of that of a standard claim. Instead of the standard two-year time limit, you’re going to have only six months to get your claim filed.

        Retaining an experienced attorney will ensure you make your filing deadlines every step of the way. It will also give you the best chance to make your strongest claim within whatever timeframe you’ve got. Your attorney will want to jump into your accident investigation as quickly as possible while you begin your journey toward maximum medical improvement

        Get the Highest Possible Compensation for Your Damages

        Attorney Maples can get you the highest available compensation for your claim through:

        • The ability to identify all at-fault parties through an accident investigation
        • The skillful assessment of your economic and non-economic damages
        • Protecting the value of your claim. He will do this by handling all communications with the insurance company, guiding you in considering settlement offers, excelling in settlement negotiation, and the ability to skillfully litigate your claim
