Each year over 800* people die on Alabama roads due to vehicle accidents leaving grieving families who deserve justice for their loss. A lawyer will not only seek that justice but also file for lost future income, loss of vehicle, present and future treatment costs of injuries of survivors, and more.

A traffic accident does not have to have a fatality to fundamentally alter the life and financial situation of a victim. Many times, people who survive a car wreck are left with medical problems and bills that lead to financial ruin. For example, an older lady struck a car that pulled out in front of her. She suffered a broken hip that required hospitalization, surgery and rehab. Because she was hospitalized and could not work she was fired from her job and then faced the daunting task of finding suitable employment as an older person. Due to one person's inattention, this woman was left with permanent medical problems, pain, jobless, no vehicle for transportation and thousands of dollars in medical bills. The auto accident lawyers at Cherry & Irwin in Dothan want to hear from you today if you have had a similar experience.

About 40,000 people were injured in Alabama last year in auto accidents. If you are one of the people who were injured in a car accident in the Dothan, Alabama area, southern Alabama, Florida or Georgia within the past two years, and you believe you are owed compensation, take a minute to fill out the form on this page to contact our car accident attorneys. We will provide you with a free consultation and give you some advice on moving forward.
