The Effects Of A Motor Vehicle Accident Can Be Devastating

We understand for many people that the thought of taking legal action can be quite scary. However, any of the types of accidents listed above can cause broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, back injuries or other long-term health problems. If you are hurt, unable to work and medical bills are piling up, it could cost you more in the long-run if you do not take action.

We will gather evidence, consult with expert witnesses and prepare for trial. With us on your side, you can leave the complex legal work to us while you focus on what is truly important: getting better.


Dog Bite

When a property owner has to make sure the premises are free and clear of any hazards that can cause injuries to visitors or customers, that includes the danger of being attacked by animals such as dangerous breeds of dogs.

Unfortunately, some dogs — pit bulls, German shepherds, Rottweilers and chows — are more dangerous than others, and if you or a loved one is the victim of a dog attack, the effects can be extremely harmful. The law, however, provides certain protections to the victims of dog bites, and our personal injury attorneys at The Shirley Law Firm can help you make sense of the law and aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf. If you are in Southeast Alabama, call our law firm today at 334-897-5775.

Dog bites can lead to severe consequences such as wrongful death or severe cuts that can become infected and result in scarring and disfigurement. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible and follow your doctor’s orders for treatment. After you receive treatment, consider contacting a personal injury lawyer to discuss your legal rights.

Representing Dog Bite Victims From Elba All The Way To Dothan

According to Alabama law, if you are lawfully on the dog owner's property and you are either bitten on the property or chased from the property and then bitten, the dog's owner may be liable for any damages.

It can be difficult to prove a dog bite claim, which is why it is crucial that you get the right representation. With our lawyers — who have spent years representing personal injury defendants — on your side, you will benefit from our deep knowledge of personal injury and premises liability law.


Why You Should Speak With An Experienced Attorney First

Insurance adjusters will contact you and attempt to get you to agree to a settlement or to admit fault. If your injuries are preventing you from working and making a living, it is important that you do not agree to a settlement that does not meet your actual needs.

Our lawyers, who have decades of experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury cases, can thoroughly investigate your case, gather evidence and use their knowledge and experience to give you useful, practical legal advice about your case, including your options and expected outcomes. They can help you determine a suitable amount of compensation.
