Q: I was involved in an accident 11/18/22. The other driver came in my lane going in the same direction at 70mph in Ms.
The police report said she was changing lanes and hit my car, ran my off the road. I’m in pain due to rheumatoid arthritis and plates and screws previously in both wrists. I live in Florence Al, the wreck occurred in Starkville Ms. Do I contact her insurance or what?
A: You should contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Do not speak with an adjuster or insurance company until you have spoken with an attorney and received legal counsel. Based on the few facts that you report, it appears that the other driver is at fault. Any time there are significant injuries, the case has the potential to involve complex issues of liability, causation, and damages. You should consult with an attorney to protect your interests and learn about your rights under Alabama Law.
