WE CARE ABOUT YOUR RECOVERY.
When it comes to personal injury cases, insurance companies are not on your side, since they often try paying out as little as possible.

What Types of Compensation Am I Entitled To?

When you aren’t at fault, the physical, psychological and financial burdens of an injury can be unjustly heavy - you do not have to shoulder them alone.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:
- Bodily injury
- Pain and suffering
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Property damages
- Value of life damages
When you call us for your free consultation with our legal team, we'll listen to your story, learn the details of your case, and evaluate your options together.
What is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is a broad area of law that deals with any physical harm or injury caused to an individual as a result of the intentional, accidental, or negligent actions of others. This area of law covers a wide range of situations, including defective product cases, auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, nursing home abuse cases, medical malpractice cases, and wrongful death. A personal injury lawyer is a trial lawyer who represents clients who have been injured due to the actions of others. They have extensive experience in different practice areas and are well-equipped to handle complex cases involving serious injuries and significant damages.
At Wettermark Keith, our Birmingham personal injury attorneys are dedicated to fighting for clients who have been harmed by the negligence of others. We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that a personal injury can take on an individual and their family. That's why we work tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they deserve. We take a personalized approach to every case, tailoring our strategies to meet the unique needs and circumstances of each client.
What Types of Cases Do Our Birmingham Personal Injury Attorneys Handle?
Nestled in the center of the city, it can be hard to resist riding your bike through Railroad Park or the serene Rotary Trail. Despite the improvements Birmingham has made to make biking more accessible, tragic bicycle accidents can happen anywhere and continue to profoundly affect our community. Whether you have experienced a personal injury or lost a loved one in a bicycle wreck, we can help you secure recovery and justice.
Birmingham is a bustling city located in the heart of Alabama and is home to many individuals who have unfortunately suffered from burn injuries. Burn injuries can be incredibly traumatic and can leave victims with lifelong scarring and emotional damage. If you or a loved one has experienced a burn injury, it is essential to seek out expert legal representation to ensure that you receive the care and compensation that you deserve.
In the state of Alabama, a car accident occurs every 3 minutes and 55 seconds. Wrecks are not uncommon in Birmingham, a bustling hub with some of the most dangerous roadways in the state. If you were injured while ridesharing, or by a distracted driver, a rear ending, or other accident, you may be entitled to more compensation than your insurance providers offer. Our firm has seen it all, and we want to help you recover from this traumatic and disruptive event.
When a child is hurt in Birmingham, it evokes a feeling of pain in all of us, and we are compelled to take action to help them. For minor injuries like a scrape, a quick fix may suffice, but for serious injuries caused by someone else's negligence, you may need to defend your child's rights. Seeking legal advice from a child injury lawyer at Wettermark Keith can be helpful in such situations. We can help you focus on your child's recovery while you focus on getting a settlement from insurance companies and the responsible party.
Commercial drivers are often known for driving long hours, which can sometimes lead to distraction and fatigue. Unfortunately, this kind of driving can sometimes lead to serious accidents causing devastating injuries or even fatalities. Lawsuits involving commercial vehicles are different from those involving private cars due to differences in insurance and ownership relationships. An experienced Birmingham attorney's analysis of the case can make a significant difference in the outcome of the claim.
Construction sites are rated as one of the most frequent settings of workplace injuries in Alabama and nationwide, with 20% of annual U.S. worker deaths occurring on construction sites. Frequent causes of construction injuries in Birmingham include falling, electrocution or being trapped by a piece of machinery. Get the workers’ compensation and insurance coverage you deserve with the help of our firm's construction accident attorneys.
Consumers in Birmingham buy many different products every day. If these products are not manufactured correctly, they can pose serious risks to users. Some products may not meet the required safety standards and can cause personal injury or even wrongful death, even when used as directed. Defective product cases are usually high-profile since the companies that design, manufacture, and market them have significant resources to use in court. It is, therefore, essential to have the right defective products lawyer on your side like our experienced lawyers at Wettermark Keith.
The physical and emotional scars of a dog attack can last a lifetime. Off-leash strangers’ dogs, strays and poorly trained pets can suddenly become aggressive, leaving pain, disfiguring scars, and psychological trauma in their wake. In addition to high medical costs, attack victims can struggle with PTSD, sleep disturbances, and a debilitating fear of dogs. Even if the animal belongs to a friend or associate, pursuing a civil case is necessary to cover medical costs, as well as prevent future victims. Your friend's insurance company will be charged (not them personally) while our experienced Birmingham dog bite lawyers make sure you obtain a successful recovery.
Being a victim of a drunk driving accident can be a traumatic and life-changing experience. If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident in Birmingham, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. A drunk driving attorney can provide you with experienced lawyers who specialize in representing victims of drunk driving accidents. Our primary focus will be on helping you recover physically, emotionally, and financially from the accident.
A variety of circumstances - most commonly falls and auto wrecks - can cause head injuries. TBI, or traumatic brain injuries, can be partially or entirely debilitating, making it impossible for you to continue your career, family life, or hobbies. If you’ve suffered a head injury, call us. Let us help you seek justice and improve your quality of life.
Doctors swear an oath to protect their patients and act in their best interests. When a healthcare professional acts with negligence and violates the standard of care, they should be held accountable. Medical malpractice injuries can result from a healthcare professional acting in damage-causing negligence, omitting information, or making a serious error in diagnosis, treatment, or aftercare. Since medical malpractice cases are highly complex to navigate and must be acted on soon after the personal injury occurs, it's crucial to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney guide you through the process.
Motorcycles are over-represented in Alabama accident statistics and across the country, riders are 6 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries than car passengers. Even the strongest helmet offers far less protection than an airbag - lacking the protection of strong metal, a windshield, or a seatbelt, any collision can be fatal to a motorcycle rider. While Birmingham drivers are required by law to treat motorcycles the same as any other vehicle, too often they behave negligently, putting riders at risk for death. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact an attorney from Wettermark Keith today.
Nursing home abuse is an outrage that runs rampant in U.S. elder care, leaving victims neglected, malnourished, and abused behind closed doors. Unfortunately, Birmingham is no exception. Some signs of mistreatment might include unexplained bruises, sudden weight loss, or concerning conversations with a loved one in a long-term care facility. Our firm's personal injury attorneys can help investigate your suspicions and bring abusers to justice.
Despite having the right of way, pedestrians are frequently injured or killed by careless drivers. Just a second of inattention can result in years relearning to walk in physical therapy. If you or a loved one has been hit by a car, you can seek compensation for specific actions the driver failed to take.
While Birmingham is an excellent place to live, its occupants aren’t invulnerable. On the road and in the workplace, accidents and injuries happen every day. Suffering a personal injury or wrongful death due to negligence can be one of the most devastating events of your life. At Wettermark Keith, we understand the inherent stress of pursuing a civil case after an accident, and want to give you valuable peace of mind while you piece your life back together.
No matter how wonderful and interesting Birmingham is, tourists and residents alike aren’t immune to having to deal with hazardous conditions. If property owners fail to maintain their properties, visitors risk sustaining life-threatening or fatal premises liability injuries. While you’re dealing with the trauma, expense, and pain, the owner of the property is building a case to protect their own interests. If you or a loved one have been injured on someone else’s property, know that you don’t have to deal with this alone. While the property owner and insurance company focus on protecting themselves, our attorneys will exclusively advocate for your interests.
Slip and fall accidents in Birmingham are traumatizing and unpredictable. Insurance companies often try to minimize the compensation that slip and fall victims receive - they may attempt to shift blame to the victim of the accident, claiming they acted carelessly and are responsible for their own injuries. Our lawyers will help you navigate complex legal procedures, communicate with different parties on your behalf, and protect your rights all the way to the courtroom.
Large or commercial vehicles, including 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers, adhere to stringent safety regulations. When truck drivers flaunt these rules they put other drivers at significant risk. Accidents involving commercial trucks tend to cause more significant harm to those involved because of how heavy and large the vehicles are. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, our attorneys are here to help secure the financial compensation you deserve.
A workplace injury occurs roughly every seven seconds. In Alabama's private employment industry, 2.5 out of every 100 workers experiences a non-fatal injury on the job. Dangerous industries - like mining, manufacturing, and construction - may see the most serious injuries, but no one is immune to the risks of the workplace, since even sedentary jobs can lead to arthritis that damage your quality of life. Regardless of the nature of your job, workers' compensation is a fundamental right all employees deserve, and you should contact a workers' comp attorney if you have experienced an injury at work.
If you have been involved in an 18-wheeler accident, you may be dealing with severe injuries, medical expenses, and lost wages. In such cases, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages. Our attorneys can assist you in navigating the complex legal system, negotiating with insurance companies, and pursuing legal action against the responsible parties. Their primary focus will be on helping you recover physically, emotionally, and financially from the accident.
If you have been involved in any of these above accidents or others, do not hesitate to contact our personal injury attorneys from our Birmingham Wettermark Keith office to set up a free consultation with our legal team.
