Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim in the United States. Every day, drivers are at risk of becoming involved in an accident that could leave them with severe and sometimes devastating injuries, many unsure of what may come next.

If you have been involved in an accident the Alabama law grants certain compensations for:
- Medical bills
- Pain and Suffering
- Lost Wages
- Property Loss
- Emotional Distress
In order to obtain these compensations negligence must be established. The lawyers at Barfoot & Schoettker can thoroughly review your accident to determine who may be held liable for your injuries.
It is important to know your rights and be cautious as you begin the process of seeking compensation. Often, a representative of the negligent party's auto insurance company may make a seemingly appealing offer in your personal injury case. However, you must remember that signing a release of your personal injury claim in exchange for a check from an insurance company can terminate your personal injury claim, preventing you from receiving the full amount you deserve.
Insurance companies are businesses. Therefore, even if the insurance company makes what you believe is a reasonable settlement offer, it may be in your best interest to contact experienced car accident attorneys, like Barfoot & Schoettker, who put your interests ahead of the insurance companies and help you easily transition back into your everyday life.
