As Alabama personal injury lawyers, we have the privilege and honor to represent clients injured in accidents. If you or a family member has suffered injuries caused by another party, you need an attorney you can trust. Thousands of clients have trusted us for more than 50 years because of our commitment, knowledge, and hard work.
A personal injury claim, when successful, can be the difference between barely scraping by and having a solid financial footing to help you get your life back. The Wininger Law Firm has helped many others who’ve been injured over the years. We can help you, too.
You may try to negotiate a settlement with an insurance company, but that would be a mistake. You don’t perform your own dentistry. You won’t build an addition to your home by yourself. You understand there are times when you’re better off getting help from someone with specialized knowledge and experience. There are many reasons The Wininger Law Firm is the best choice for you and your family.
Our firm helps people with all kinds of injuries caused by others, no matter where or how the accident happened. Except for a few instances where injuries are caused intentionally, our cases involve errors that shouldn’t have occurred. All these claims have negligence in common. It’s a legal theory meant to hold parties accountable for their mistakes.
To have a successful negligence case, you need to prove, with strong evidence, that it’s more likely than not that the party responsible for your injury was negligent in causing an accident. Our team of personal injury lawyers in Alabama would establish:
Were you partially at fault for an accident? Unlike the law in most states, under Alabama law if a defendant can show you are partially to blame for the accident, your case could be dismissed. Given this limitation, it’s important to call The Wininger Law Firm so we can meet and talk about your accident.
Our attorneys understand insurance coverage and payments. Insurance is critical to personal injury claims. Depending on the facts, the damages in a case can be substantial, far more than an individual or a small business can pay. Insurance policies can pay for the insured’s legal defense, a settlement, or verdict, subject to the policy’s exclusions and limits.
Here’s an essential tip: Avoid talking to the other party’s insurance company. They’ll want you to say something that will show you’re responsible in some way so they can deny your claim. You may mistakenly tell them what they want to hear. That’s where our experienced attorneys come in. We do the talking for you. Let us negotiate with the insurance company representatives on your behalf.
Most of our clients are injured in vehicle accidents. Though modern life couldn’t be possible without motor vehicles, accidents can cause fatal and life-changing injuries.
Some manufacturers put profit ahead of safety by designing or making ATVs at the lowest cost, using inferior materials. The US Product Safety Commission estimates about 90,000 people are injured and 120 people killed in ATV accidents in the country annually. Children suffer more than half of all ATV injuries and deaths. An ATV’s defective design or manufacturing can cause life-threatening rollovers and lethal injuries to riders of all ages.
Recovering from injuries caused in a car crash can take months to years, and you may never fully recover. You may lose your job and your ability to support your family, adding to the stress caused by your injuries. An insurance company won’t look after you. The adjuster who calls may promise to investigate your claim, but the company will focus on reducing its liability and financial exposure. The Wininger Law Firm’s goal is to negotiate or litigate your case until a successful settlement or verdict is won.
Motorcycles offer a unique experience but much less protection than an automobile. Riders are far more likely to be injured or killed in an accident compared to car occupants. The Alabama motorcycle accident lawyers at The Wininger Law Firm know there’s an unfair bias against motorcyclists by law enforcement officers, insurance companies, and jurors. Our motorcyclist clients don’t bring accidents upon themselves.
Large trucks are involved in about 460,000 crashes annually, killing about 5,000 people. In nearly all fatal accidents involving passenger vehicles, the driver of the smaller vehicle is the one killed. For more than 56 years, we have successfully represented truck accident victims and their family members in injury or wrongful death cases. We zealously represent our clients against trucking companies, their company lawyers, and insurance carriers.
A pedestrian is no match for the force of a car or truck in an accident. There’s a huge potential for life-threatening or lethal injuries after a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, then thrown back onto the street or into an object.
Many of our clients are recovering from an injury sustained in a wide range of accidents, in one of many locations. They all benefit from the experience and knowledge we’ve developed in our more than 50 years of service to Alabama communities.

Local news reports here and here describe the potential risks and s[...]
