By focusing specifically on cases involving severe and catastrophic injury, we have developed the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to get the best results for our clients, including dozens of verdicts and settlements of one million dollars or greater.
Our results speak for themselves, but what they don’t tell you is the compassion and sympathy we feel for our clients and the dedication we have to make sure they are fully taken care of. We are here to get results because we know how much you are hurting and how badly you need and deserve a significant level of compensation to deal with the harm inflicted on you by others and to hold them accountable for their negligence or misconduct. Our goal is to achieve justice in every case by ensuring our clients get everything they need and deserve after being injured through no fault of their own in an accident that could have been prevented had others simply taken more care.
Comprehensive Birmingham Personal Injury Law Practice
Our comprehensive personal injury practice covers the most serious accidents that happen on the road, at work, in the hospital or even at home. Call Goldasich, Vick & Fulk for help with any type of personal injury or negligence claim, including:
Motor vehicle accidents
We help victims of auto, trucking and motorcycle accidents caused by speeding, reckless, careless, drunk or distracted drivers. We handle the full range of motor vehicle crashes, including head-on collisions, rear-end collisions, rollover accidents and more.
Industrial, construction and workplace accidents
Even if you were hurt on the job, that doesn’t mean you necessarily have to rely solely on Workers’ Compensation benefits. There may be third parties responsible for the accident or your injuries, such as defective product manufacturers, independent contractors who negligently install scaffolds or set up faulty crane operations, property owners who maintain unsafe premises, negligent drivers and others.
We hold product manufacturers strictly liable for their failures to design or manufacture a product safely or their failures to include adequate warnings and instructions for their safe use. Our product defect litigation practice includes household consumer goods, work equipment and machinery, automobiles and more, including makers of dangerous drugs and defective medical devices.
The failure of a doctor to make a prompt and accurate diagnosis, or a mistake in the operating room or delivery room, can result in a lifetime disability or turn a curable condition into a terminal one. Our firm takes on doctors and hospitals who fall below the acceptable standard of care and commit unforgivable medical mistakes, including misdiagnosis, surgery errors, birth injuries, medication errors, postoperative infections, and others.
When another’s negligence inflicts the most serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, burns, amputations, or wrongful death, Goldasich, Vick & Fulk attorneys are ready to take on the negligent parties and fight to get the results you need and deserve.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney and How Goldasich, Vick & Fulk Can Help
Insurance companies want to pay out as little as they can on a claim or avoid liability altogether if they can. They are also trained and experienced in handling claims and getting people to take as little as possible or convincing them they don’t have a case. This is what they do for a living, and people who settle their claims without an attorney helping them get far less than what their case is worth and far less than what a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer could get for them.
One common insurance company tactic is to shift at least some of the blame for the injury onto the injury victim. In most states, this trick reduces the amount the insurer has to pay, but in Alabama, people who are considered “contributorily negligent” cannot recover any compensation at all from the other negligent party. It’s crucial to have a skilled and knowledgeable attorney on your side who can investigate the facts and build a strong case that proves the other party’s fault and defends you from baseless claims that you were also responsible when you weren’t.
Even when they can’t avoid liability, the insurers will fight the amount they have to pay by downplaying the serious nature of the injury. They’ll claim it is exaggerated or even nonexistent or that it couldn’t have happened in the alleged accident. For many injuries, the insurance companies will allege the harm is the result of a preexisting condition from a past injury or a degenerative disease. Documenting the injury and proving damages is key to a successful recovery, and they are tasks our firm excels in, as demonstrated by the six dozen verdicts and settlements of a million dollars or more we have achieved, along with countless other significant results.
