Car Wrecks, Accident Analysis & Litigation

Injuries suffered in automobile wrecks can be severe and life altering. You may have neck and back injuries from whiplash, broken bones, or internal injuries.

Our firm understands that your immediate concerns after a wreck are getting well, paying medical bills, receiving compensation for lost wages, and making sure the responsible insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your injury. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will discuss your situation and explain the options available to you.

Our Huntsville law firm represents clients who have suffered injuries or property damage in automobile, motorcycle or truck wrecks in Alabama. Many wrecks involve drunk drivers, hit-and-run drivers, or uninsured drivers. Some wrecks involve tractor trailer trucks or other commercial vehicles.

How We Resolve Car Accident Related Cases

In every case we perform an extensive accident analysis:

First, we look at the drivers involved, the so-called 'crash worthiness' of the vehicles to make sure that the crumple zone and other safety equipment operated properly.
We also look at the safety restraints (e.g. seatbelts, airbags and windows) to make sure that the injuries weren't made worse due to a failure.
Finally, we look at the road where the accident occurred to make sure it didn't cause or contribute to the accident.

We often have accidents reconstructed by PhD-level physicists who help understand the forces at work and how they shaped the wreck. We will work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure all of your needs are handled quickly and appropriately.

Federal court to hear Madison County V Hill
Hill v. Madison County School Board

In 2010 at Sparkman middleschool policy of only punishing sexual harassment if a student was "caught in the act" through witnesses, an admission, or physical evidence lead to the violation of an innocent student. Based on this policy, school officials failed to effectively address repeated sexual harassment of multiple female students by a male student. A 14-year-old female student was recruited by school officials sent her as bait in a sting operation to "catch him in the act." Mr. Artrip and the firm are representing that student in a complaint against the administrators and schoolboard, and have been vocal advocates for the victim.
