Trucking Accident
The Dodd Law Firm handles cases involving accidents caused by large trucks and tractor-trailers.
Truck accidents are amongst the most serious and feared of all accidents that happen on the roads, and unfortunately often lead to catastrophic injuries and even a wrongful death. From a legal perspective, truck accident claims can also be the most involved and difficult to handle.

Given the size of commercial trucks and the speeds at which they travel, it is understandable why wrecks involving trucks are often the most devastating of all traffic accidents. A commercial truck can weigh as much as 75,000 pounds, while an average passenger car weighs around 3,000 pounds.

If you have been involved in a truck accident, it is important that you contact an experienced truck accident lawyer right away. Truck accidents can be complicated because they can include, for example, witness testimonies, insurance companies for the driver and the owner of the truck, medical records review, accident reconstructions and a large number of both state and federal regulatory issues
Auto Accident
We represent clients who have been injured in a car accident. Protection for those in need, fairness for all who seek our help.
From the moment a car accident occurs, insurance companies scramble to protect their own interests. If you have been injured due to the carelessness of another driver, you should have someone in your corner fighting to protect you. Only an experienced car accident lawyer that has a track record of going against the big insurance firms can make sure you are treated fairly. Don't wait until it is too late, the first few days after an accident are critical. Before you talk to anyone else, call us for a free consultation to find out how we can help you with your injuries, medical bills and property damage after you've been injured in a car accident. 205-327-8388.
Wrongful Death
In the event that a tragic accident results in the death of a loved one, you will need experienced counsel to guide you through the difficult times ahead. The Dodd Law Firm will stand by you in your most difficult times.
Although a wrongful death is a terrible thing, it is important to act quickly if you are filing a wrongful death claim. Many states have statutes of limitations that limit the amount of time you have to file your wrongful death claim.

Filing a wrongful death claim and determining the amount of compensation your family deserves as a result, can be extremely complicated and emotionally difficult. A wrongful death lawyer will be able to assist you throughout the entire process. During the wrongful death claim process, your experienced lawyer will help show that the other party's negligence caused the death of your family member. An experienced wrongful death lawyer understands all aspects of these stressful claims, and they can help you identify what losses you have and will experience.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

No.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

We follow a strict policy of apportioning workloads so that the cost to each client is minimized.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

We use those alternatives when we believe they would be to our client's advantage.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Yes

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Experience, Commitment to Client Communication, and Relationships Built Over Time.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

We want the best informed clients possible, and will not rest until our clients fully understand their situations and their options.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We will review client contributions, but we always reserve the right to ultimately determine the strategy used in any particular case.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

No. We have never seen a situation, even amongst the many lawyers we have represented, where a client would be better served representing themselves instead of having skilled and experienced representation provided to them.
