Why Choose Drake Law Firm?

While there are many options for car accident victims, the law firm you choose to represent you can have a major impact on the outcome of your case. There are plenty of TV lawyers that would have you believe a snappy slogan and name recognition will get you the best results. We prefer to let our case results and experience speak for itself. Unlike those lawyers, 100% of our practice is devoted to Personal Injury litigation. With us, you’ll have a firm that has years of experience handling car accident cases, with the proven ability to take them to trial and win if need be.

At Drake Law Firm we:

  • Have won close to a thousand car accident cases over the last 10 years alone.
  • Have a success rate close to 99% for all the cases we handle.
  • Have earned the highest possible AV rating, as reviewed by our peers.
  • We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis. No fees unless we win.
  • Our attorneys understand how to maximize the value of car accident cases.

Our experience, reputation, and resources can result in more money for you in a much shorter amount of time than you can expect with most Alabama lawyers. In cases where insurance companies don’t treat our clients fairly, we will not hesitate to take them to trial. It’s this tenacity and commitment to winning for our clients that has earned us the reputation of winning the majority of the cases we take to the courtroom. Mr. Drake alone has obtained over $100 million in settlement and recoveries!

We are committed to helping our clients through every step of the process by being available to answer any questions.

Speak with an Attorney Right Away

Alabama is different to many states around the US. Here, we only have a short amount of time for you to file your case! On top of that, in the days and weeks after an accident, witnesses’ memories get hazy, evidence disappears, and insurance companies implement strategies to devalue claims. In fact, once they are alerted that you may be injured, insurance companies are notorious for calling and offering a medical settlement amount that is far less than you need to recover from your injuries.

    Hiring an attorney will help in a number of ways. At Drake Law Firm, we can:

  • Connect you with medical experts to get a full understanding of your injuries
  • Help put together a treatment plan to make sure you get the medical care you need to recover
  • Handle interactions with the insurance companies to ensure they don’t take advantage of you
  • Gather all necessary evidence and documentation to build the strongest case possible
  • Negotiate a fair settlement from the insurance companies
  • Take them to trial if they don’t treat you fairly

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident?

In most cases, you only need a lawyer after a car accident if you or a loved one has suffered injuries. In order to make sure the insurance company does not take advantage of you, it is always advised to hire a car accident lawyer who will try and maximize the settlement amount offered by the insurance companies.

How much is my car accident case worth?

The value of a car accident case is different in every situation. The amount of settlement money offered by the insurance company should account for hospital bills past, present and future, loss of income from inability to work, pain and suffering, and other factors. Generally speaking, the more serious the injuries one has suffered, the more value a case has.
