Law Firms Serving the Gulf Coast and AL, MS, FL, GA
Alexander Shunnarah & Associates covers several areas of legal practice throughout four states. We have seven specific locations in which we work throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia. An explanation of each of our concentrations may be found below.
Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury cases are defined as legal disputes that are established upon a person suffering harm from an accident or injury where another person might be held legally responsible for the occurrence. The case becomes formalized with civil court proceedings with intent to find others legally at fault through a court judgment, an informal settlement prior to any lawsuit being filed.
Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys: Auto, Motorcycle, Truck
Our motor vehicle accident attorneys are well-versed in the following four basic levels of fault for common law: negligence, intentional misconduct, recklessness, and strict liability. The auto accident attorneys at Alexander Shunnarah & Associates work hard to ensure that all clients receive the representation they need with more than 40 years of combined experience in this specific area of law in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida, demonstrating an understanding of the different motor vehicle laws in each state.
Wrongful Death Attorneys
When a loved one’s life is lost as a result of negligence in the workplace, adequate legal representation is advised, specifically, a wrongful death attorney. Definitions vary from state to state with regards to wrongful death, so an experienced, knowledgeable attorney is important to properly move forward with individual circumstances. Our team of attorneys can assist those in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida, as we have for more than 40 years collectively and are therefore well-versed in each state’s wrongful death definitions.
Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
When a negligent or intentional act by another individual, or a dangerous or defective product, leads to a catastrophic injury, the victim has the right to a personal injury claim. In fact, this will be an integral factor in determining the victim’s quality of life moving forward, which includes medical care and support.
A catastrophic injury lawyer can assist with the recovery of compensation for the damage that the victim or his/her loved one has endured. This may include but is not limited to lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, permanent disability, medical bills, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Premises and General Liability Lawyers
In general, premises liability law refers to the legal principles that deem responsibility upon landowners and tenants in the event where another person is seriously injured on their property. Our premises and general liability lawyers can assist with the premises liability claims, which are commonly based on negligence. Slips and falls are the most common type of accident to result in premises liability, caused by things such as wet floors, unmarked obstacles, faulty stairs, snow, and ice.
Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
An injured employee can qualify for workers’ compensation benefits unless they fall into one of two exception categories, which are crew members on vessels and interstate railroad workers. All other types of employees are required to be eligible for workers’ compensation if they are injured on the job, per the federal law. It is important to note that workers’ compensation has nothing to do with fault; it is entitled regardless of who caused the accident, and Alexander Shunnarah & Associates will help you get your compensation.
Medical Malpractice Attorneys
When a medical professional fails to live up to the standard of care demanded of them as defined by applicable law, medical malpractice is the result. These instances turn into cases that quickly become complicated legal matters in which the assistance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney is highly advised.
An attorney will best handle a medical malpractice case with regards to the standard of care, where applicable statutes of limitation and other rules governing this area of law vary from state to state. Representation by a lawyer knowledgeable in the intricacies of medical malpractice claims in a given jurisdiction is in your best interest.
Products Liability and Class and Mass Action
Products liability holds accountability over those who are in the business of making and selling goods, specifically with regards to repercussions in the event of attempting to sell unlawfully defective products that could cause harm to others. When an individual is injured by a defective product, they may have rights against the manufacturer, distributor, supplier, retailer, and potentially others involved in making the product available to the public in the stream of commerce. What your rights are depends on applicable laws, so the help of an experienced attorney is advised.
Facing Class Action Lawsuits
Class action lawsuits are generally designed to help victims—including those who’ve been severely injured—to remedy injustices committed by powerful, multi-million dollar corporations and institutions. Other situations may consist of separate individuals within a large group who suffer limited damages where the cost of each individual lawsuit far outweighs the value of each claim.
Before any class action settlements for lawsuits may occur, the judge must give notice of the settlement to the class, allowing all who wish to be heard to state their positions and/or objections, and approve the settlement—including the attorneys’ fees—only if the settlement and fees are conclusively deemed fair and reasonable. Our experienced attorneys can explain the process for class action lawsuits and help you file a claim.
Family Law Attorneys
When handling family matters and domestic relations with regards to the law, an attorney can help the client manage the most sensitive subject matter. Whether you are arranging for a marriage, handling a divorce, or working on custody and visitation rights or support obligations, a family law attorney can help ease the process. With regards to custody and visitation rights specifically, a court generally arranges for the decision with a case-specific strategy that depends upon a variety of factors that are generally best argued by an experienced attorney.
Criminal Lawyers and Traffic Cases
Very few legal matters are as intensely life-altering as those where an individual finds oneself charged with a crime or another infraction of the law. This is because these alleged violations carry the potential of serious consequences. While it is a common belief that self-representation is all one needs in defense of a criminal charge, this is not the case. The realization often comes too late, with a substantially damaged case as the unfortunate result.
It is important to note that judges and juries are unlikely to assign the same weight or credibility to the arguments of a criminal defendant than they would with the same arguments presented by an attorney representing the defendant. Therefore, it is in one’s best interest to contact a criminal lawyer as soon as possible when facing a criminal or traffic case.
Bankruptcy Lawyers Represent Gulf Coast Clientele
In the event of a bankruptcy, whether it is for an individual or a failed business venture, several factors are to be carefully considered with long-term effects. Our attorneys can assist you with achieving minimal debt liability, while helping to also ease the pressure that accompanies a bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy is a federal issue. Upon consulting with a bankruptcy attorney, the details of both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 will be explained. While each has its own separate list of requirements, the end result will be in your favor. Don’t face bankruptcy alone; a professional lawyer on our team is able to help you make the most out of your situation.
If you have a case that falls into any of the 12 areas of law described above in Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, or Georgia, contact us today to move forward with the professional, experienced legal representation you deserve.
