Wrongful Death What Can We Do


Every Alabama wrongful death accident is different. Wrongful death cases are governed by the Alabama wrongful death statute codified at Alabama Code Section 6-5-410 (1975). Evidence should be preserved as soon as possible after an accident. The accident scene and/or vehicle should be inspected and photographed. Witnesses should be identified and interviewed. If your loved one has been killed in an accident, call Huntsville, Alabama, law firm Ferguson & Ferguson to learn about your legal rights. Call now for a no-obligation, Free Consultation with one of our wrongful death attorneys. If you are unable to come to our office, we can visit you at your home or hospital room. Call 256-534-3435. We are here to help.

First and foremost, we will meet with you for an initial consultation at no cost. We can discuss with you whether the facts of your car accident are the type of facts that will make for a good case. We can never make predictions or guarantees, but the Ferguson Law Firm has been in the business of personal injury law for over thirty combined years, and once you’ve had your free consultation, you should have some idea of how we would expect things to proceed in a case like yours.


We take nearly all of our cases on a contingency fee, which means that our fees are paid out of your recovery at the end of your case. In other words, you don’t have to pay our fee up front on an hourly basis. (How many people can afford to do that?) Also, we agree to advance the costs of litigation in most of our cases. Gathering medical records, long-distance calls, filing fees, depositions, and other costs of litigation can add up quickly. Paying these costs along the way and out of pocket is difficult for many people, The Ferguson & Ferguson Law Firm advances these litigation costs as the case goes along. These costs are reimbursed to the Ferguson & Ferguson Law Firm when the case is settled or otherwise resolved.


One of the things most clients tell us is so difficult after the death of a loved one is that the other driver’s insurance adjuster calls often, putting pressure on them to settle quickly. Dealing with death, injuries, property damage, missed work, doctor visits and then an adjuster calling and asking how much you want to settle is overwhelming for most people. Once you have hired our law firm to handle your case, the insurance adjusters are not allowed to call you directly; they have to go through us. You can concentrate on healing, getting physically better, getting your life in order, and let us deal with evaluating your case, handling the adjusters and many other details. That is what we do.


The attorneys and staff at the Ferguson & Ferguson Law Firm have extensive skill and experience in handling cases involving death. We can never make any guarantees about the value of your case or the final outcome. However, we settle cases (many times even prior to filing a lawsuit), we mediate or arbitrate cases, and we try cases when settlement isn’t possible. We have experience in all of these areas. Resolution is important to everyone, and we can see that you get some closure and some finality in your situation, and we do most of the work. Call now. Call 256-534-3435 or 1-800-752-1998.
