Justin A. Lackey, attorney at The Lackey Law Firm, recently settled a car wreck case for $400,000.00. The Lackey client was injured when the driver of the car in which the client was riding lost control. The crash, which occurred in North Alabama, resulted in a settlement which encompassed the policy limits of all available insurance coverage. If you or a loved one has been injured as a passenger in a single vehicle accident, your rights may be affected by Alabama’s Guest Passenger Statute. This law provides that drivers cannot be sued by a non-paying passenger (or “guest passenger”) for simple negligence. However, there are legal strategies which may bypass this law, depending upon the facts of your case. Please call Justin A. Lackey at 256-259-3929 to schedule a free consultation.
