Knowledgeable Birmingham Personal Injury Lawyer Pursues Compensation for Clients

Skilled attorney assists injured individuals in Central Alabama and Northwest Florida

At the Law Offices of Thomas W. Bowron II, P.C. in Birmingham, I help injury victims who have been hurt in car crashes, due to doctor errors, through the use of defective products and in other hazardous incidents file personal injury claims. I have been an attorney for four decades and founded my law firm in 1998 to serve clients throughout Central Alabama and Northwest Florida. You can rely on me to put my strong legal knowledge to work in pursuing an advantageous resolution to your case.    

Personal injury cases my law firm handles

The following are some of the most common types of cases that I take on:

  • Trucking accidents, auto accidents and pedestrian accidents seriously injure thousands of people every year in Alabama and Florida. Traumatic brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries are not unusual in accidents involving vehicles traveling at high speeds. When distracted drivers, drunk drivers, speeding drivers or other dangerous drivers cause collisions, injured parties have the right to pursue compensation from the driver and, sometimes, other parties. For example, if you were hit by a commercial truck, the trucking company or a parts manufacturer may also be liable.
  • Products liability claims can be brought when defective products harm people. Product designers, manufacturers, marketers, retailers and additional parties in the supply chain may be liable for injuries depending upon the circumstances that contributed to the problem.   
  • When a doctor, nurse or another healthcare provider harms a patient, they could be sued for medical malpractice if it can be proven that they deviated from the accepted standard of medical care. Types of medical errors that may result in malpractice claims include failing to diagnose a condition or disease, medication errors and injuries inflicted during surgeries or childbirth.
  • If someone has died as a result of an accident caused by negligence, family members may be able to get compensation through a wrongful death claim. Personal representatives of the decedents’ estate must file these lawsuits in both Florida and Alabama (except in Alabama when the decedent is a minor, then parents can file).

No matter how you were injured, if the evidence shows it was due to the negligent acts of another person or an entity, I will counsel you about your options for obtaining a legal remedy.

Damages in personal injury claims

There are two general types of damages awarded in personal injury claims:

  • Economic damages — These include medical expenses, lost income and other quantifiable costs stemming from injuries.
  • Noneconomic damages — These types of damages are not as easy to quantify in monetary terms, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and mental trauma.

In cases of egregious negligence, judges may allow punitive damages to be awarded, which are meant to punish and deter at-fault parties.

When you trust me with your personal injury case, I will carefully assess all of your damages to arrive at a value range for your claim that will cover your losses now and in the future.
