Years ago, slogans like “You’re in Good Hands” and “Like a Good Neighbor” really meant something. Unfortunately, these days, the auto insurance industry has ditched good customer care and replaced it with huge CEO salaries and corporate bonuses. 

Put simply, the auto insurance giants now put their own financial profits over a duty to care for and protect car wreck injury victims.  How do they get away with this? 

  • By denying as many claims as they can
  • Paying as little as possible for serious injury claims

Consequently, it is now more important than ever to have an experienced, successful and reputable law firm on your side to fight for you after you’ve been injured in a car crash in Alabama.

Car Crashes Take A Terrible Toll On Alabamans

Drive Safe Alabama reports some sobering information regarding car crashes in the state. The latest official statistics (from 2019) show:

  • A crash was reported in the state every three minutes and 18 seconds
  • 930 people were killed on state roadways
  • For each traffic fatality, 50 others received severe injuries
  • Nearly 50,000 people suffered nonfatal injuries requiring medical treatment

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the cost of fatal crashes in Alabama alone in 2018 amounted to $11 million in medical costs and $1.5 billion in lost wages and other expenses. That’s where we come in. For nearly two decades, The DiLorenzo Law Firm has fought and won against the big auto insurance companies, and our track record stands out.
