Practice Areas




  Your phenomenal car accident caused  injuries. Now, you ultimately have three "P's" starting your new needs: pains, problems and predicaments. When a powerful collision happens, you see doctors to help your pain and injury. You need to heal and to deal with the legal ways to live with these new problems. That is what an experienced lawyer generously does for you here. You have legal problems in Alabama around Tuscaloosa that you need to have taken care of.  Right now you need a doctor to get you better where the physical injuries hurt you. The injury is a place you need good breakthroughs for in both kinds of legal and insurance problems too.

    With a doctor, you try to find the most generous and best one you can. On the lawyer side after the collision, you need help now so you can replace lost income while you work on lost abilities through injuries. To find fairness now, the lawyer with you is looking for as  much insurance as can be reached that is legally possible. The laws must be used to cure your insurance problem that can help you to deal with the physical limits you have now.


    Often an insurance company must be made to help those with serious injuries. This lawyer goes to work early in  claims for you as powerful as can be found in the law. The car accident lawyer needs to do intense and invaluable case work for you. In this time, the lawyer like me follows and leads you to know and get payment whenever possible for  your doctors care for you. Beginning when  you can talk right after the injuries from the car accident, you need to discover who can help you to look for the money you need now and also later.  The lawyer works to make life better for you.


    This is Dennis Harmon - one of the lawyers who has helped people make a better life after they have had accidents, whenever this can be done. Doing this thirty years does give me a powerful advantage after learning proven techniques over all these many years.

    I have studied and continue to help people with bad permanent injuries that must stop working for a year or even forever when I help them  with Social Security disability. These days I go forward with as powerful a fight as I know how to, against the  insurance companies and the federal government when the injured person needed both. If these cases also involve your job, I will do this also as one joined fight for you or I will bring lawyer friends I  link together as a joint case by more than one. Here is the skilled approach so every issue on a case can be pushed together on all points for you.


    With your lawyer, I will work with you as we put together the tactics you need. The work on these honest-to-goodnesss cases is something I help with folks who can be overwhelmed on their own as they try to do medical and legal work.

Tuscaloosa Car Accident Lawyer, Dennis Harmon

 Car Accident Turns into Car Insurance inTuscaloosa

Now we're going to talk about the car accidents in Tuscaloosa soon below but you must start with insurance  right now -  everything about insurance.  It is the car insurance from the other folks where your money is. If you don't start and end on everyone's car insurances, the other car's  insurance, the trucks small and huge insurances, motorcycle insurance, then you get little or nothing. Not your best.

My work is about the law.  Lawyers  at insurances  companies have set up the way to make the law work best for their own people.Think about it: how do they figure out how to limit money to you on your case? The insurance assistants are trying to match the car crash law and injuries in the best way for them. The other companies insurances first tries are only to pay you as little as possible. Your own insurance company can go all sorts of ways to minimize you and help  them. Folks on my side of this type of  work make the most money from the insurance for you that we can.

You may want to talk about the other folks who caused the problem but that's not who handles it. That's only part of whats going on. It's the insurance companies working  for them. You will not often get money directly from the person only.  Your insurance company may get some from them. You get paid by the insurance checks. Period.

The world today in Tuscaloosa as well as anybody in Alabama handles everything thru legal courts with the car insurance money almost every time. Even if the case is in court that is the insurance folk. The insurance company name is not on the files but that's where the defense and some of the sued folks can be.  Better than 99.5% in court settles this day without a trial. The insurance settles either a discussion itself with injured or the judges order us  to discuss  settlement - this almost always settles there if it hasn't already.  Even when there is a trial the injured wins, so help me this just starts the settlement discussion again.

These car insurance cases often require a lawyer to be there for you. The insurance companies have motivation to set up their advantages before this accident happened and are moving in to help themselves. Some of these advantages were created before you were born.

Your case and settlement is about getting the other persons insurance company to pay you the money. The law tells us how to show why the money should be paid.

If you have any questions about this - probably many - call me. The numbers are  205-342-3622.  You can call with any questions to ask  or come to talk me in person. If you want to come in to talk the address is: 422 Paul W Bryant Dr, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401 . Please make sure I'm in town when you come since I go to three offices, courts all the time and other projects so make sure you get in the right state and county but come.

Now for your next issues if you're ready for that.


    You need answers and questions. Call me. I don't charge for the questions as we decide what, if anything, you need from me or any other lawyer. So call. Or for that matter, text back by Check in now or after you see how I spoke and wrote below. After   30+ years working law - and seeing about everything at one time or a number in car accident issues- I probably have ides and answers that help you.  Call for any help I can give you.

    I'm betting you will need me to help when you have to depend on the insurance of the person who hit you or your own insurance if the  hitter doesn't have any. That's when you need the lawyer. Call me as we look out for you.

     That's another point about law. Your lawyer has to help you. That is the law. Use it and me to happily be your lawyer.

Your car accident can even go worse with the other insurance
    I've been a Tuscaloosa car accident lawyer in Tuscaloosa for quite a while, I've practiced in more than thirty years helping the injured folks. After thirty years,  insurance handles injury cases a whole lot differently than they did in those early years.   If you want a lawyer to challenge the insurance on the other side, call now. If you want to know the car accident work I do and problems for you in Tuscaloosa, keep reading and call me as questions come to you.
   The problem you face is the other person's insurance. Talk to your insurance person anytime. Your company is generally on your side.  The other insurance company is looking to help itself and maybe its insurance owner but they are not on your side. That insurance company  calls you to get answers from you - it is bestfor them to do that as it helps  them save  money or may even block you entirely from getting any. So my first suggestion to you is to call a lawyer - me or someone else - and talk with them before you ever talk to the other insurance company. Do not start talking to the other side's insurance until you have some advice. If you tell the other insurance company the wrong things, the wrong way or wrong information, you will  hurt yourself right away.  The insurance person will limit or block your money if you give them a way they can. 

   For Tuscaloosa, like any other town, insurance companies  have computer programs with information of  settlements and jury verdicts. So, the computers tell the insurance what  your case is worth to them. The computer tells the insurance worker what it can pay you.  So, here's what happens: 1) you give info to the computer, 2) the computer takes your case to match its cases, 3)  the computer then tells the insurance person how much it can pay you. Insurance will deal with you on what the computers say about Tuscaloosa car accidents or anywhere the injury accident happened.  Your case is just one more  car accident mixed together and judged by a computer. And, that is done in large part by evidence you offer early on the phone when they call you.

    When you are in an auto accident  in Tuscaloosa and West Alabama,  these insurance companies try to get to you as fast as they can for a statement by you. It can use the statement from you to put your injury in the lowest category for the computers and offer you the bare minimum.   It's also trying to take whatever you say to  keep the car accident pay lower. If you have already done this, you really do need a lawyer to straighten this out for you.

     If you can, wait until you have a car accident lawyer before you give a recorded statement to the insurance company.   Otherwise, the insurance company that is against you will create a record  by their trained person against you. It can be used against you in court or  hammer down the value of your case in a settlement.  

    Don't settle until your doctor has cleared you because you're as good as you can get. If you have permanent injury now, don't settle until everything is proven.  If you settle early, you can't go back if the injury is worse than it first appeared or it takes you longer to heal than expected. Insurance companies  should pay for future pain and suffering as well as future medical bills and loss of income if this applies. But, if you settle, the case ends. Don't do that too soon. Talk to me at my Tuscaloosa law office (or some other competent lawyer) before signing the papers to settle the case.

    This is just the beginning of the car accident case where you have been injured. Actually, this is only the first few days while you are still hurting and taking pain medicines. It gets more complicated and involved as the case goes on. The claims adjusters calling you are getting a head start on preparing their case. You will have to prepare your own case or have someone help you to prove to the insurance company how badly you were hurt. The insurance company is not really sympathetic to you but it does have to pay attention to the evidence a judge or jury might see. More than 99% of these cases settle somewhere down the line but they will settle based on what can be proven. What is needed to prove a case and how to get the evidence is what a lawyer routinely does.

    The next steps, if done right, are building the best case to match the insurance companies. This means proving all the damages to you fairly and justly. Nothing fancy, just hard solid work backed by knowledge of the law is what you need so that an injured person is treated fairly. 

    If this makes sense to you, call now. Even if you have already started trying to work on your own case with the insurance company, we  will see where to go next. The consultation is free. If you want to hire me, fine we'll talk about that beginning without payment so lets see what you need.

Call or email now for your free consultation.
