Fighting for the Rights of the Injured

At Tommy James Law, we help people who were injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of others. We do this by filing personal injury lawsuits to help the injured claim compensation for the damages they suffered. That means our law firm does not handle custody cases or cases involving the prosecution or defense of a crime. However, our practice areas do include a wide range of civil court issues.

Personal Injury

When a person suffers an injury due to the actions of another person, the resulting lawsuit is a personal injury lawsuit. There are several different types of personal injury lawsuits, and the type of injury suffered usually determines which type of case you need to file.

Abuse, Neglect and Victims of Other Crimes

When an individual, staff member or institution inflicts emotional and /or physical harm on people in their care, we are here to help. Victims of this type of institutional abuse often feel ashamed and afraid after their ordeals, but they deserve compensation for their suffering. We help individuals seek that compensation. Though our firm cannot prosecute the monsters who hurt people in their care, we can help you take those abusers to civil court.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one is a tragic event that everyone will go through at one point or another. However, the hurt such a tragedy can cause when it is due to the negligence of another party can be devastating. For the families of the people who fall victim to these circumstances, we are here to help. Alabama law allows the survivors of wrongful death the opportunity to sue the party responsible for the tragedy. Depend on our experience to help you win the compensation you deserve if you have lost a loved one due to negligence.

Troubled Teen Industry

When a teen’s behavior reaches a certain point, many authorities will recommend some sort of intervention. One very common intervention is sending a misbehaving child to a behavioral modification facility. These institutions often claim they can help these troubled teens. However, these facilities are often understaffed, mismanaged and ill-equipped to properly handle the rehabilitation of a young person. When this is the case, teens sent to these facilities can face years of abuse and neglect. Our work helps give these teens a voice and forces facilities to pay for the harm they cause. We help teens abused by the troubled teen industry get compensation for their suffering.
