Dothan Alabama personal injury lawyer Aaron Gartlan of the Gartlan Injury Law settled a law suit in the Circuit Court of Houston County on behalf of a young Dothan Alabama man that sustained a serious neck injury in a car wreck. The suit was filed against the driver of the vehicle in which he was a passenger. As a general rule, Alabama Law precludes recovery against the owner or driver of an automobile for injuries and damages as a result of an accident in which you are a passenger.

Through extensive investigation and trial preparation, Aaron Gartlan was able to find an exception to Alabama’s Guest Statute and settle the case prior to trial. Other attorneys might not have taken this case because of Alabama’s Guest Statute. Therefore, it is important to get a second opinion if you or a loved one have been injured or killed in an automobile accident and the case is rejected by another attorney. A complete and thorough investigation is crucial. Aaron Gartlan takes great pride in developing cases through extensive investigation and trial preparation and is available to consult with you even if your case has been turned down by another attorney.
