  • Wrongful Death

    Losing a loved one because of wrongful conduct is a terrible tragedy. Not only does it cause emotional damage to the family, but may often lead to financial crisis as well. Alabama’s wrongful death statute has two primary purposes. It is intended to compensate the survivors for the death of their loved one and to hold the corporation or person accountable so that others will be less likely to engage in the same wrongful conduct. In other words, it compensates the family for the terrible loss and it makes our community safer by punishing the responsible party. The lawyers at Patterson Comer have spent 20 years representing the victims of wrongful death. We can help families navigate this terrible tragedy. Please call us at 205-759-3939. We are here to help.

  • Car Accidents

    It is a fact of life that we live in a time when there are more and more vehicles on the road without the necessary community infrastructure to handle the traffic. Throw in distracted driving from cell phones along with overcrowded highways and the roads are downright dangerous to travel. Our firm is actively engaged every day in helping the victims of car accidents recover their losses. Many of our clients come to us after being overwhelmed with frustration at the responsible party’s insurance company. If you or a loved one has been injured in a collision, we can help you to steer through the traffic jam. Please call us at 205-759-3939.

  • Nursing Home Abuse

    It is an unfortunate truth that abuse and neglect occurs every day in nursing homes throughout the country. When a loved one in a nursing home suffers in this way, it can take a terrible toll on the patient and the family. We have handled numerous cases involving claims of nursing home abuse. Please call us at 205-759-3939 if you suspect that your loved one is being abused or neglected.

  • Mental Health Care Abuse or Mistreatment

  • Motorcycle Accidents

    Every year, we see more and more motorcycle cases in our office. Motorcyclists are so vulnerable to distracted drivers. What might have been a simple fender bender can quickly turn deadly for a motorcyclist. Motorcycles have an equal right to the roadway along with cars. We all need to exercise vigilance when driving, not just to avoid a collision, but to avoid a terrible tragedy. If you were injured on your motorcycle by the misconduct of another, please call us at 205-759-3939.

  • 18 Wheeler Collisions

    Our firm has handled countless 18 wheeler collisions. Unlike a car accident, 18 wheeler litigation usually involves federal rules and regulations that do not apply to cars and trucks. Our firm has had tremendous success for our clients throughout Alabama on these cases. If you or a loved one has been injured by a tractor-trailer, please call 205-759-3939.

    It is all too common for a person to leave home on a routine shopping trip only to suffer serious injury while on the premises of a store or business. We have handled numerous premises liability cases involving every type of business from grocery stores, big box stores, even amusement parks. We take a very unique approach to such cases not generally used in the legal community. This approach has given us an edge in handling cases where our client has been hurt while on business premises.

  • Nuisance Claims

    The lawyers at Patterson Comer have for years represented many business owners. Most businessmen and women are interested only in running their businesses in a way that is beneficial to their community. However, there are isolated instances when a business is operated in such an inconsiderate way that it begins to interfere with a neighboring homeowner’s quiet enjoyment of their property. Your home is your most valuable and important possession. Whenever a business opens near your home and begins operating in such a way as to damage the peace and quiet enjoyment of your property, it may substantially lower your home’s value. Our firm has handled many such claims on behalf of our clients. If a business is operating near you in such a way that substantially interferes with your enjoyment of your property, you may have also suffered a damage to the value of your home. Please call our firm at 205-759-3939 if you have experienced any such issues with neighboring businesses.

  • Business Disputes

    As small business owners ourselves, our firm recognizes the economic harm that a business can suffer due to the conduct of others. Business disputes lead to lost work time, lost profits and the fear of bankruptcy. If your business has been harmed by the conduct of another person or business, we would be more than happy to review the case for you. We have been very successful in helping business owners recover their losses when they have been harmed by the misconduct of others. Call us at 205-759-3939.

  • Consumer and Business Fraud

    It has often been said, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” This is a fairly accurate representation of the law of fraud in Alabama. While most businesses are honest and caring members of our community, the lawyers at Patterson Comer sometimes encounter unscrupulous businesses that are trying to cheat people out of hard-earned money. Whether it is insurance fraud or business fraud, the lawyers at Patterson Comer are here for you and would like to speak to you about any fraudulent practices that have harmed you or your family. Please call us at 205-759-3939.

  • Medical Device and Drug Litigation

    It is miraculous how far medicine has come. Medical providers are performing miracles today that were not considered even 10 years ago. We are thankful for all of these advances that make our families safer. But, in a few cases, drug makers and medical device manufacturers create dangerous products. Many times, rather than immediately disclose these problems to the public, the manufacturers make a financial decision to hide the true facts from their patients and keep the profits for the company. This is a horrifying business strategy that results in patient horror stories. There are countless stories of devices and drugs that were not safe for the market but were released to the public anyway because these companies were more concerned with the response of investors than with the safety of their patients. Our firm has handled cases involving bad devices such as artificial hips, artificial knees, vaginal mesh, hernia mesh, and numerous other dangerous medical devices. We have also handled dangerous drug claims. If you or a loved one has experienced injury or harm from a dangerous drug or medical device, we are here to help. Call us at 205-759-3939.
