Prince, Glover & Hayes was established in 1979 by Senior Partner Robert F. Prince in the Prince-Searcy Building in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We are a civil litigation firm concentrating in personal injury, environmental law, and insurance fraud. Under the leadership of its Senior Partner, Bob Prince, the firm has earned some of the largest jury verdicts ever awarded in the state of Alabama. Our firm has taken on powerful special interests, including large insurance companies, large trucking companies, and corporations with lots of money to spend on their lawyers and their experts. Our verdicts and settlements prove that we are not afraid of these special interests and that we will fight all the way to the courthouse if we have to in order to make sure our clients get the justice they deserve.
HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED DUE TO AN AUTO ACCIDENT?
Our Tuscaloosa personal injury law firm has the resources to hire the experts necessary to get to the bottom of exactly how collisions take place. Determining the cause of collisions requires bringing in professionals to investigate the accident, talk to witnesses, inspect the cars and trucks involved, and examine the scene to gather evidence.
WHAT IS A MASS TORT?
Mass torts are civil actions that have many plaintiffs involved against one or several defendant corporations. If a toxic chemical is released and an entire neighborhood is impacted, each neighbor may have different injuries (one neighbor may have experienced skin rashes and another may have experienced respiratory problems). Since they weren’t injured in the same way, it is difficult to form one class for a class action suit. These types of situations are handled as mass tort actions.
HAVE YOU BEEN A VICTIM OF INSURANCE FRAUD?
Prince Glover Hayes has carved a special niche in the complex area of Insurance Fraud and Bad Faith and is a West Alabama leader in representing clients who are victims of unfair settlements or wrongfully denied claims. We never represent insurance companies and only represent individuals who have been treated unfairly by their insurance carriers.
HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED DUE TO A DEFECTIVELY DESIGNED OR MANUFACTURED PRODUCT? WERE YOU INJURED BECAUSE OF INADEQUATE INSTRUCTIONS OR WARNINGS REGARDING THE USE OF A PRODUCT?
The attorneys at PGH have handled a wide variety of lawsuits involving defective products.
HAVE YOU BEEN EXPOSED TO A TOXIC SUBSTANCE?
Through successful prosecution, Prince Glover Hayes has gained a national reputation for prevailing in toxic tort and environmental litigation cases. We understand the immense challenge of protecting families and land from environmental abuse and we take that challenge seriously. Toxic tort and environmental litigation is an extremely complex area of law, often requiring scientific experts, such as toxicologists and certified industrial hygienists to provide analysis and evaluation. Our years of experience in this area have assisted us in establishing teams of qualified experts, fundamental not only in proving environmental negligence and abuse, but also in serving our commitment to justice. By securing significant verdicts and settlements against large corporations involved in toxic abuse, we create a safer world.
HAVE YOU LOST A LOVED ONE BECAUSE OF SOMEONE ELSE’S ACTIONS?
When someone is killed as a result of another person’s negligence or wrongdoing, his or her family is confronted with a devastating loss. Oftentimes, this loss is accompanied by financial stress, especially when the deceased was the key income provider. The Alabama Wrongful Death Statute is unique in that any money damages awarded are entirely punitive (designed to punish the wrongdoer), rather than compensatory. However, any recovery by the family (or other designated personal representative) can, of course, be used to compensate for lost income, lost future earnings and to offset expenses. On an emotional level, a wrongful death lawsuit brings not only justice, but also closure because the family knows steps have been taken to prevent others from experiencing a similar fate at the hands of those responsible.
HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED BY SOMEONE ELSE’S ACTIONS?
While car collisions are the most common type of personal injury case, we also handle other types of personal injury including slip-and-fall, injuries at home and work, premises liability, product liability and general negligence cases.
HAVE YOU OR A LOVED ONE DEVELOPED CANCERS AND OTHER DETRIMENTAL HEALTH EFFECTS AFTER LIVING AT CAMP LEJEUNE BETWEEN 1953-1987?
Camp Lejeune's drinking water was contaminated with several harmful chemicals, including benzene, vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE) between 1953 and 1987. Estimates state that the United States Marine Corp Base's water quality affected over a million military members, civilian employees and their children. The United States Government denied responsibility for the high illness rates on the North Carolina base for a long time.
