Simms & Associates is widely regarded as one of the top personal injury law firms in the State of Alabama. The firm was founded in 1999 by lead attorney Derek Simms after gaining years of insight as an insurance industry insider. Mr. Simms began his career by landing a prestigious internship with the Arizona State Senate Banking and Insurance Committee, and testified before the Committee on the subject of mandatory liability insurance when he was just 23 years old. The experience led to a position as an adjuster with a major automobile insurance company. His performance was recognized with numerous promotions before reaching the level of Senior Adjuster in less than one year.  The personal injury attorneys at Simms & Associates rely on Mr. Simms’ knowledge and experience to achieve the best possible outcome for the firm’s personal injury clients.

Simms & Associates will provide you with firsthand knowledge of how auto insurance companies operate. Insurers have specific methods of evaluating cases to determine their worth. Some insurance companies fear litigation – others do not. Simms & Associates can help guide you through the complex legal landscape to arrive at the best possible outcome in your personal injury case. Even if you have received a letter from an insurance company denying your claim on the basis of “contributory negligence,” Simms & Associates may be able to recover money damages on your behalf.
