Car Accidents & Truck Accidents

Though car accident lawyers and truck accident attorneys are some of the most well-known legal professionals, it takes an experienced, aggressive car accident lawyer to attain the maximum compensation for clients in the shortest amount of time.

In filing a lawsuit for defective products, it is crucial that you seek medical attention for the damage caused by the defective product, document all losses because of the defective product, and contact an experienced defective product attorney immediately to preserve your rights and attain the maximum compensation you or a loved one deserve.

Wrongful Death, Negligence & Wantonness

Many clients seeking to file a wrongful death lawsuit want to know who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. In Alabama, someone with a relationship to the person killed or who represents that person’s estate can bring action for the death.


A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed on behalf of a loved one whose death was caused by the negligence of another. This includes but is not limited to deaths occurring in or because of car accidents, truck accidents, and defective products.

If you have recently lost a loved one due to the negligence of others, contact wrongful death lawsuit attorney Jana Russell Garner today for a free initial consultation.


Estate & Trust Litigation

Can an estate file a lawsuit? The answer is yes, and it is very common. After a loved one has passed, their assets should be distributed according to the law or their last will and testament.


When assets are not distributed appropriately, litigation can result. Litigation can also arise if the person handling the estate does not do what they should. Other types of litigation include:

  • Fraud, undue influence, or duress in getting a will or trust drafted or changed

  • Questions about whether a will or trust is authentic, genuine, or enforceable

  • Whether someone should serve as an executor, administrator, or trustee

  • Recovery of the estate or trust property

  • Dividing, selling, or leasing estate or trust property, including timber

  • Omitted heirs or beneficiaries

  • Accounting for estate or trust property

  • Wrongful conduct by executors, administrators, or trustees

Estate litigation attorney Jana Russell Garner is experienced in estate and trust litigation including those of any size for administrators, beneficiaries, executors, or other individuals involved in (or potentially left out of) the estate.


Fraud, Misrepresentation & Breach of Warranty

What is a fraud and breach of warranty claim? Fraud occurs when someone misrepresents a material fact and, relying on that statement,  action is taken (or not) that causes damages.

Fraud can occur in many different settings, individual or commercial. If someone commits fraud while acting on behalf of a business, that business can be liable. Fraud can occur in many different transactions, such as purchases, leases, and sales of consumer or commercial property, vehicles, or equipment. Or it can occur in obtaining services, such as loans, insurance, or other transactions.


Another type of fraud is called suppression. That occurs when someone fails to disclose something. A breach of warranty occurs when something fails to perform or function as it should according to a written warranty (or one implied by law). These can occur in consumer and commercial settings involving vehicles, equipment, and other property.

Employment Litigation

If you have experienced wrongful termination or workplace discrimination based on age, race, gender, sexual preference, pregnancy, disability, or religion, it is crucial that you hire an experienced employment lawyer to preserve your claim and counsel you on how to file a discrimination lawsuit against your employer.

Not every employment matter can be litigated; however, when they can, they are often complex and involve knowledge and experience in employment law. In addition to wrongful termination and workplace discrimination, attorney Jana Russell Garner also assists clients with issues involving overtime pay, breach of contract, and non-compete agreements.


Property Disputes

  • Landlord and tenant

  • Breach of lease

  • Trespass

  • Improper timber harvest

  • Oil and gas leases

  • Timber issues, including leases, wrongful cutting, timber deeds

  • Clouds on title

  • Heir property

  • Liens

  • Boundary line disputes

  • Breach of sales contracts

  • Breach of purchase agreements
