Gerald Brooks has always been driven by the values of respect, hard work, and fairness. As a founding attorney at the Serious Injury Law Group, he has earned praise from his clients, accolades from his peers, and multi-million-dollar results for those accident victims who need it most. In May, Brooks’ dedication to justice also earned him special recognition from Birmingham Magazine as a Top Attorney for 2020.

“I am extremely honored to be featured in Birmingham Magazine for my work on behalf of those who have been seriously injured through no fault of their own,” Brooks says. “Every day, my firm puts people first, fighting for the rights of individuals and families who find themselves facing off against large insurance companies and deep-pocketed corporations. I am proud of the work we do and the difference we make in people’s lives.”

Each year, Birmingham Magazine conducts a peer review of lawyers in the Birmingham area, polling nearly 4,000 local attorneys and affiliates registered with the Birmingham Bar Association. The goal is to select the top local attorneys in more than 30 practice areas. Brooks was recognized for his extraordinary work in the field of personal injury law.

About Gerald Brooks

Gerald Brooks grew up in Livingston, a tiny town on the western side of Alabama’s Black Belt. He graduated from the University of Alabama in 1998 with an undergraduate degree in business, then went on to earn his law degree from there in 2002.

Brooks began his legal career at a Birmingham insurance defense firm, where he learned how insurance companies fight to minimize or deny personal injury claims. Although the experience proved valuable, Brooks felt his true calling was in representing the individuals and families on the other side. So he made the leap to the plaintiff side, joining a law firm in Montgomery that focused on personal injury law.

After a few years, Brooks and his old law school friend Chuck James decided to join forces to form their own law firm, now known as the Serious Injury Law Group. As the name suggests, the firm focuses exclusively on cases involving serious injuries, including:

  • Wrongful Death
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Trucking Accidents
  • Defective Drugs
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Nursing Home Abuse
