Coden is a small unincorporated fishing village near Bayou la Batre, Alabama, United States, approximately 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Mobile. The name of the town is derived from the French "Coq d'Inde," meaning "Turkey. " At the beginning of the Twentieth Century, the area was known as a resort, with the Rolston Hotel drawing guests from around the region. The hotel was destroyed by a hurricane in the early Twentieth Century, and the community fell on hard times. Today, it is again attracting those from other areas seeking the cool ocean breezes and tranquility that lured so many visitors nearly a century ago. Today, Coden's lure is the gentle sound of the waters of Portersville Bay, fishing, and relaxation. Fresh seafood is available daily on Shell Belt Road from fishing boats returning to Bayou Coden. Coden lies on the southern shore of the mainland, just across the Mississippi Sound from Dauphin Island and is one stop along Alabama's Coastal Birding Trail.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury includes injuries to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. If the negligence of another person can be proved, the person who is injured may be entitled to monetary compensation from that person who was negligent. Attorneys often represent clients on a contingency basis, in which the attorneys fee is a percentage of the compensation the plaintiff receives, payable when the case is resolved. Cases involving people who have suffered an injury for which someone else (an individual or business) may be legally liable -- may include injuries caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and emotional distress.
