Wrongful Death In Alabama: What To Know
A wrongful death claim allows the surviving relatives of someone killed in an accident to recover compensation for their damages. Some of the most common damages in these claims include:
- Lost income
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Punitive damages
Not just anyone can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Only the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate may file the suit. If the decedent did not have a personal representative, the court will appoint one. As experienced car accident and personal injury lawyers who have handled thousands of claims, we can explore your options and help you understand your rights as a surviving relative.
Do Not Miss The Wrongful Death Deadline
Alabama has a strict two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits. You must file your claim within two years of the date of your loved one’s death. If you do not take action within this period, you lose the right to recover compensation through a lawsuit. The sooner you contact our car accident and fatal injury attorneys, the better. As experienced litigators, we appear in court about every 10 days. We handle all claims time-efficiently — and have won 90% of the claims we litigated.
