Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe the death of someone that occurred as a result of the negligence or intentional actions of another person.

In Alabama, wrongful death lawsuits can be filed by the deceased person’s heirs or personal representative on behalf of the deceased person’s estate.

Alabama has a two-year statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit, meaning that it must be filed within two years of the date of the person’s death.

The lawsuit may seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses, funeral costs, and loss of income, as well as damages for the pain and suffering of the deceased person.

The amount of compensation awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit in Alabama may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case.

Factors that may be considered include the age, earning potential, and life expectancy of the deceased person, as well as any emotional and psychological trauma suffered by the deceased person’s family members.
