Mobile Wrongful Death Attorneys
Alabama Fatal Car Accident Lawyers
A "wrongful death" is the death of someone due to the carelessness of another person or company. If you are a close family member mourning the loss of a victim of wrongful death, we extend our condolences.
We would also like to offer you information on your rights. You may have a strong case for a lawsuit against the negligent party.
In Alabama the law provides for action to punish the careless or negligent party. The personal representative of the deceased must bring the lawsuit, and the proceeds go to the family of the deceased person. The law in other states focuses on compensating you for what you have lost, whereas Alabama law seeks to punish the wrongdoer.
Therefore, you need an attorney experienced in investigating all aspects of the incident and causes, and including each and every party who contributed to the accident. This may include the manufacturer of a defective part in the car involved, for example. You need an attorney who can illustrate the degree of negligence and the degree of suffering the defendant has caused.
Our law firm serves clients who have lost a loved one in almost any kind of incident or accident. The most common are:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
Sadly, some families are so devastated by the loss that they are unable to obtain necessary information on their legal options. You must file a claim within two years, under Alabama law, or your rights will be lost.
