Nothing hurts more than the loss of a loved one. A wrongful death lawsuit cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help get compensation for spouses, children, and loved ones who are left behind and punish and deter the wrongdoer to prevent the same thing from happening to someone else.
Under Alabama law, a Wrongful Death is a death resulting from the fault of another person or company. Wrongful deaths may occur as a result of any of the following:
- Car & Truck Accidents
- Fires & Explosions
- Defective Products & Drugs
- Premises Liability, Slip & Fall
- Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
- Work-Related Injuries
- Medical Malpractice [Link to Practice Area Overview]
Damages for wrongful death in Alabama are “punitive” only. This means that the jury may only award damages to preserve human life and to deter similar wrongful conduct.
