Losing a loved one is one of the most painful and difficult things that any of us will ever have to encounter. The situation becomes even more devastating when a friend or family member is taken away as a result of someone else’s negligence. A wrongful death lawsuit cannot bring back a brother, sister, parent or child, nor can any compensation replace a loved one. It can however, help family members move forward from tragedy with at least some measure of financial security.

We understand what families go through when they lose a loved one and we are well versed in the intricacies of Alabama wrongful death law.

Wrongful death law in Alabama is complicated. The peculiarities of Alabama’s Wrongful Death Statute require an experienced litigator to successfully navigate. One important aspect to keep in mind is that a surviving family member bringing a wrongful death action may only seek punitive damages, which are intended to punish the responsible party and deter others from engaging in similarly negligent behavior. The family member cannot seek compensatory damages, those designed to cover the economic loss related to a person’s death, including medical bills and lost wages.
