Attorney Jonathan Coleman Sapp can answer your questions, explain your legal options and help you determine how best to move forward. If you feel that a person or business has contributed to the death of your loved one, it is important to know that Alabama has a fairly restrictive statute of limitations for wrongful death claims; so you must file a legal action in a relatively short time to preserve your right to bring a claim.
Circumstances Leading To Wrongful Death Claims
A fatal accident may occur in any number of ways. Car, truck and motorcycle accidents form the basis of a significant number of wrongful death claims. Whenever a death occurs due to the negligent or wrongful actions of another, the family members may file a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful death claims provide financial relief to children, spouses and parents of deceased accident victims. Unlike most personal injury cases in which a plaintiff may seek damages for medical bills, lost wages or other forms of compensatory damages, a plaintiff in an Alabama wrongful death case may only receive punitive damages.
