  • What Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Case?

    Filing a wrongful death claim in Alabama is a different than in other states. Alabama is a more restrictive state, and only allows punitive damages to be recovered for a wrongful death. Damages are not expected to compensate the heirs for the loss of a loved one, and do not replace income.

    Instead, they are responsible for punishing wrongdoing and to discourage or otherwise try to prevent the negligent act from occurring again. Any wrongful death action must be brought by the deceased’s personal representative This may appear to make providing for your family financially difficult, but a seasoned attorney in Birmingham can successfully portray the negligent act to give you the best chance at justice.
