Alabama's Wrongful Death Statute
Due to Alabama's unique Wrongful Death Statute, the only damages that
may be recovered are punitive. Punitive damages are designed to punish
the culpable party and deter the same conduct from occurring again. Unfortunately,
this statute excludes the recovery of compensatory damages, such as loss
of income, pain and suffering, and medical bills. However, if a lawsuit
is filed prior to death, it is possible to recover compensatory damages.
This ensures that the victim has the ability to recover from the pain
and suffering caused by the accident, and have their medical expenses
covered prior to death.

Due to a statute of limitations under Alabama law, deadlines exist that
prevent a lawsuit from being filed if not done in a timely manner. The
statute of limitations in Alabama is two years from the date of death.
If a loved one has died due to the wrongful actions of another individual
or corporation, it is crucial to consult with an experienced attorney
as soon as possible.
