What is Wrongful Death?
An Alabama wrongful death lawsuit is a claim filed against the negligent party responsible for the death of your loved one.
A claim can be filed if your relative died as a result of one of the following three circumstances:
- Deliberate Measures
Someone intentionally harmed your loved one.
Your relative’s death was caused by someone else’s careless behavior.
- Strict Liability
An unsafe consumer product or defective medical device caused your loved one’s death
Punitive Damages in Wrongful Death Cases
Unlike most states, Alabama awards only punitive damages in wrongful death cases. This means that juries calculate the value of your wrongful death lawsuit with the intent of punishing the parties who caused your family member’s death and discouraging similar negligence or intentional harm in the future.
