Personal Injury or Wrongful Death

“Wrongful Death” in Alabama is a legal term that refers to the situations when a person dies due to negligence or violation of the standard of care of another. Wrongful death cases may arise in a variety of circumstances, including car and truck wrecks, on-the-job accidents, and nursing home abuse. The firm’s goal is to make sure that the deceased’s loved ones are protected for the future.

Our death statute is unlike any other in the union: we do not compensate the survivors, we punish the wrong-doer. In times of grief, it is obviously difficult for the family members to understand the importance of a prompt investigation of the circumstances of death, preservation of evidence and identification of responsible parties.
