A Alabama wrongful death is a death due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence. Every state has a civil wrongful death statute or set of statutes, which establish the procedures for bringing wrongful death actions. In most states, the decedent’s immediate family members (surviving spouses and children, and sometimes parents or siblings) may bring action. Wrongful death claims may arise out of car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, property negligence, and other incidents of negligence.
Time is of the essence in Alabama wrongful death actions. Preserving evidence and identifying defendants are key factors in many of the underlying accidents involving death cases. This requires retaining investigators and experts to commence investigations and evaluations as promptly as possible.
