Personal Injuries Can be Costly

Most people have either personally gone through the experience of being injured by another person’s careless acts or know someone else who has. Hospital bills, lost wages, and emotional distress are just some of the lasting effects of such an injury. These costs can add up fast.

 

According to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, the average cost of one day in an Alabama hospital is more than $1,300. With a day or two in the hospital, a week of missed wages, and the constant worry about making ends meet, even a mild injury could cause serious financial and emotional distress. On the other hand, severe or catastrophic injuries are not only emotionally devastating for victims and their families, but are even more costly in terms of medical care and lost income.

Personal Injury Law in Alabama

Accident victims, or “plaintiffs,” who bring a personal injury lawsuit under Alabama law may be able to recover compensatory damages, which are intended to compensate a person for physical, financial, and emotional losses.

 

Further, an aspect of Alabama law that sometimes benefits plaintiffs is that Alabama follows the rule of “joint and several liability.” This rule states that if two or more defendants are at fault for the injury, each defendant can be made to pay damages for the entire injury. In addition, some plaintiffs may be able to recover punitive damages, which are designed to punish the defendant(s) for particularly bad behavior. One unique aspect of Alabama law is that in suits for the wrongful death of a family member, plaintiffs may recover only punitive damages.

There are other important limitations on recovery under Alabama law for personal injury victims. For example, Alabama's has a unique take on contributory negligence.  Injured victims are barred from recovery if they are even one percent at fault for their injury. This is true even if the person who caused the injury was breaking the law or otherwise much more responsible for the plaintiff’s injury. In addition, any claims for a personal injury must generally be brought within two years of the date of the injury.

If you have questions about whether or not you should bring a personal injury lawsuit, you should speak with an Alabama personal injury attorney as soon as possible.  Contact us today for a free consultation.

Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors.
