Don’t Wait to File Your Claim
According to the Ala. Code. Sec. 6-2-38 the statute of limitations for
personal injury cases in Alabama is two years. This means you have two
years from the date on your accident to file a claim or you may lose your
right to do so. There are certain circumstances in this state that can
extend the statute of limitations. Likewise, there are circumstances that
will shorten your time frame to file a claim. For example, if your injury
was caused by an employee of a governmental body you will have only six
months to file a claim. Call our firm today to learn more about how the
statute of limitations may affect your case. Our experienced team will
fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.
What Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?
There are three main types of damages an injury victim can pursue in a
personal injury claim. These damages are:
- Economic damages
- Non-economic damages
- Punitive damages
Economic damages seek to compensate the injured party for the financial
losses they suffer as a result of being injured, such as medical expenses
or missed wages due to the inability to work. Non-economic damages compensate
the injured party for non-financial suffering such as pain and suffering.
Punitive damages are the least awarded of the three and serve as a financial
punishment to the negligent party as opposed to compensating the injured party.
