Alabama Statute Of Limitations Personal Injury
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 will lose your right to file
a claim and recover compensation.
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. This is what makes contacting an accident attorney in Alabama
so important for your personal injury case.
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.
