Alabama’s Wrongful Death Statute
Due to Alabama’s unique Wrongful Death Statute, the only damages that may be recovered are punitive. Punitive damages are designed to punish the culpable party and deter the same conduct from occurring again. Unfortunately, this statute excludes the recovery of compensatory damages, such as loss of income, pain and suffering, and medical bills. However, if a lawsuit is filed prior to death, it is possible to recover compensatory damages. This ensures that the victim has the ability to recover from the pain and suffering caused by the accident, and have their medical expenses covered prior to death.
