Alabama Personal Injury FAQ
When you’ve been hurt in an accident, you likely want to do everything you can to protect your financial future. Filing a claim against the liable party is often a viable option, but if you’ve never been involved in this area of the law before, it’s normal to be a bit confused about what’s to come.
Our team at the Henry Dailey Law Firm wants to help you streamline your claim and make the process as simple and effective as possible. Below, our attorneys have put together a list of frequently asked questions about personal injury law in Alabama.
What Is the Statute of Limitations in Alabama?
Every state has a set standard regarding how long accident victims have to file a claim after they are hurt. Filing past this deadline could lead to your case being thrown out on a technicality alone, so it’s important to meet with an attorney as soon as possible. In Alabama, victims have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim.
Do I Have a Viable Case?
Injuries are a part of life, so it’s normal to wonder whether your accident qualifies you to take legal action. Generally, attorneys will represent victims of medical malpractice, on-the-job accidents, car crashes, defective products, and premises liability cases.
Do I Need to Hire an Attorney?
You can forgo professional representation during your claim. However, doing so could lead to trouble. Working with an attorney is often the best way to prevent a claim denial and missed compensation.
What Is My Claim Worth?
It will be impossible to know right off the bat what your claim is worth. However, your attorney will be able to help you figure out which damages you are eligible to recover. These may include economic damages like lost wages or medical bills, as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of consortium, and more.
