Finding Legal Help for Wrongful Death, Andalusia, Alabama

Filing a wrongful death suit is one of the most difficult situations a person can face. The sudden loss of a loved one is emotionally challenging and can put the rest of the family at financial risk. In your time of mourning, Jones & Jones PC Attys at Law in Andalusia, AL, ease your burden by offering valuable legal help. Seeking compensation for the wrongful death is often an important step for you and your family.

Why Seek Compensation?

legal help Andalusia ALSeeking legal help cannot bring back your loved one. However, there are practical and emotional reasons to pursue a wrongful death suit. If the person responsible for your loved one's death was not criminally charged, a financial judgment against them can still bring a sense of justice. Additionally, if the deceased contributed financially to your family, a wrongful death suit can replace some of that support.

Who Can File in a Wrongful Death Case?

A wrongful death suit can be filed on behalf of spouses, domestic partners, and children of the deceased, and in certain circumstances more distant relatives and unrelated individuals can file as well. Generally, the deceased's estate may file for wrongful death in any case where the deceased would have had a case for personal injury if they had lived. A personal injury lawyer can help you determine if your case qualifies.

When Must Suit Be Filed?

In Alabama, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death case is generally two years from the date of death. However, this time frame can vary depending on the specifics of your case. Seek legal help well before this deadline in case your suit is impacted by any exemptions to the statute.

If you have lost a loved one due to an auto accident or any other negligent or malicious act, legal help is available. Contact Jones & Jones PC Attys at Law at (334) 222-3161, or reach out through their website.
