Pursuing Damages After The Death Of A Loved One
When an accident causes fatal injuries, we can assist in pursuing a wrongful death claim. We understand the devastation your family is experiencing and work to achieve justice on behalf of your loved one.
Alabama’s wrongful death laws are unique from other states. Only the personal representative — also referred to as the executor — of the estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit. This individual may be designated by the deceased’s will or appointment by the court if they did not name someone within their will.
