Wrongful Death
If a loved one has died because of an accident, or as the result of someone else's negligence, or a defective product, you may be entitled to recover for your loss under a wrongful death claim. You may be entitled to recovery for the following damages and expenses in a wrongful death claim:

• Medical and funeral expenses associated with the death
• Pain and suffering the deceased suffered before the death
• Loss of wages and benefits that the deceased provided his or her family
• Loss of love, companionship, support or care suffered by the decedent's survivors
• Punitive damages, in some cases, which are intended to punish the wrongdoers and hopefully prevent them from causing the same harm to someone else.

In forty-nine states, the estates of those wrongfully killed begin the calculation of damages with calculation of the victim's lost income.  This practice privileges the lives of those with high incomes.  In essence, it values the lives of the well-educated and financially successful above others.  One state--Alabama--has a different scheme, which provides compensation based on the culpability of the wrongdoer, instead of the harm to the victim's estate. 

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligent or wrongful acts of another, contact us at (334) 793 2889  or forward your information by email to receive a response from an associate in our office.
