Whether you work in an office or a construction site, we are all vulnerable to some degree to suffer from a serious injury. Even the most mundane occupation can be dangerous if negligence occurs. For many, workplace injuries should be covered under workers’ compensation, a program that provides financial support while an employee recovers from an injury. There are many instances where legal representation is necessary, including when an employer or the workers’ compensation insurance provider violate one’s rights. In addition, when a person is injured on the job and it was caused by the negligence of a third party, including the property owner, the manufacturer or designer of safety equipment, or another liable party, it is important to consider legal action to recover just compensation.
Wrongful Death cases
No one is prepared to lose a loved one, especially when it is unexpected. Wrongful death cases deserve a compassionate and effective attorney. While a person is grieving, the financial burden of a wrongful death is right around the corner. A wrongful death is the wrongful act, negligence or omission of another that lead to an untimely death of a person. Simply put, if the act that caused death would have constituted a personal injury case if the deceased had lived, it may be a viable wrongful death claim. According to Alabama law, a personal representative of the estate may take action to recover damages.
Serious injury and wrongful death cases generally have the same linking thread. Negligence must be proven, and compensation may be awarded if successful. For some accidents, proving negligence is as easy as having a police report executed. Other situations call for a thorough investigation into the matter and the preservation of evidence. One important note, Alabama follows the doctrine of contributory negligence. If the plaintiff contributed to the accident and also acted negligently, it could bar them from recovery.
These cases often come down to economic and noneconomic damages, financial compensation for the incident. Economic damages include the financial burden of the accident or incident. These include medical bills, lost income, and the possible impact to future wages. Noneconomic damages are more complicated and can include pain and suffering and the diminished quality of life.
