When you are seriously injured, the financial difficulties can stack up quickly. Between medical bills and time off work, you may be struggling to stay afloat. In personal injury cases, damages are designed to account for these costs and challenges (economic damages), as well as the pain and suffering you have undergone as a result of your accident (non-economic damages). Both economic and non-economic damages fit into a category called compensatory damages, which frequently provides funds for:
- Emergency treatments
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitative care
- Missed work
- Lost earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- And more
When extreme negligence or egregious wrongdoings cause your accident or in cases of wrongful death, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. These damages are designed to punish the wrongdoer and bring you additional comfort.
Law Offices of Adam E Parker will help you pursue all the damages appropriate for your case.
The key to winning your personal injury case is proving negligence. If you can do so, the person who caused your accident (the defendant) will be liable for your injuries and harm. Negligence is a failure to act with the level of care a situation requires. To prove negligence, you will need to show.
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- You were injured
- Your injury was a direct result of the defendant’s breach
Our Dothan personal injury lawyers can help you determine whether or not you have a case.
Under Alabama Code Section 6-2-38, you have 2 years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim against the defendant. This is known as the statute of limitations, and if you fail to adhere to it, your lawsuit could be thrown out.
There are some exceptions to the statute of limitations. If the injured person is a minor, for example, the clock does not start ticking until they turn 19. If you are filing against the government, on the other hand, you may need to file a claim more quickly.
Our firm can help you determine and adhere to the statute of limitations in your particular case.
