- Q. We are filing a wrongful death suit for my dads death. How are damaged disbursed in a wrongful death case in alabama
- A: Alabama handles wrongful death damages different than most (if not all) other states. In Alabama, the only damages recoverable for wrongful death are PUNITIVE damages. Compensatory damages such as pain, suffering, economic loss, etc. are not recoverable in Alabama. In addition, although the estates personal representative is the one who actually brings the lawsuit, the damages are payable directly to the HEIRS
- Q. Are there grounds for an individual such as myself to sue a pharmaceutical manufacturer for opioid addiction?
- A: Possibly. There are a number of law firms around the country who have been investigating individual cases for persons affected by opioid addiction. At this point, I am unaware of any people who have actually received compensation for this. Various legal theories are being explored and it's not really clear at this point to what extent this type of case will be successful or what the ultimate criteria might be for a successful case. A simple Google search should identify law firms handling/exploring these types of cases and I would recommend that you begin by contacting one of them.
- Q. My son was attacked by his neighbor with a hammer. This incident left my son with a broken arm that he needs surgery for
- A: The quick answer is that your son can sue the neighbor for his injuries, however there are a number of complicating issues that cannot be determined from your question. (1) If there's evidence/claims that your son contributed to the altercation, or was the initial aggressor or equally at fault in causing the altercation, this could affect the value of the case and/or the prospects of success. (2) There would also be the question of what is the likelihood of being able to collect any judgment you might get. This would depend on the neighbor's financial situation and whether he has any insurance that might cover any judgment.
