Alabama law defines a wrongful death as caused by the wrongful act, omission, or negligence of another which can occur in numerous situation such as auto or trucking accidents, work injuries, medical malpractice, and other types of personal injuries. The Alabama Wrongful Death Statute is somewhat unique and only allows punitive damages, which are determined by the gravity of the act, the propriety of punishing the wrongdoer, and the need for deterring others from committing the same or similar conduct. These can be very complicated cases and can generally only be brought by the deceased personal representative (s).
