How Liability Can Affect Your Case
Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care and typically occurs when
someone acts carelessly or fails to act, which causes the injury. Even
when the act is unintentional, the defendant may still be held liable
for your injuries and damages.
Strict Liability: Strict liability often applies to product liability cases, which are
claims against manufacturers and suppliers of dangerous products that
Intentional or Reckless Misconduct: Reckless misconduct is the intentional or malicious infliction of harm
against someone, which results in injury or death. If the misconduct results
in death, the family of the victim may bring a wrongful death claim and
possibly recover punitive damages under some circumstances.
Physical Injury and Emotional Damage
There are different types of injuries that can occur as a result of personal
injury. Common physical injuries include: broken or fractured bones, sprains
and other soft tissue injuries. In more serious cases, catastrophic injuries
can occur, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), head or spinal cord
injuries, burn injuries, and in the worst cases, wrongful death.
Psychological or emotional damage is, unfortunately, one of the most overlooked
types of trauma a personal injury victim can sustain. This is primarily
true because mental trauma is not always easily detected. If you are or
a loved one is experiencing psychological symptoms following a personal
injury, be sure to contact a mental health professional immediately.
What happens after an accident?
There are several things you should do immediately following a collision
- First, seek appropriate medical attention.
- Second, follow the advice of your health care providers.
- Then, make sure you take record of medical expenses and keep receipts of
all property damage repairs or other accident-related expenses paid out
of your own pocket.
- Next, notify your insurance carrier and law enforcement, if necessary.
- After, the next step should be to contact an attorney to discuss your rights.
All personal injury cases in Alabama are governed by a statute of limitations,
which means that you have a specific period of time in which to file a
lawsuit and pursue your claims. In Alabama, the time limit is two years,
so you should not delay in getting the legal help you need.
