How Long Will I Have to File a Lawsuit in Alabama?

Along with the other 49 states in the U.S., Alabama too has a statute of limitations that will limit the amount of time that you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. Depending on the nature of your claim, you may only have a few short years to bring suit against the party responsible for your injuries—be it a reckless driver, a careless property owner or a negligent manufacturer. For this reason, the Montgomery injury attorneys at Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC encourage you to discuss your case with our firm as soon as you have been injured. In doing so, you can ensure that your right to pursue compensation is not jeopardized by an expired statute of limitations.

Depending on the type of lawsuit that you wish to pursue, the statute of limitations will be as follows:

  • Personal Injury: 2 years from the date of injury
  • Wrongful Death: 2 years from the date of death
  • Product Liability: 2 years from the date of injury
  • Malpractice: 2 years from the date of injury
  • Property Damage: 6 years from the event
  • Breach of Contract: 6 years from the event
