Securing Rightful Compensation for Victims in Alabama
The Dothan pedestrian accident attorneys at Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC (MATD) would like to ensure that you are fairly compensated if you or a loved one has been injured in a preventable pedestrian accident. Often times, pedestrians suffer catastrophic injuries when they are involved in a collision with a much larger motor vehicle—especially when they are afforded little to no protection against the force of the impact—so securing compensation may be a necessary step in your recovery.
To find out if you are entitled to damages, we encourage you to contact our firm by calling (888) 694-0174 today.
Determining Liability after an Accident
Unfortunately, many pedestrian accidents are the direct result of someone else’s negligent actions. If, for example, a driver had decided to make a call, send a text or program their navigation device before losing control of their vehicle, it could be argued that this singular distraction had contributed to the cause of the accident—which, in essence, would be an act of negligence.

This is also true of any instance in which a driver has decided to get behind the wheel while intoxicated or fatigued, as they would be knowingly putting others at risk. It is for this reason that they could be held responsible for compensating the wrongfully injured victim through a civil lawsuit. If you have been struck by a reckless or careless driver in Alabama, however, you must also need to determine whether or not your own actions have contributed to the cause of the accident—as Alabama follows a system of contributory negligence.
This means that a victim cannot secure any amount of compensation if they are deemed to be even 1% responsible for causing their own injuries. If, for example, you had been J-walking at the time that you were hit by a drunk driver, the jury might argue that the accident could have been prevented had you, yourself not acted negligently. Although this might seem unfair, this is, unfortunately, just the way it is in Alabama.
How long do I have to file a claim in Alabama?
In accordance with the statute of limitations, all wrongfully injured victims in Alabama have a limited amount of time to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Generally speaking, all claims must be filed within two years of the date of injury. Although this may seem like plenty of time to organize a case and initiate a lawsuit, you should not wait until the deadline approaches to get started. For this reason, our firm prompts you to take action as soon as possible if you have been injured in a pedestrian accident. In doing so, you can ensure that your right to claim compensation is not jeopardized by an expired statute of limitations.
