Holding Responsible Parties Financially Liable
Injuries can take a personal and financial toll. They may impact someone’s ability to work, pick their kids up from school, or even walk across a room. At Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC(MATD) aggressively fights for our clients to be compensated for all the ways they have been harmed in an accident that was no fault of their own.
If someone else’s recklessness or negligence caused your accident, contact our experienced legal team in Demopolis. We will evaluate your case in a free initial consultation.
Acting Quickly Is Important
Many people hesitate to contact an attorney about their personal injury case. They might think their injuries are not severe or simply do not like the idea of litigation. Even if you choose to not move forward, you owe it to yourself to discuss what happened in a no-obligation, free consultation with an attorney experienced in all aspects of injury cases.
There are two significant reasons not to delay weighing your options:
- Evidence and memories fade with time
- Alabama’s statute of limitations
Most personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the accident. Waiting after that date typically means the case will be dismissed. With each passing day, the memories of eyewitnesses and physical evidence can become less reliable.
The strongest cases are often built soon after an accident when the scene and recollections are fresh.

No Compensatory Damage Caps in Demopolis
Every state has its own laws regarding personal injury awards. In Alabama, our laws place no damage caps on how much can be awarded for economic (tangible) and non-economic (intangible) costs.
Economic compensatory damages include the following (current and future):
- Doctor Bills
- Hospital Stays
- Prescription Costs
- Physical Therapy
- Lost Wages for Missed Work
- Property Damage
Noneconomic damages include the following:
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Chronic Pain
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Punitive damages are limited to either $500,000 or three times the compensatory damages, whichever is larger. Punitive damages are not available in every personal injury case. They are awarded only if “proved by clear and convincing evidence that the defendant consciously or deliberately engaged in oppression, fraud, wantonness, or malice with regard to the plaintiff.” Unlike economic and noneconomic damages, punitive awards are not designed to compensate the victim for the wrongdoing. Instead, these damages are meant to punish the offender and prevent others from taking similar action.
