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.
