Helping Those Hurt in an Accident Receive Compensation
Some accidents cannot be avoided, and no one is at fault.
Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC (MATD) chalk up these mishaps as part of life. Other accidents, however, could
have been averted. Someone was negligent or reckless, putting others in danger.
If you are injured in an accident caused by someone else’s bad behavior
or careless decision,

Personal Injury Awards in Marion Can Cover Many Expenses
Remuneration in Alabama injury cases falls into one of three umbrella categories:
economic (tangible costs), noneconomic (intangible costs), and punitive.
There are no caps on possible economic or non-economic damage awards. Noneconomic
damages are available in some accident claims, but not all.
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. The purpose of this award is to punish the wrongdoer
for their reprehensible conduct and discourage others from acting similarly.
Except for wrongful death cases, punitive damages are only awarded 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.”
Alabama Limits Timeframe to File Injury Claims
If you are injured in an accident, you have a limited time to file a claim
related to your injuries. Accidental personal injury, wrongful death,
and medical malpractice claims all carry a two-year statute of limitations.
This means any claim, with a few exceptions, must be filed within two
years of the date of the injury. An intentional injury (assault and battery,
for example) has a six-year statute of limitations.
