Compensation Available in Tuskegee Personal Injury Claims
All U.S. states have specific laws that determine how and when personal
injury claims can be made. Alabama’s personal injury laws allow
for three types of monetary awards: economic (tangible), non-economic
(intangible), and punitive.
Economic compensatory damages include the following (current and future):
- Doctor Bills
- Hospital Stays
- Prescription Costs
- Physical Therapy
- Lost Wages for Missed Work
- Property Damage
Non-economic damages include the following:
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Chronic Pain
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Economic and non-economic damages are not capped by Alabama law. Jurors
are not limited in how much they can choose to award an injury victim
(though excessively high awards may be decreased). While compensatory
damages are meant to offset the costs incurred by an injury victim, punitive
damages are designed to punish the person responsible and discourage others
from similar conduct.
These damages are limited to either $500,000 or three times the compensatory damages, whichever is larger. A jury can award punitive damages 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

Alabama Puts a Deadline on Injury Claims
At the time of an accident, a virtual clock begins ticking. Alabamians
have two years from the date of most accidents to file a personal injury
claim. That timeframe is called a statute of limitations. Cases filed
after that deadline are generally thrown out.
Do not miss your opportunity to be compensated for injuries caused by someone
else’s negligence or recklessness.
The legal statutory time limits are not the only reason to act sooner rather
than later. With each passing day, eyewitness memories become hazy and
physical evidence is destroyed.
