Seeking Justice After A Fatal Accident
When another driver’s reckless or negligent driving causes you to lose your loved one in a wrongful death, that driver should be responsible for the cost of the consequences. While many people suffer consequences of a wrongful death, not everyone is able to file a claim.
Here at Penn & Seaborn, LLC, our Alabama team offers those mourning the loss of a loved one the help they need to secure the maximum compensation for a wrongful death. We know the possible consequences of a wrongful death, and you can count on us to act on your behalf for your benefit.
What You Should Know About A Wrongful Death Claim
Despite how many people can be hurt by the tragic loss of a loved one, not everyone can file a claim for their loss. Each state has its own laws regarding who can file a claim. In Alabama, only the person acting as the personal representative or executor of the decedent can file a lawsuit for the wrongful death.
Compensation for this claim can be collected as punitive damages or monetary penalties to punish the defendant for their actions. The assets from this compensation go directly to the heirs rather than the estate, and state law limits the total amount of possible damages to $1,500,000.
While there are limits to who can pursue compensation and how much they can collect, we can help you. You can count on our team to tirelessly pursue the maximum possible compensation for your loss, and we are ready to do what it takes to help you and your family move forward from your loss.
