Mourning the loss of a loved one is difficult enough. Let us carry the burden of ensuring that they get the justice they deserve.
Losing a loved one unexpectedly is very difficult, especially if you know that their death could have been avoided if the party at fault had exercised a little more precaution. In addition to the heartbreaking devastation, you may suffer significant financial losses in the form of hospitalization bills and funeral costs. In some cases, you may lose the likelihood of a good future if the deceased was the sole provider of your family.
Whatever the case may be, Dothan Law Group’s wrongful death lawyers are here to help you hold the party at fault accountable for their negligence and ensure that you get a befitting compensation.
When to file for a wrongful death lawsuit
Before filing for a wrongful death lawsuit, it is important to understand what qualifies as a wrongful death by law. While all circumstances surrounding a death are different, the accidents must contain the following elements to be classified as a wrongful death.
- Wrongful acts and negligence
The loss of life of the victim should be a result of the negligence or the wrong action of the party at fault to be deemed a wrongful death.
- Direct correlation
There should be proof of a direct correlation between the action of the party at fault and the death of the victim.
- Damages and losses
The death must result in damages and loss. These damages can be in the form of financial, emotional, and psychological losses to the family of the deceased.
A skilled wrongful death lawyer can help you determine whether the passing of your loved one was a wrongful death and file for a claim within the statute of limitations of the accident. In this case, the statute of limitations is two years from the time of the incident.

- Road vehicle accidents
- Machinery and equipment malfunction
