The law in Alabama in fatal car wrecks is different than every other state in the country. While most states seek to determine the financial value of the victim, Alabama recognizes that all life is precious and the verdict or settlement of a death claim is based on preserving human life in the future by monetarily punishing those who cause the death of another.
We believe the Alabama law is the best in the country because every life is treated the same. In Alabama, for example, age, sex, race and income do not matter. We don’t value a lawyer’s life any more than a secretary’s or a doctor’s more than a teacher. Everyone’s life is precious and treated the same in Alabama’s courts.
Jemison & Mendelsohn has handled hundreds of deadly car accidents under the Alabama Wrongful Death Law. We are proud that some of our settlements and verdicts have led to changes in the way trucking companies and alcohol providers operate their businesses.
