“It wasn’t my fault.” “They were looking at their phone and not paying attention to the road.” “They could have killed me and my family.” These are all things we hear after our clients have been in a car accident. At Dothan Law Group we strive to protect you and your family, as well as guide you through the steps of dealing with all of the different avenues of being in a car accident.
“I need a rental car.” “I need my car repaired.” These are all issues that can be dealt with through the insurance companies in the days preceding your car accident. At Dothan Law Group, we understand that a lack of transportation after a car accident can present significant obstacles that create our client’s inability to get to work, get their kids to child care, etc. We are committed to helping you with these issues in an effort to expedite getting your property damage handled quickly.
In Alabama, there are strict time guidelines (statute of limitations) that you must follow to ensure that your claim is not barred forever. A “statute of limitations” is a state law that puts a strict time limit on the right to bring a lawsuit. Code of Alabama section 6-2-38 sets a two-year deadline for “all actions for any injury to the person or rights of another.” This includes car accidents and the “time clock” begins on the date that the car accident occurs.
That same two-year statute of limitations deadline also applies if a car accident results in a death, and the family or personal representative of the deceased person wants to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the crash.
If you have been injured in a car accident, it is extremely important for you to understand the options for getting the medical treatment you need as well as the compensation that the laws of the State of Alabama allows you receive for your losses.
