Alabama Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

Like all other states, Alabama has a law known as a "statute of limitations" which places a set time limit on personal injury lawsuits. Under Alabama Code Section 6-2-38, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party. If you do not file a claim by this deadline, you will lose your right to pursue compensation.

This deadline may be even shorter for injury claims against government entities. In Alabama, a formal claim against a municipality must be filed within six months while a claim against a county must be filed within one year. Our attorney can help you understand the time limits which apply to your case and ensure your compliance with all legal deadlines.

Contributory Negligence in Alabama

It is important to know that Alabama is one of the few states which still follows the "contributory negligence" rule which requires defendants to be 100% at fault to be held liable for injuries caused to another party. Under contributory negligence, if your case goes to trial and you are found by a jury to be even 1% at fault for your injuries, you will be unable to recover any compensation.

Insurance companies are familiar with this law and may use this during negotiations to persuade you to accept a lower settlement than you deserve. Our attorney can ensure your interests are protected and maximize your chances of securing every penny of your entitled compensation.
