Unfortunately, some accidents are so severe that they result in the death of a family member or other loved one. If that death occurred as the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the surviving family members might bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party. Wrongful death claims may be brought as a result of any wrongful act or omission and are often the result of incidents such as car wrecks, defective products, medical malpractice, and work-related injury. Although we understand that this may be a difficult time for you and your family, it is important that your potential wrongful death case be reviewed as soon as possible to ensure that it is thoroughly investigated. It is also important to file any viable claims as soon as possible because the law establishes a maximum time period for surviving families to file a wrongful death case under a statute of limitations. This period of time is two years in Alabama.

When you turn to a doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner, you place your trust and confidence in them based on their knowledge and training; and you have the right to expect a certain standard of care.
The sad truth is, doctors, nurses, technicians and pharmacists make mistakes. Some examples of common medical errors are:
- Delayed Diagnosis
- Surgical Errors
- Anesthetics Error
- Birth Injury
- Wrong Medication
- Wrong Dosage of Medication
- Incorrect Procedures
- Emergency Room Negligence
Not all medical errors or injuries arise from negligence or irresponsible conduct. The practice of medicine is inherently challenging. Many illnesses are difficult to diagnose, some diseases have no cure, and genetics may cause deformities before a child is born.

Product Liability Lawyers in Alabama
Product liability law deals with the liability of a product’s manufacturer, supplier or seller, if a product defect causes a malfunction or does not perform as a reasonable person would expect and causes harm to the person who used the product.
In the U. S., defective products cause thousands of injuries and death each year. In an attempt to warn consumers, when product defects are discovered, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission lists product recalls on their web site. Manufacturers send warning notices to consumers who may have purchased a product later determined as possibly defective, and product recalls are announced regularly on radio and TV and are printed in magazines. Defective products range from cars, trucks, air bags, sports equipment, household appliances, computer batteries, tools, toys and prescription drugs to name a few examples.
Product defects fall into three basic categories:
- Design defects
- Insufficient instructions or warnings regarding usage
- Manufacturing defects
If you are seriously injured, whether or not you have a basis for a product liability claim lies not only in an injury resulting from use of an item, but also in whether or not the product was defective or unexpectedly dangerous.
Under Alabama product liability law, if you can prove that the product that injured you was in an unreasonably dangerous condition, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor or seller.
A product is considered unreasonably dangerous if:
- The product fails to perform safely as an ordinary person would expect, when used as it was intended.
- The product fails to perform as the manufactures might reasonably foresee.
- The risk of danger in the product’s design outweighs the benefits.
Product liability actions in Alabama must be brought within two years after you are injured; therefore, it is important that you contact a product liability lawyer as soon after your accident as possible.
Birmingham Personal Injury lawyers handle many types of injury involving a defective product, including defects in automobiles, tires, airbags, home heating devices, and numerous other dangerous or defective products. If you were injured by a faulty product, you could hold the manufacturer or retailer responsible by filing a product liability claim. Let a lawyer review your potential claims and advise you of your rights.
