Alabama Statute of Limitations
Alabama has a “statute of limitations”, meaning that a state law gives the time limit on when a person must make a lawsuit. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. There is a two-year timeline that applies to personal injury cases. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. However, there is a six year if vehicle damage happened at the time of the accident. Alabama also has a “contributory negligence” legal standard. This means that if you contribute minorly to an accident, you cannot collect damages from the other person.
