Real Recovery in Wrongful Death Cases

At Burke Harvey, LLC, we handle a full range of wrongful death cases statewide, including:

  • Fatal car accidents, truck accidents ATV accidents and boating accidents
  • Deaths caused by defective consumer products
  • Pharmaceutical liability claims (dangerous and deadly prescription drugs)
  • Workplace accidents
  • Death caused by hospital negligence or other medical malpractice

Wrongful death cases are substantially different in Alabama than in most other jurisdictions. State statutes set out specific processes, procedures and limitations that govern what is necessary to prevail and the damages that are compensable in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The Alabama Supreme Court has interpreted the wrongful death statute to award punitive damages in certain wrongful death cases. It takes a highly experienced and dedicated attorney to see to it that you recover the money you need to start a new life on solid financial footing after the loss of a loved one.
