Wrongful Death

Ryan & Wilkes, PCThe death of a loved one is always difficult. It is even more traumatic when the negligent or intentional acts of others caused the accident or fatal injury. Ryan & Wilkes, P.C. in Bay Minette, Alabama is committed to seeking justice and rightful compensation for survivors. We represent the estates and family members of victims in wrongful death lawsuits throughout Baldwin County and southwest Alabama.

Wrongful Death Litigation in Alabama
There is a two-year statute of limitation to bring a wrongful death action in Alabama, so it is important to contact an attorney early on to preserve evidence and investigate the cause of the "accidental" death.

Unlike other states which provide compensatory damages (lost earnings, funeral expenses, loss of companionship), Alabama provides only punitive damages. Once an injury becomes fatal, our mission shifts from proving economic damages to proving the negligence or wantonness of the person or entity responsible. We rely on a network of top experts in many fields to reconstruct accidents or otherwise show the fault that caused the death.

After establishing liability, we work out a monetary settlement demand based on historical awards for similar cases. Many cases settle out of court, but if the insurance company resists a fair and reasonable settlement, Mark D. Ryan is a veteran litigator who is fully prepared to take your case to trial.

Contact us today at 251-202-7580 for compassionate, personalized attention and aggressive pursuit of wrongful death compensation. We offer a free consultation at our Bay Minette and Orange Beach offices.

No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
