Alabama Wrongful Death Rules
In Alabama, a two-year statute of limitations applies to wrongful-death actions alleging medical malpractice. This means that you are barred from seeking remedy if you have not filed a claim within two years of the injury. So if a doctor kills your husband by negligently performing some kind of procedure, you have two years from the date of death to file a claim or you can no longer recover for the loss. You should immediately seek out an attorney who focuses their practice on wrongful death, personal injury and/or medical malpractice, if you or someone you know, is involved in a situation where a doctor causes the death of a loved one.
