Who Is Responsible for Your Injury?

In Alabama, the at-fault system primarily applies to motor vehicle accidents. However, the concept of fault does apply to other types of personal injury cases within the state. This means that in situations like slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, and others, the party responsible (or at fault) for causing the injury may be held liable for damages.

In non-vehicle accident cases, the legal principles of negligence and liability are used to determine fault. A party is considered negligent when they fail to act with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. The injured party must prove that the other party’s negligence caused their injuries to hold them liable.

Proving Negligence

To hold someone legally responsible for your injuries, you must demonstrate negligence. This involves proving four key elements:

  • Existing Duty of Care: The defendant had a legal obligation to act in a manner that prevents harm to others.
  • Breach of Duty of Care: The defendant failed to uphold this duty through their actions or omissions.
  • Causation: The defendant’s breach of duty directly resulted in your injuries.

Damages: You suffered actual losses or injuries as a result of the incident.

What Compensation Are You Entitled To?

Victims of personal injury can seek compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. The specific compensation you’re entitled to will depend on the details of your case and the extent of your injuries.
