What Amount Can You Sue For In A Shooting Victim Case?

In Alabama, you can sue for any amount in your shooting victim claim. Compensatory damages are not capped. They are whatever a jury says they are.

Compensatory damages include:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of the Enjoyment of Life
  • Mental Anguish
  • Lost Wages
  • Past and Future Medical Treatment

Also, you may be entitled to punitive damages, which are designed to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from doing similar bad acts in the future.

Every case is different, so there is no average settlement in a shooting case. Speak with an experienced Alabama shooting victim attorney to learn more about what your case may be worth.

How Long Do I Have To File A Shooting Injury Case?

In most shooting injury cases, you typically have only two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit in Alabama.

If your loved one died in a shooting, the Alabama wrongful death statute of limitations generally allows you only two years from the date of the victim’s death to take legal action in a wrongful death claim.

Talking to an experienced shooting victim attorney in Alabama is the best way to help you determine the deadline for filing legal action in your case.
