This video features Sara Williams, a Personal Injury attorney based in Alabama.
In Alabama who has standing in a wrongful death case if a person dies in a vehicle accident? We ask Alabama lawyer Sara Williams for this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.
The standing for wrongful death in Alabama is obviously going to depend on who has survived that individual. So if it is a child, obviously both parents, if it is a husband then their spouse and their children. So we always recommend engaging an estate lawyer to make the appropriate determination. We are usually hired by a family, and then we will work to identify who is the most appropriate individual to serve as the personal representative of their estate.
