Injuries Sustained in Grand Bay Accidents

Numerous scenarios regularly cause accidents in Grand Bay. For instance, many people living in Grand Bay like spending time on watercraft along the Gulf Coast, Grand Bay, Mississippi Sound and other bodies of water for leisure and for employment. It is not uncommon for maritime accidents to occur, brought about by inexperienced or careless operators or unsafe vessels. Similarly, people driving on the many rural two-lane roads and highways in Grand Bay frequently fail to use due care, and their recklessness leads to catastrophic collisions. Dog bites, slip or trip and fall accidents, and defective products regularly cause harm in Grand Bay as well.

People involved in accidents often sustain extensive physical, emotional, and financial losses. Fortunately, the law affords them the right to seek compensation from the parties responsible for their harm. A plaintiff injured in an accident that occurred on land will usually assert negligence claims against the defendant in a personal injury lawsuit. Pursuant to Alabama law, a plaintiff alleging negligence must demonstrate that the defendant owed them a duty, which may be the obligation to abide by a statute or to act with reasonable care, and that the defendant breached the duty owed. The plaintiff then needs to prove that the defendant’s breach proximately caused the plaintiff to suffer measurable harm. Alabama law dictates that personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the harmful incident.

If an accident happened in Mobile Bay or any other waterway in Alabama, however, maritime law, which blends international and United States laws, usually applies. The causes of action and burdens of proof under maritime law differ from those imposed under Alabama law, and it is critical that anyone injured on navigable waters retain an experienced maritime attorney to help them protect their rights. Tort claims arising under maritime law must be pursued within three years of the date of harm.

Compensation Awarded for Harm Suffered in Grand Bay Accidents

People hurt in Grand Bay accidents can often recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include the cost of any medical care needed to treat the injuries sustained in the accident, or that will be needed in the future, including surgery, hospitalization, physical and occupational therapy, and adaptive devices. Lost wages and loss of earning capacity suffered due to an inability to work, and out-of-pocket expenses incurred because of accidents fall under the umbrella of economic damages as well.

Non-economic damages usually refer to compensation for the intangible harm brought about by an accident, like mental and emotional trauma, suffering, and pain. If the plaintiff was married when the accident occurred, their spouse might also be awarded compensation for the loss of the plaintiff’s companionship, assistance, company, and society. Lastly, in cases in which the judge or jury finds the defendant’s actions to be especially egregious, they may impose punitive damages.
