Alabama Medical Malpractice Laws

There are no limitations on damages in medical malpractice cases (a law limiting noneconomic damages was held unconstitutional in 2003). The statute of limitations is two years from the date of the injury or six months from discovery of the injury (but must be filed within four years after the date of injury). For children under 4, the claim must be filed by age 8. There are no limitations on attorney fees. There is joint and several liability. Experts in medical malpractice cases must be similarly situated health care providers as the defendant(s).
