Alabama Supreme Court Reverses Decision on Injury Suit Time Limit

Posted under 47c9f961-93a3-403a-9c73-0e2a7ec3aca9

In a recent reversal of policy, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that the established two-year time limit during which those suffering from toxic chemical or substance exposure were required to file suit does not begin “counting down” until symptoms actually appear. Previously, plaintiffs were forbidden to file suit until they began exhibiting symptoms of illness, but had only two years from the time of exposure to file suit. This, according to Justice Bernard Harwood, made no sense at all, since many disorders resulting from exposure to substances such as asbestos take much longer than two years to show up.
