Wrongful Death

An unexpected death is absolutely heartbreaking and nothing in this world can truly replace the loss. The weeks and months that follow such an incident will most assuredly be some of the most difficult times in your life. In such cases, the victim’s family may file a wrongful death suit to compensate for their losses. Georgia law recognizes this, and affords some of the highest legal protections for wrongful death in the United States.

When a person dies due to the carelessness of another, a wrongful death claim exists. These types of deaths can range from medical malpractice cases to automotive accidents. We strive to ensure that families are given the maximum care and relief afforded by the law. While there is no monetary figure that could ever make up for the loss of a loved one, Georgia’s compensatory damages in a wrongful death case can alleviate some of the burden of the funeral, burial, and many other expenses. Claimants are entitled to the full value of the life for the deceased loved one. Under Georgia laws, you may be able to recover for the lifetime of lost income and the value of your loved one’s loss of living and experiencing a fulfilling and enjoyable life.
