At Bell & Washington, we understand how difficult it is to deal with a devastating loss. Adding a lawsuit into the mix can make it seem initially harder to deal with your heartbreak, but in the long run, you’ll be much happier that you did. After all, your family’s livelihood could rely upon the outcome of your case.
If you’ve lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of another, you may be eligible to sue them for wrongful death. Although this isn’t an easy topic to broach, it’s important to remember that there are legal guidelines you must follow. For instance, Atlanta allows you to file a wrongful death claim for only two years. If you allow that time period to pass, the odds are high that you will not be able to make a claim.
Georgia Law and the Bell & Washington Law Firm is on Your Side
Whether your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, medical malpractice, or any other number of things, Georgia law is on your side. While it’s true that no amount of money will bring your loved one back, filing a successful wrongful death suit can provide for many things that your family needs, including funeral expenses. You may also receive a payment for the person’s expected lifetime earnings, which can be instrumental in securing their child’s future.
The Atlanta area has some of the highest legal protections against a wrongful death. Not only can you claim the money your loved one would have made, but you can also file for their loss of living and experiencing an enjoyable and fulfilling life. This provides you with a lot of room for a lawsuit, and it’s possible to be granted six or even seven figures by a judge.
