Wrongful Death Claims
The sudden death of a family member or loved one can leave survivors reeling. Wrongful death claims arise when an act of negligence contributes to the death of an individual. There is no settlement that can ease the pain of losing a loved one or family member, but an experienced attorney can offer support and help you navigate the complications of a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims are varied and arise from workplace accidents, car, motorcycle, & trucking accidents, dangerous & defective products, medical malpractice, and other cases in which a person’s death can be clearly attributed to the negligence of a company or individual.
The grief of the death of a loved one is a burden family members carry for the rest of their lives, and the emotional and financial repercussions can plague a family for years. Georgia wrongful death statutes clearly define claim holders, and persons entitled to compensation can recover the “full value” of the the life of the deceased, which includes, among other losses:
- Medical Bills
- Funeral Costs
- Loss of Future Earnings
- Loss of Inheritance
- Pain and Suffering Compensation
- Loss of Companionship or Services
- Loss of Insurance Benefits
Do You Need Legal Representation?
When hiring a Georgia wrongful death attorney there are several things to keep in mind. Georgia’s statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years. An attorney will need to thoroughly investigate and review each claim, so we recommend you contact an attorney well before the statute of limitations expires. Again, there is no settlement that can ease the pain of losing a loved one, but our experienced attorneys will help offer the support you need to handle the legal nuances.
