Wrongful Death Claims
What makes a death fall under the category of “wrongful”? As far as Georgia law is concerned, a “wrongful death” is one that should have been avoidable. In other words, when someone’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness leads to fatal injuries, you have every right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
As you can imagine, the wrongful death of a spouse or family member can be caused by just about anything. What it all boils down to is proving fault. When you file a wrongful death claim, it’s up to you and your attorney to prove that the cause of your loved one’s death was another person’s error.
Deliberate or not, that mistake cost you and your family a tremendous amount of pain and suffering — not to mention medical bills, funeral expenses, and related bills. Getting compensated for those costs may not bring back your loved one, but it can help you get closure and give you a much-needed financial boost to get through this difficult time.

If you’ve or a loved one has been hurt in any kind of accident that was caused by someone else, please don’t hesitate to give me a call.
