Wrongful Death Laws in Georgia

Georgia state law makes it possible for surviving family members to sue for the death of a loved one, when the accident was caused by the negligent actions of another party. Spouses are given priority rights to file a wrongful death claim, though if the deceased victim does not have a living spouse, the right then passes to the victim's children. Under the terms of the Georgia wrongful death statute, a wrongful death claim is calculated to "the full value of the life of the decedent." Since wrongful death claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations, it is important to contact an attorney right away following a loved one's death to protect your right to pursue compensation.

Wrongful Death Damages in Georgia

How can you put a price tag on the life of a family member who has been taken away by a serious accident? There is no way to accurately say exactly how much anyone's life is worth, but we can use certain guidelines in estimating how much to demand in your wrongful death claim. To begin with, the Cumming wrongful death lawyer from our team can help you claim economic damages to pay for the cost of medical bills related to your loved one's fatal condition, as well as for funeral and burial expenses, lost income and lost future financial contributions.

Furthermore, the claim can include non-economic damages for such intangible factors as loss of companionship, love and support. It is even possible to claim compensation for the pain and suffering that your loved one experienced in the time leading up to his or her passing.
