No insurance settlement or jury verdict will ever be large enough to undo what has happened and to bring back the one you have lost. You can, however, demand to receive financial compensation to offset the economic impact of your tragedy. 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. 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."
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 personal injury 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 noneconomic 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. If you believe that you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim, contact us now for a free case evaluation to discuss your legal options and begin working on a strategy for you.
