How a Lawyer Will Help With Your Georgia Wrongful Death Claim
Here’s how a lawyer can help you with your Georgia wrongful death claim:
Assess Your Case
The first step a lawyer will take is to assess your case to determine whether you have a viable wrongful death claim. They will investigate the circumstances of your loved one’s death, gather evidence, and evaluate the potential liability of the parties involved.
A wrongful death claim can seek compensation for a variety of damages, including medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, lost income and future earnings, and pain and suffering. Your lawyer will help you determine what damages you are entitled to and pursue them on your behalf. They will also negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that you receive a fair settlement or take your case to court if necessary.
Provide Support and Guidance
Losing a loved one is a traumatic experience, and pursuing a wrongful death claim can be emotionally challenging. A compassionate lawyer can provide you with the support and guidance you need during this difficult time. They will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your case.
Most Common Causes of Wrongful Death That Lead to Lawsuits
Wrongful death can result from a variety of situations, but some of the most common causes include:
- Car and truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
- Workplace accidents
- Criminal acts
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit?
In Georgia, only certain people are allowed to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The spouse of the deceased may file a wrongful death lawsuit and, if they have children under 18, can do so on their behalf. The spouse is entitled to at least one-third of any financial recovery.
If the deceased person was not married and had no children, their surviving parents can file the claim. A designated representative of the deceased’s estate may file the claim on their behalf, with any damages going to the deceased’s estate to be distributed to their surviving next-of-kin.
