Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Georgia?

In Georgia, the right to file a wrongful death claim is limited to certain relatives:

  • Spouse and Children: A spouse may file, sharing any recovery with the children.
  • Children: If there’s no surviving spouse, the children can file the claim.
  • Parents: If the deceased had no spouse or children, the parents may file.
  • Estate: When there are no immediate family members, the estate can pursue the claim.

Time is of the essence in wrongful death cases. Evidence can disappear, and deadlines are strict. You have two years from the date of death to file a claim. Miss this window, and the right to seek compensation is lost. By acting swiftly, you increase your chance of a favorable outcome. Our seasoned attorneys have the expertise and resources to navigate these complex and lengthy legal processes efficiently.

Understanding Wrongful Death Claims

Georgia law recognizes two main types of wrongful death claims:

  1. Full Value of Life: This includes lost wages, loss of care, and loss of companionship.
  2. Economic Loss: This covers medical bills, funeral costs, and other monetary impacts.

Wrongful death claims in Georgia can cover a wide range of damages:

  • Economic Damages: Medical bills, funeral costs, lost wages, and benefits.
  • Non-Economic Damages: Pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship.
  • Punitive Damages: For particularly egregious negligence, additional punitive damages may be awarded.

Our attorneys meticulously review each case, accounting for all relevant factors to ensure you receive fair compensation. We’re adept at dealing with insurance companies who often aim to minimize settlements.
