Fighting for Fair Compensation
A wrongful death claim provides an opportunity for family members to seek compensation for the death of a loved one who was killed as a result of negligence or misconduct. It can help provide compensation for family members who relied on the deceased person for financial and emotional support.
Surviving family members may be entitled to a variety of types of compensation to help cover the monetary damages associated with the value of the deceased’s lost life and the financial losses to surviving family members. This can include:
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of care or companionship
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Pain and suffering of the deceased just before their death
When determining the amount of compensation that will be awarded in a wrongful death claim, the court will take a number of factors into consideration. An individual’s relationship to the deceased carries particular weight.
Georgia law specifies who has the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This includes:
If the surviving spouse and the deceased had minor children, the spouse must also represent the children’s interests in court. If there is no surviving spouse, the children can bring a wrongful death claim. If there is no surviving spouse or children, a claim can be brought by surviving parents or a representative of the deceased estate.
