Wrongful Death

There are few circumstances worse than losing a loved one without having the chance to say goodbye. Unfortunately, this is the case for hundreds of thousands of people every year. The causes vary — medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, drunk driving, violent crimes, and even pure accidents — but the pain you feel from the wrongful death is something you never should have had to experience.

Balancing Grief & Justice

Wrongful death cases are particularly emotional because, as you seek justice for your loved one, you’re grieving a deep, unexpected loss. It may feel like pursuing a wrongful death case during this trying time is beyond what you can handle — but this is the exact moment when you can step up and pursue justice for your loved one.

In the state of Georgia, the court measures the life that could have been for the deceased. Rather than prioritizing the loss experienced by the deceased’s loved ones, the court considers all that the deceased has lost due to their early death. In this way, pursuing a wrongful death case in Georgia means seeking honor for your loved one’s life.

This is precisely why it’s in your best interest to hire an attorney who can balance empathy for your circumstance with the skills it takes to achieve a favorable outcome — to make the wrongful party pay for what they’ve done.

Settling a Wrongful Death

More than 90% of wrongful death cases are settled before going to court. What does this mean for your case? You can likely reach a settlement without going through the expensive, time-consuming, and emotionally trying process of fighting for your case in a courtroom.

This is especially important in wrongful death cases, where you want to seek justice for your loved one while also mourning their loss. The sooner your case is settled, the sooner you can move on from the incident and focus on the life your loved one lived. Your settlement can cover many aspects of your loved one’s life, including:

  • Their burial and funeral expenses
  • Their medical bills leading up to the death
  • Conscious pain they experienced prior to death
  • Their lost wages, income, and benefits
  • Loss of care and love they provided your family

While you may be able to settle before going to trial, your lawyer needs to be ready to go to court for you. With an experienced litigator by your side, you can negotiate a higher settlement pretrial — and, should it come to it — seek justice for your loved one in the courtroom.
