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.
