Standing Up for Families that Suffered a Tragic Loss in Augusta
When someone causes a serious injury to another person, the victim has the right to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation. However, what happens if the injuries caused were fatal? Families in the Augusta area unfortunately receive news of tragic and unexpected deaths of loved ones that were the fault of other parties. In this devastating situation, Georgia law allows families to file a claim for wrongful death.
