Wrongful Death Claims
The State of Georgia provides rights to close family members of deceased victims of accidents or violence. Specifically, qualified family members – including the surviving spouse, children, or parents – can file a claim against the liable party for different types of damages. This can include compensation for lost earnings of the deceased, lost household services, and lost companionship, love, care, and support.
Wrongful deaths stem from another party’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct. Some common causes of wrongful death include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- RV and Motorhome Accidents
- Rental Car Accidents
- Taxi Cab Accidents
- Uber Accidents
- Lyft Accidents
- Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse
- Premises Liability

You only have two years from the date of the death to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia, and there are many steps to take prior to filing a lawsuit. You should always consult with a Conyers wrongful death attorney as soon as possible if you believe you might have a claim.
