Accidents cause millions of injuries each year in the United States, and many of these injuries are tragically fatal. When a family experiences an unexpected loss, it can impact them emotionally, mentally, and financially. Many people also want justice after the loss of a loved one, and to hold the parties that caused the fatal accident accountable.
Like every state, Georgia has wrongful death laws that give close family members important rights in this situation. The law firm of Ben F. Windham, PC, regularly handles claims for families following a sudden loss, and you should not hesitate to speak with a wrongful death lawyer in Douglasville who can help.
Possible Causes of Wrongful Death
The law in Georgia considers a death to be “wrongful” when it occurs due to another party’s intentional wrongdoing, recklessness, or negligence. Some common incidents that lead to wrongful death claims can include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- RV and Motorhome Accidents
- Rental Car Accidents
- Taxi Cab Accidents

If you believe that another person or company was responsible for a loved one’s death, you should not wait to learn about your rights. Spouses, children, or parents of a deceased accident victim can often recover compensation for their financial, practical, and emotional losses.
