Accidents can often result in injuries that change the course of your life. Sometimes, an accident can have even more tragic results and cause the death of one of your close family members. After losing a loved one, you can face serious emotional and financial losses, and you might naturally wonder if you can seek justice for your loved one and your family.
Georgia law allows certain family members to file a wrongful death claim if another party caused the death of their loved one. This claim allows families to seek compensation for their extensive losses caused by the death. If you would like to learn about your rights to possible compensation, contact the law firm of Ben F. Windham, PC, to speak with a wrongful death lawyer in Jonesboro today.
Wrongful Death in Georgia
Each state gets to set its own laws regarding wrongful death claims, and Georgia law specifies when a claim can be filed and by whom. First, in order to lead to a wrongful death claim, a fatality must have occurred due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional act of another party. Some examples of events that might lead to wrongful death include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- RV and motorhome accidents
- Boating accidents
- Premises liability accidents
- Product liability accidents
- Nursing home neglect or abuse
If someone else was responsible for a fatality, the surviving spouse and children have the right to seek damages. If no spouse or children exist, the right passes on to the deceased’s parents or personal representative of the estate.
