Wrongful Death Claims in Georgia
Each state has its own wrongful death laws, and Georgia defines wrongful death as a fatality caused by recklessness, negligence, or wrongful conduct. This can 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

If someone else was responsible for causing a death, the law gives rights to close family members such as a surviving spouse, children, or parents. These loved ones can seek financial recovery for their losses, which can include the loss of financial support the deceased provided, as well as the loss of household services, companionship, and love. While payment can never bring your family member back to you, it can help ease the burden on your family.
