Macon Georgia Wrongful Death Attorney
Losing a loved one in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence – or worse – is one of the most difficult experiences you can endure. You understand that no amount of compensation will ever right the wrong and return your loved one to you, but seeking the compensation to which you are entitled, can help you and your family make the long and challenging journey toward healing. Wrongful death claims are complicated, and you need an experienced Macon County wrongful death attorney in your corner.
Your Georgia Wrongful Death Claim
Wrongful death claims in the State of Georgia pertain to situations in which someone loses his or her life to the negligence, recklessness, intentional act, or even criminal act of someone else. Negligence in this capacity means that the at-fault party owed the decedent (the person who lost his or her life) a duty of care but failed to live up to it. Because they are also based on negligence, wrongful death claims are very similar to personal injury claims. Because the decedent obviously can’t bring the claim himself or herself, a member of his or her family can bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of the decedent. In your claim, you can seek compensation for all the following:
- The income and benefits your loved one would have earned and contributed to your household had he or she lived
- The companionship and care that your loved one would have provided had he or she lived
- The medical expenses your loved one incurred prior to death (on behalf of his or her estate)
- Your loved one’s funeral and burial expenses (on behalf of his or her estate)
- The pain and suffering your loved one endured prior to death (on behalf of his or her estate)
