Morgan County Wrongful Death Attorney
Losing a close family member is always devastating. It can be even more distressing if you learn that their death was avoidable, as it happened because another person or company was negligent. In these situations, the law gives you the right to file a claim for wrongful death to seek the justice and financial recovery your family needs to move forward.
If you think you might have a wrongful death claim, you should not hesitate to discuss what happened with a Morgan County wrongful death lawyer.
How Wrongful Death Claims Work
While a death in the family can cause emotional devastation, it can also result in financial concerns and other stress. Families might lose:
- The income of the deceased if they were a household supporter
- Household services of the deceased, such as childcare or home maintenance
- Lost companionship, advice, love, and support
In addition, there might be bills for medical care for the fatal injuries, as well as funeral and burial expenses.
In Georgia, close family members such as spouses, children, or parents can seek compensation for their losses. The estate of the deceased can seek compensation for the losses related to the final injuries or illness. In order to qualify for compensation, they must prove that another party or parties were responsible for causing the death.
While some wrongful death claims can be resolved directly with insurance companies, other cases proceed to litigation in civil court. It is important for families to seek legal help with this process.
