What Is Wrongful Death?
In Georgia, wrongful death is a type of personal injury accident that occurs when someone dies due to someone else’s negligent or intentional act. Wrongful death cases can arise from a variety of accidents, including car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and workplace accidents.
Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim In Georgia?
In Georgia, only certain people can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased. This typically includes the surviving spouse, children or parents of the deceased. If there is no surviving spouse, children or parents, then the estate’s personal representative may file the claim.
What Can You Recover In A Wrongful Death Case?
In a wrongful death case in Georgia, the surviving family members may be able to recover compensation for various damages, including:
- Medical expenses incurred before the person’s death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of the deceased’s financial support
- Loss of companionship and support
- Pain and suffering
While recovering these expenses cannot make up for the loss of your loved one, it can provide the support you need to get through this challenging time.
What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Filing A Wrongful Death Claim?
In Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is generally two years from the date of the person’s death. It’s important to file a claim as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss this deadline.
