The sudden loss of a loved one is one of the most devastating tragedies any family can face. When a family member passes away unexpectedly because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another, it can be emotionally, psychologically, and financially draining.
If a loved one has died from the negligence or misconduct of another person or company, you should consider filing a wrongful death claim. In Atlanta, wrongful death claims can be submitted by a victim’s spouse, child, or parent, depending on the circumstances.
When an individual dies as a result of the negligent or wrongful actions of someone else, you may have a wrongful death claim. The person who caused the wrongful death can be held responsible in court. Wrongful death can be caused by a car or trucking accident, nursing home abuse, traumatic brain injury, negligent security and medical malpractice, among other things.
If you’re looking for an attorney in Atlanta who can work on your behalf to recover damages resulting from a wrongful death case like yours, here are a few things to consider from The Cochran Firm Atlanta:
Your search for a lawyer with experience in wrongful death cases similar to yours will probably take some time, but the decision you make is important.
If a loved one died as a result of a car accident or traumatic brain injury, you may have a claim.
Atlanta judges and juries are asked to base their wrongful death awards on the losses, pain, and suffering of the victim. Your claim will need to be structured by evaluating the victim’s lost future earnings, retirement benefits, savings, and inheritance as well as their physical and mental suffering prior to death. Your wrongful death attorney will also advise if it is prudent to seek punitive damages against the negligent party.
If your family is thinking about pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit in memory of a family member, it’s important to know who can file the claim under Georgia law. To ensure that your claim is settled for the benefit of the victim’s survivors, enlist the assistance of an experienced wrongful death attorney.
