There are many types of unexpected accidents that occur and many of them can result in serious injuries and even death. Some examples include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and slip and falls. In fact, any type of accident has the potential to result in death.

If someone is killed in an unexpected accident, the family of the deceased often has the legal right to file a wrongful death claim to seek compensation from the responsible party. Here are some of the most common questions the wrongful death lawyers of The Angell Law Firm receive:

Georgia’s wrongful death statute O.C.GA 51-4-2 allows a decedent’s family members to file a lawsuit. The purpose of the lawsuit is to recoup money from the wrongful party for causing their loved one’s untimely death. The amount of money, or damages, may vary from family to family depending on the specific circumstances of the accident. The damages awarded in a wrongful death claim are meant to compensate the family for funeral expenses, burial expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

After a loved one has passed away, many people may be in mourning. But, there are only certain people who are legally permitted to file a wrongful death claim. The surviving spouse is the first party that is allowed to file a claim. If there is no surviving spouse, then the victim’s surviving children may file the claim instead. Others who may file a claim include the following:

  • Parents,
  • then the victim’s siblings,
  • then the victim’s nieces and nephews,
  • then grandparents,
  • and then their lineal descendants.

To determine if you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim, it is important to have a knowledgeable wrongful death lawyer on your side. Contact The Angell Law Firm today to get started.

Regardless of who files the lawsuit, recovering compensation in a wrongful death claim requires proving certain elements. To obtain money from the negligent party responsible for the victim’s death, the plaintiff must prove that:

  • The defendant had a legal duty to protect the decedent from death. For example, drivers assume a legal duty to
  • drive safely to protect others from death every time they get behind the wheel.
  • The defendant breached that legal duty by causing the accident.
  • The decedent’s death occurred because the legal duty was breached.
  • The family members should be compensated by the defendant because their loved one suffered an untimely death.

Wrongful death claims can be complicated and confusing, which is why it is so important to have a personal injury attorney on your side. Let our skilled wrongful death attorneys provide you with advice and help you with the legal aspects of this difficult time in your life. As the survivor of a loved one, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia for the recovery of the following three different types of damages:

  • Compensation for the loss of the loving relationship, companionship, and comfort. Spouses can also recover
  • compensation for the loss of consortium of the decedent.
  • Compensation for the loss of the services the decedent would have provided in the household in the future.
  • Compensation for the loss of the financial support that the deceased provided to the family members prior to his or her death.

Client Testimonials

I chose this law firm due to the great reviews that I read online, and it was the best decision i’ve ever made! From start to finish the staff at Angell handled my cases really well. They are very professional, they know what they’re doing, and they have no problem answering questions and taking time to walk you through the process. When dealing with big insurance companies, it’s great to have a team to help negotiate to get what you truly deserve.
