The death of a loved one, even when due to a long-term illness or advanced age, is one of the toughest times any family must endure. But it can be devastating if their life was unexpectedly cut short due to someone else’s negligence.

Types of Wrongful Death Compensation
In addition to the grief your family is experiencing, you also may be dealing with an uncertain financial future—especially if they were the primary income source for your family. To make matters worse, their death can leave you with many expenses you might not be able to afford.
Our legal team will fight to maximize your compensation for things like:
- Medical bills
Ambulance rides, prescription medications, lab tests, surgeries, and overnight stays in the hospital can quickly add up to big bills that you might not be able to afford. And unfortunately, medical bills don’t go away when patients pass. When we take on your claim, we’ll make sure the insurance company knows how much the hospital charged you for your loved one’s treatment.
- Lost wages
Thinking about how you’re going to provide for yourself and the rest of your family after losing a secondary or primary source of income can be frightening and stressful. But unlike medical bills, lost income continues to add up and affect your family week after week, month after month, and year after year. We’ll calculate the financial impact of your loved one’s death, and we’ll pursue full compensation on your family’s behalf.
- Funeral expenses
You want to preserve their memory and celebrate your loved one’s life, but the costs associated with funerals can be unaffordable. Our legal team will do everything we can to help you get compensated for the expenses you incur when making plans to lay your loved one to rest.
- Full value of the life of the deceased person
In addition to dollar damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and funeral bills, Georgia courts allow recovery for the full value of the life of the deceased, as determined by a jury. This means that a dollar figure is created by the jury based on how they lived and their relationships with others.
With nearly 20 years of experience assisting families experiencing difficult times, our legal team knows how to provide a helping hand during some of life’s most difficult moments.
