When a loved one has been killed due to an accident or an intentional act, the effect on that person’s family is devastating. Our top priority in a wrongful death case is making sure we hold all responsible parties accountable.

Our experienced Atlanta wrongful death lawyer may be able to help you file a claim against the at-fault party responsible for the untimely death of your relative. While a lawsuit will never be able to replace the meaningful role he or she had in your life, it can help you recover compensation to which you are entitled due to the tragic loss. At The Graham Firm, our Atlanta wrongful death attorneys are committed to helping you seek justice for the loss of your loved one. We can oversee legal and financial issues while you focus on the well-being and emotional health of your family.

What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death is the loss of human life due to the careless, reckless or intentional behavior of another. A wrongful death lawsuit can be brought against a person, business or other entity that is responsible for the death. The purpose of this type of lawsuit is to provide financial stability to a family after a sudden accident that resulted in their relative’s death.

Some common accidents and acts that may provide grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit include:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products
  • Assault
  • Murder

The Georgia wrongful death statute of limitations is two years. This means that in most cases, a lawsuit must be filed against the at-fault party within two years from the date of the victim’s death. If the lawsuit is not brought within this time limit, the family may not be able to recover any compensation, regardless of how clear the defendant’s liability is. However, there are exceptions to this general time limit, so it is important to talk to an experienced wrongful death attorney in Atlanta GA to explore all possible options. Our compassionate personal injury lawyers assist clients in the metro Atlanta, Marietta, Griffin, and Macon, as well as rural areas, to recover compensation through filing a wrongful death lawsuit. We are often able to negotiate or mediate high settlements once we show we are prepared to take the case to trial and hold at-fault parties accountable.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In Georgia, there are only certain individuals who can recover compensation for the loss of a loved one, which includes:

  • The victim’s surviving spouse
  • The victim’s children
  • The victim’s parents
  • The administrator of the victim’s estate

How Can an Atlanta Wrongful Death Lawyer Help Me?

The best wrongful death attorneys will help a family with every aspect of the case.
