COMPASSIONATE REPRESENTATION FOR GRIEVING FAMILIES
Losing a loved one, especially unexpectedly, is the most tragic event you can go through. The last thing on your mind while you’re mourning is pursuing legal action against the responsible party. However, this should be a concern, because the State of Georgia puts a two-year statute of limitations on filing wrongful death lawsuits. Our Fayetteville wrongful death lawyers will make the process as pain-free as possible during your time of grief.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?
Only certain people can make wrongful death claims. The spouse of the decedent may claim, and if there is no spouse then the children may make a claim. If there are no children involved, then the decedent’s parents may file a wrongful death suit. If there is no spouse, no children, or no parents, then the executor of the decedent’s estate may file a wrongful death claim.
There are multiple reasons that could be considered applicable to a wrongful death case. They include, but are not limited to:
- Negligent or careless conduct
- Death by automobile accident
- Unsafe prescription drugs
- Defective or dangerous products
- Unlawful or criminal acts
- Property defects
Once our Fayetteville wrongful death attorneys have helped you determine if you have a wrongful death claim, they will go about the business of putting together your lawsuit against the responsible party. Compensation may be available for the pain and suffering of the survivors, funeral expenses, loss of future wages (which may include raises), loss of the love of a parent, child, or spouse, emotional distress, loss of benefits (including retirement benefits), and punitive damages.
