Atlanta Wrongful Death Lawyer

Personal Injury Attorney Helping Victims Who Lost a Loved One Due to Wrongful Death in Georgia

Suffering through the wrongful death of a loved one can be a heart-wrenching, overwhelming experience, often worsened by the fact that the death could have been avoided had the negligent defendant(s) exercised proper care.

In Georgia, wrongful death can be caused by a number of different factors, such as the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another.
Depending on the nature of your relationship with the deceased, you may be entitled — pursuant to Georgia wrongful death laws — to recover damages as compensation for your various injuries. If the law does, in fact, entitle you to recover for the wrongful death of your loved one, then the personal representative of the deceased will have to file suit on your behalf.

If six months have passed after the death of the decedent, and the personal representative has not filed a wrongful death action, then Georgia law entitles any potential beneficiary to bring an action on behalf of all persons entitled to a share of wrongful death damages.

Every wrongful death lawsuit is unique and must be tailored to the particular circumstances of the case. As such, in order to maximize the possibility of recovering for wrongful death, you’ll want to work with an experienced wrongful death attorney.

Attorney McAfee has specialized in handling cases involving wrongful death claims that arise from the following circumstances:

  • Motorcycle accidents

Damages in Wrongful Death Actions

Damages in a wrongful death action are essentially those damages that you suffered resulting from the loss of your loved one. Wrongful death damages include, but are not necessarily limited, to the following:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of services
  • Loss of support and guidance
  • Loss of financial contributions
  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses
Avoid Speaking with Insurance Companies

Due to the complicated nature of most wrongful death claims, insurance companies work aggressively to limit their liability. As such, it is critical that you avoid speaking with any insurers without the guidance of an attorney — do not attempt to enter into any negotiations or settlements with insurance companies before consultation with an experienced wrongful death attorney.
