We help spouses, parents, and children who have lost family members in car accidents, truck and commercial vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents, as well as those lost to defective or dangerous products and hazardous conditions on another’s property.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Action?
In Georgia, a wrongful death is described as the death of a person caused by negligent, reckless, intentional, or criminal acts of another person or entity. Because the person affected by this wrongdoing cannot come forward with a claim, certain surviving family members may be able to take legal action on their behalf by way of a wrongful death lawsuit.
The following parties may be able file a wrongful death action in Georgia:
- The victim’s surviving spouse or children;
- The victim’s other surviving family members; or
- The personal representative of the victim’s estate.
It is important to note that there is a statute of limitations on these cases. You will have two years to come forward with a claim and may lose your right to take legal action if you try to file after that time. That is why it is essential to involve an Atlanta wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible.
