Wrongful Death Laws in Georgia
In the state of Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is 2 years. If you don't file a lawsuit within 2 years of the date of your loved one's death, your claim may be denied. That is why it is important to get in touch with our knowledgeable Richmond Hill wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. The personal representative of the decedent's estate, which is often a spouse, child, or parent of the decedent, is often the one to file the wrongful death claim.
What Compensation May I Be Entitled to in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
If your loved one has been killed by someone else's actions, you have the right to pursue compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. Our firm will discuss your options and help you file a claim to hold negligent physicians accountable.
Damages awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit may include:
- Lost wages and benefits of the decedent
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of consortium, care, and companionship
- Pain and suffering of the decedent prior to death
- Medical bills related to the decedent's final injury or illness
We will analyze your situation and provide legal guidance as you seek the highest amount of compensation available. Medical malpractice, such as surgical errors, anesthesia or medication errors, and errors during childbirth, could have fatal consequences. Physicians, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other medical personnel owe a duty of care to patients. This involves providing accurate and reasonably safe treatment to protect patients' health and well-being. If your doctor breached this duty of care and caused your loved one's death, he or she must be held responsible.
