What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Wrongful death lawsuits are designed to provide financial relief to the families of those that died as a result of third-party negligence. While no amount of money can reverse the damage done, compensation can ease the financial burden associated with the loss of a loved one. Lost wages of the deceased, funeral costs, and loss of companionship are among the damages most commonly sought in wrongful death cases.
Georgia law allows an individual to file a wrongful death claim if the death was caused by a crime, negligence, or a defective product. In a successful lawsuit, the individual who filed the claim can recover the “full value of the life of the decedent.”
What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death could result from all types of fatal incidents, such as car/motorcycle accidents, surgical errors, medication errors, and defective products.
In some cases, negligence can be attributed to a group, such as a government agency or company: For example, a defective product enters the market and an individual dies while using it. The company responsible for the product is liable for the wrongful death of the individual because their negligence allowed it to enter the market.
