Georgia's Wrongful Death Law
The state of Georgia's wrongful death statute allows a surviving spouse, a child (if there is no spouse) or parents (if there is no spouse or child) to pursue compensation for "the full value of the life" of the lost loved one.
In many states, wrongful death compensation is restricted to economic damages, such as lost wages. This can mean that a poorer family is disadvantaged in the courts. However, Georgia law also allows for the pursuit of non-economic damages as well.
As such, our Atlanta wrongful death lawyers can usually pursue compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Emotional pain and suffering
- The value of lost companionship
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
