The Myth of the Frivolous Lawsuit

If you believe there are too many civil lawsuits in America, you are not alone. In fact. A recent poll found that 87% of Americans believe there are too many civil lawsuits, going so far as to call several of them “frivolous.” But here’s the problem: over the past 20 years, civil lawsuits have declined by 80%. And in this time, personal injury lawsuits have also helped save countless lives by holding negligent corporations accountable for their actions.

What Does "The Full Value of a Life" Mean?

In many states, wrongful death suits restrict damages to the economic value of a loved one's lost wages and benefits. Perversely, this often means that poorer victims are valued less than richer victims in wrongful death cases.

Fortunately, Georgia's wrongful death statute allows families to pursue compensation for "the full value of the life" of their lost loved one. This means that our Atlanta wrongful death lawyers can help you pursue compensation for factors that go far beyond lost wages or other economic concerns.
