What Is Wrongful Death?
In Georgia, wrongful death is defined as a loss of life that has directly been caused by another person's willful behavior or their sheer negligence. Even though this person may not have committed an intended murder, they need to be held accountable for their lack of duty and care. By claiming a wrongful death lawsuit, you can bring justice to the name of your loved one by forcing the perpetrator to own up to their deeds.
And of course, no financial compensation in the world could ever attempt to fill the hole left in your heart, Georgia's state laws regarding wrongful death are designed to help the surviving family members of the victim, so they are not facing monetary suffering in addition to emotional pain.
Types of Compensation You Could Receive
There is a whole host of potential claims you could seek compensation for, simply because the consequences of a wrongful death are so extensive and long-lasting. In addition to normal compensation for expenses, such as extremely high bills for hospitals and costs of medical treatments, victims can even seek to have punitive damages applied to the perpetrator if this person has clearly broken a law within the state of Georgia.
Other types of damages which are possible to claim during a lawsuit for wrongful death include:
- Trauma, stress, and suffering on the part of the deceased’s family
- The victim’s own unnecessary suffering caused by the untimely death
- Income loss from missing work to care for the victim
- Income loss from the passed victim, who can no longer support the family monetarily
- Cut retirement awards and benefits
