Cumming Injury Lawyers Litigate Wrongful Death Actions
Highly professional legal services from concerned Georgia attorneys
The injury cases that most demand accountability are those that have caused a tragic death. If you have lost a loved one due to negligence by a person, corporation or other entity, Lipscomb, Johnson, Sleister, Dailey & Smith, LLP can give your case the care and attention it deserves. Our trial lawyers are adept at managing investigations, assembling evidence and building a substantial case in various types of accident scenarios. Although we are able to settle most cases through principled negotiations, justice sometimes requires that we take the case to court. Should your case go to trial before a judge or jury, you can rely on our meticulous preparation and finely honed courtroom skills, as we pursue optimum results.
In Georgia, who is eligible to bring a wrongful death lawsuit?
A person’s death affects so many people, yet very few have legal standing to claim losses. In Georgia, the following persons can bring a lawsuit for wrongful death:
- A surviving spouse (for self and minor children)
- If no spouse, the children
- If no surviving spouse or children, surviving parents
- If none of the above, a personal representative of the decedent’s estate
The damages that wrongful death plaintiffs may claim include compensation for:
- The intrinsic value of the life of the deceased person
- Lost wages and benefits based on a reasonable life expectancy
- Medical expenses related to the injury event
- Funeral and burial costs
- Conscious pain and suffering the deceased endured prior to death
Wrongful death can arise out of virtually any type of injury scenario: an auto accident, slip and fall, product defect, or medical malpractice, to name just a few. Our injury attorneys have extensive experience litigating a wide variety of wrongful death cases in Forsyth County and throughout northern Georgia. We have the knowledge, skill and determination to fight for you along with the personal concern and attention you need during this difficult process.
