In Georgia, pedestrian accidents are often devastating. Dealing with the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one can be quite challenging. This is especially true if your loved one has lost their life as a result of another person’s negligence.
After experiencing the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one, your family may be able to take legal action against the responsible party. One of the best things that you can do to protect your rights and your best interest is to file a wrongful death claim.
