Fatal Accidents in Georgia
Fatal collisions occur far too often in our state. In many instances, innocent lives are lost in these fatal collisions due to the reckless and negligent actions of other drivers sharing the road. Unfortunately, the aftermath of fatal accidents often results in substantial suffering for bereaved families. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the death of your loved one, your family may have the ability to initiate a legal claim for compensation against the responsible party. Some common forms of economic and non-economic damages pursued in wrongful death cases include:
- The loss of social security benefits
- Burial expenses
- Lost inheritance
- Medical expenses
- The loss of healthcare and other benefits
- The loss of future earnings
- The loss of companionship (for spouses)
- Funeral expenses
- Lost income
- The loss of parental guidance (for children)
