Question:

What damages are available in a wrongful death case in Georgia?

Answer:

Damages Available in a Wrongful Death ClaimThere are multiple different types of benefits that are available for compensation in a wrongful death claim. If you’re reading this, you’re probably in the unfortunate position of feeling like you have a wrongful death claim regarding the passing of someone who’s close to you. We’re sorry that you find yourself in that position, but we’d like to help you navigate the legal circumstances of your claim.

Benefits that are applicable in these types of claims involve, first, various monetary values associated with the life of the person. A person whose life has been wrongfully taken from them has lost a great deal, and their estate is entitled to compensation for what that person missed out on in terms of experiences that they would have had in their life. Another type of damages is lost earnings that the person might have had in terms of future salary or future income. A third type involves the companionship that they would’ve brought to a partner or family member and that the person has now been deprived of as a result of the wrongful death.

It’s important to, in a situation such as this, hire an attorney who has experience with wrongful death claims because they can be very different than general personal injury harm cases.
