Understanding Wrongful Death in Georgia:

  1. Legal Definition: Wrongful death in Georgia is defined as a death caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another party. These cases often arise from various situations, including car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, and more.
  2. Eligible Parties to File Suit: Georgia law specifies who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Typically, it is the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the deceased. If none of these parties are available, a personal representative of the deceased person’s estate may file the lawsuit.
  3. Recoverable Damages: In a wrongful death case, eligible parties may seek compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. This includes medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering.
