How Could This Happen To Our Family?
Wrongful death happens when someone is killed either intentionally or through an act of negligence. If someone hurt your child through their negligent actions, they could be held liable for wrongful death. The same applies to anyone that behaves in a reckless manner that causes your son or daughter’s death. In the case of negligent behavior, it must be proven that the defendant owed your son or daughter a level of care and failed to apply this standard when necessary. This can occur in a variety of different circumstances, such as:
- Car, truck, or motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability
- Product liability
How Can a Georgia Wrongful Death Claim Help?
Of course, one of the main questions raised by those who have lost a child to wrongful death is: "What good will it do? The damage has already been done." To a certain degree, this is true. All the legal action in the world can't turn back time or undo what has been done. However, a successful wrongful death claim can help you overcome those immediate financial obstacles you may be facing, such as funerary expenses and doctor’s fees. In addition, any monies obtained will provide you and your family with the necessary space in which to recover.
