Do I Have A Wrongful Death Case?
You can file a wrongful death claim if a person was negligent, reckless, intentional, or committed a criminal act that resulted in your loved one passing away. The responsible party may not have taken reasonable action to prevent injury or did something a reasonable person would know could result in harm to another. In some cases, you may have to file a personal injury and wrongful death claim. Family members and the estate executor can file claims on the decedent’s behalf.
A Lawsuit May Be Necessary To Obtain Compensation
The sooner you file a lawsuit, the better your chances can be of moving the case forward as quickly as possible so you can fight for compensation. Compensation that may be available to you includes the economic and non-economic value of one’s life, loss of companionship, medical costs, burial and funeral costs, and pain and suffering.
Your prompt action may also be able to prevent another death in certain situations. We are highly regarded trial lawyers in Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida.
