What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
A wrongful death lawsuit is a legal action that helps a family that has lost a loved one recover compensation. It is a lawsuit filed by heirs of the deceased or the representative of the Estate against the individual or corporation deemed responsible for the wrongful death. A wrongful death claim is separate from any criminal prosecution of a defendant for misconduct or malice leading to a person’s death. Even if a wrongdoer has been charged or convicted in a criminal court related to your loved one’s death, a civil lawsuit seeking monetary damages may still be possible.
Unfortunately, the loss of life due to the negligence of others is frequently commonplace. The most common types of accidents that lead to wrongful death lawsuits in Georgia are automotive accidents such as fatal traffic accidents caused by tractor trailers and drunk drivers. Wrongful deaths also may be caused by medical malpractice or negligence by health care professionals and by unsafe products with defective designs. Intentional acts of violence such as a deadly assault also are the basis for many wrongful death actions. Wrongful death cases can be extremely complex, and the financial stakes are high. It is important to seek the help of an experienced wrongful death attorney.
