Fulton Wrongful Death Lawyer

Wrongful Death Damages and Compensation

When someone you love is killed in a truck accident, nothing can truly compensate you for the loss. Nevertheless, you should not allow the liable party to get away with their reckless behavior without being held accountable. In cases involving wrongful death, immediate family members have the right to file a claim and recover compensation for the following types of damages:

  • Funeral/burial expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship and consortium

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Georgia

The Georgia statute of limitations for personal injury is two years, but loss of consortium extends the time restraint to four years (O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33). This means that you have four years from the time of your loved one's death to file a claim and fight for compensation. There is no exact amount that can be determined for damages such as pain and suffering and loss of consortium, which is why it is very important that you retain an aggressive and experienced Fulton trucking accident lawyer. They will be the only person who can handle your case in a way that results in maximum compensation.
