What Damages Can I Recover for Wrongful Death?

In Georgia, there are two separate types of wrongful death claims. The first claim establishes the full value of the deceased person’s life and can be brought on behalf of the surviving members of the deceased’s family. 

This claim includes monetary damages related to the financial value of the deceased person’s life, including:

01

Lost Wages, Future Earnings, and Benefits

A family member may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and future earnings. This includes the compensation for the income the decedent would have contributed to the household if they had not passed.

02

Loss of Companionship

Loss of companionship includes damages for the emotional loss of not having the deceased’s guidance and companionship

03

Loss of Consortium

The loss of the benefits of a spousal and family relationship.

The second type of wrongful death claim helps relieve any financial losses the estate or surviving family member incurred as the result of the untimely loss of their loved one. This claim can be filed by an eligible family member of the estate and establishes and recovers any losses the estate suffered due to the death. 
Damages can include:

  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Daños materiales
  • Pain and suffering that the deceased person endured just before their death.
  • Medical expenses can include the cost of medical care and treatment for the decedent before they pass.

What Are Common Causes of Wrongful Death?

  • Car accidents
  • Negligencia médica

What is the Statute Of Limitations for Wrongful Death in Georgia?

Eligible family members will have two years from the date of death to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If they fail to file by the deadline, their case may be dismissed and they will be unable to recover any compensation for their losses. At the Hines Law Firm, our wrongful death lawyers will guide you through the complex legal process and handle every aspect of your case, including ensuring a lawsuit is filed within the statute of limitations.

At the Hines Law Firm, our wrongful death attorneys work on a contingency fee basis.
