If you or a family member is the victim of an accident suffering a severe injury, or a loss of life, there are several things you’ll need to think about before handling a claim and finding the right Atlanta wrongful death law firm.
How do you know if it is wrongful death?
Wrongful death claims intend to help the family of a wrongful death victim achieve financial compensation through a lawsuit. Wrongful death claims are separate from criminal charges and are a lawsuit against the responsible party in which negligence was causing the lethal accident.
What to expect from the lawsuit?
What any wrongful death lawyer would have to do when approached with a claim is to validate the claim. For the claim to be rightful, we would have to prove that someone else caused the death by negligence. Examples of valid wrongful death claims could be malpractice by medical professionals or car accidents caused by drunk driving.
The first thing your lawyer would have to do is prove that the sued party is negligent and had the chance to prevent the accident, causing the wrongful death from happening. Let me illustrate with an example. Your family doctors’ job is to provide the best available medical care. If he doesn’t fulfill this obligation, and actions taken by the doctor were negligent, causing the loss of life from one of your family members, your family would have a valid claim filing for wrongful death against the doctor.

Next, the lawyer would have to present a court of law how the doctor breached his responsibilities, causing the wrongful death. This might require other medical professionals to examine the evidence and explain how the doctor’s actions caused your family member’s death. Our wrongful death experts would then have to show the court how the family has struggled with hardship after their family member’s death. This can be a financial hardship, and various other cases of hardship the family have endured since the death.
