Passionate Representation For Wrongful Death Claims

If you have recently experienced the loss of a loved one in an accident caused by someone else's negligent or intentional actions, you may be confused about your rights or what to do next. At Brown Barnwell, our attorney knows how difficult this time may be and how uncertain your future seems.

We have advocated for many Georgia families, and we provide personal attention to resolve any legal issues you may be facing. You may have a claim to compensation for your loved one's wrongful death.

Understanding Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a civil claim to seek compensation in the name of your loved one as well as for your own losses. In Georgia, you may file a wrongful death claim if you have a particular relationship with the deceased:

  • The spouse of the deceased, who may also represent the deceased's minor children
  • Adult children if there is no spouse
  • The parents of the deceased if there is no spouse or children
  • The person appointed to represent the deceased's estate, who represents the next of kin

While it may be difficult to place monetary value on your loss, we can assist you in fighting for a fair and reasonable award that covers your losses as well as the suffering of your loved one.

What Damages Can You Expect?

Every case is different, and we will never mislead you about the potential for your damages. However, we are ready to work relentlessly to maximize your compensation by seeking the following allowable damages, as appropriate:

  • Final medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Present and future lost wages of your loved one
  • Expenses you incur because of the loss of the services your loved one provided
  • The value of your loved one's companionship
  • The value of the suffering your loved one endured

Having a lawyer to help you demonstrate these values can improve your chances of a successful claim.
