Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death can involve a careless act such as inattentive driving, a reckless act such as putting a dangerous drug on the market without sufficient testing or an intentionally violent act such as murder. Defendants often involved in a wrongful death lawsuit include construction companies, food companies, doctors/nurses, drunk drivers, toy manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and more. If you have lost a loved one in a tragic accident at the hands of a negligent party, turn to our Cobb County wrongful death attorneys at Herbert Chestnut & Associates.
What Damages Could I Be Entitled to Receive?
In Georgia, the individuals who can pursue a wrongful death case include the victim's spouse, the children of the deceased, the parents of the deceased, or the executor of the deceased's estate. Consult an attorney to find out if you qualify to file one for your loved one. While no amount of money can make up for the injustice and hurt you are experiencing, an award can help you begin to move forward.
Family members who have lost a loved one can receive compensation for:
- Cost of medical bills and funeral expenses
- Los wages that the decedent would have earned, including retirement benefits.
- Pain and suffering, including the loss of your loved one's companionship.
- Reimbursement for the loss of inheritance for children.
- Punitive damages
