A wrongful death claim is a legal action brought under Georgia’s Wrongful Death Statute, which allows a family member (i.e., surviving spouse, children, parents, etc.) of the deceased or an appointed representative to seek compensation for the loss of their loved one. You have the right to seek the full value of your loved one’s life, including medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of earnings, compensation for pain and suffering and other damages.
We understand that this is a difficult time for your family and no amount of money can compensate for your loss. Holding any and all liable parties accountable for the loss of your loved one’s life can provide closure and help you heal from this traumatic event.
Generally, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two (2) years from the date of death. With some exceptions, if the claim is not filed within this two (2) year time limit, you may be barred from pursuing a wrongful death claim. As such, time is of the essence and it is vital that you reach out to Kanani Law Firm to gather the answers to your questions.
