The loss of your loved one will bring up a host of emotions, even if the death was expected. When the loss was sudden, such as in a traffic crash, the feelings might be intensified. This is a difficult time for you and we understand that you might need to focus on healing now.
As things begin to settle down and your life slowly moves toward the new normal, you might realize that you need to do something about your loved one’s death. You might feel like you need to avenge that tragic death. This is understandable, but you need to make sure that you do this in the right way.
There might be some temptation to just put everything off until you don’t feel any pain from the death. Unfortunately, Georgia has time limits for how long you have to file a wrongful death claim. Even though you might not feel fully up for facing the situation, you should get this taken care of quickly. We are here to help you work through the legal aspects of filing this type of claim.
When you are thinking about a wrongful death claim, you need to look beyond the money. These cases do seek financial compensation; however, you might find that being able to hold the person who caused the accident accountable for your loved one’s death might mean more to you than cash.
We can work to keep your loved one at the center of the case so that you are keeping his or her memory alive. This isn’t going to be an easy process, but we will walk through it with you.
