Savannah Wrongful Death Attorneys
What Is Considered a Wrongful Death?
There’s nothing more devastating than losing a loved one – especially in a preventable accident. A wrongful death is defined as the death of an individual due to the negligent, reckless, intentional or criminal acts of another person or entity. If you have lost a beloved family member in a senseless act of violence or a negligent accident, you may be left to pick up the pieces and carry on while you foot the bill for medical expenses, funeral costs, and other related expenses. This injustice cannot be undone, but it can be addressed with a wrongful death claim.

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
Georgia recognizes two separate types of wrongful death claims. One that can be filed to recover, as the law states, the “full value of the life of the deceased” and one that seeks to compensate for the financial losses related to a loved one’s death.
The first type of wrongful death claims can be filed by or on behalf a family member of the deceased. Family members are also the ones who can recover any compensation won. The damages available for this type of claim are:
- Lost wages or benefits, including potential wages and benefits
- Loss of intangible benefits the deceased provided such as care and companionship
The second type of wrongful death claim can be filed by a representative of the deceased’s estate and is meant to compensate the estate of the deceased for expenses related to their untimely death, such as
- Burial or funeral costs
- Medical and hospital expenses
- Conscious pain and suffering the deceased endured
What is the Statute of Limitations on Wrongful Death Claims in Georgia?
In the state of Georgia, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years from the date of death. Because of this, it is crucial that you contact a trusted wrongful death lawyer in Savannah as soon as possible to get started on your case.
