Wrongful death lawsuits generally involve four elements:
A person dies unexpectedly as the result of the negligence of another person, because of the use of a defective product, or after being intentionally killed through murder or violence.
The person (or company, in the case of a wrongful death caused by a defective product) was negligent, liable (for producing a product), or acting intentionally (as in the cause of death by murder or violence).
Surviving family members and/or dependents are suffering some monetary loss as the result of the loss of income of the deceased.
A personal representative has been appointed to oversee the estate of the deceased.
Under Georgia Law, close relatives of the decedent (including the surviving spouse, children, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, and stepchildren of the deceased) are entitled to be compensated for certain specific damages they may have suffered as a result of the decedent’s death. These damages include:
Loss of financial support
Loss of services
Loss of the love, affection, companionship, and society of the decedent
Funeral and Burial expenses
