Cartersville Wrongful Death Lawyer

Woman Touching a Headstone

The shock of wrongfully losing a family member can emotionally cripple the grieving family members. The costs associated with extensive hospital stay while recovering from injuries as well as the funeral expenses of the victim can leave any family economically destitute.

The state of Georgia provides two years for filing a wrongful death lawsuit, but the sooner you take action, the better. The full measure of damages you can demand compensation for include:

  • The full value of the life of the deceased
  • Projected life income
  • Intangible damages

If your loved one has died due to the negligence of a third party, it could add considerable mental as well as financial stress on your family. The wrongful death attorneys at Scholle Law will go above and beyond to ensure your family recovers from the setback financially, and also receives the much needed closure a lawsuit can provide.

In many cases, the insurance company that provides coverage for the at-fault party will likely try to make a low offer that barely covers your losses. That is why it is important for families of wrongful death victims to contact a Bartow County wrongful death attorney who can help them recover the full compensation they should justly receive.

Our compassionate attorneys are here to talk to you about your case. Call us at (866) 592-1296 or contact us online today for a free, no-obligation consultation with a Cartersville wrongful death lawyer.

Timeline for a Cartersville Wrongful Death Case

Two young women in black clothes visiting cemetery with many white crossesYou may seek quick compensation after your loved one’s passing so you can pay bills and other expenses. However, speed can be an unrealistic expectation for a wrongful death case. 

A wrongful death suit that settles quickly may result in insufficient compensation. An insurance company may offer a fast settlement that is lower than the full compensation you deserve because they know you may be in need of the cash. 

We will take the necessary time to pursue the compensation you deserve. Working with a Cartersville wrongful death lawyer from our team can help you understand all of your options, from accepting a settlement deal to taking your case to court. We will explain how much compensation your claim is worth and help you avoid the regret that comes from accepting a quick, insufficient settlement. 

A wrongful death claim that results in maximum compensation can take time to settle. This is because: 

  • We need time to gather as much relevant information as possible
  • The insurance company may initially refuse to pay the full amount that you deserve
  • The insurance company may require drawn-out negotiations before agreeing to settle
  • Your case may need to go to trial (if settlement negotiations are not successful)
  • Trial may be a lengthy process, especially if the defendant does not accept liability for the death of your loved one

Your case may take months or longer. In some cases, filing the lawsuit and working through the legal system can take years. We can explain these possibilities. We will also explain how your family can remain financially afloat during this period.  

It’s essential that you find a Cartersville wrongful death lawyer who will work hard for you. Your case is too important to do otherwise.
