Lawrenceville, Georgia Wrongful Death

Practice Area photo In the average year in Lawrenceville, Georgia roughly 50 people in car accidents. Nothing can replace the loss of those 50 lives, and no amount of money will make the family of the deceased forget that tragic moment. Nothing can compare to the hardships that each family had to endure. If you have lost a loved one because of someone else’s recklessness, Lawrenceville wrongful death attorney Charles Scholle can help.

Specific types of accidents that are classified as wrongful death in Georgia include car or airplane accidents, exposure to dangerous conditions in a work-related or supervised environment, criminal attacks, and medical mistakes. Oftentimes, the death of a loved one leaves more than just emotional damage. The dependents of the deceased individual can receive compensation for damages including loss of financial support, services, and other intangible qualities like companionship.The actions of others may have led to charges for emergency services or extensive hospital stays for injuries like burn injuries or spinal cord injuries. In addition to the burden of funeral expenses, the loss of income and financial support can continue to hurt your family by destroying your financial stability. You may even be at risk of losing your home, filing bankruptcy or not being able to pay for your children’s education.

In Georgia, the time limit for filing a wrongful death case is normally two years from the date of death. In order to get compensation for personal injury, conscious pain and suffering, and any medical expenses needed by a loved one prior to his or her death, the family of the deceased has to show that the death of the victim was caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness. If the family is unable to prove that another individual or company was at fault, then they will not receive any financial compensation under a wrongful death claim. It is for this reason that hiring an attorney who is experienced with wrongful death litigation is a wise step for most people. Having an experienced lawyer to parse through the legalities can help reduce the stress on the family at this trying time.

It should also be noted that the personal representative of the decedent’s estate is the only person who may bring a suit for wrongful death. Although there is no way for another person to fully comprehend the extent of what you are going through when you lose a loved one in an accident, there is help. Contact Scholle Law today to discuss your case and protect your legal rights.
