Understanding the Laws of Wrongful Death Claims
In Georgia, a wrongful death claim can be filed by those who survive a lost loved one. These claims are filed to pursue compensation for the full value that has been lost. This can include the monetary losses from potential income, as well as the emotional losses of raising children or enjoying life with a spouse. However, in order to be eligible to pursue these damages, you must file a claim within two years of the incident that resulted in the death of your loved one.
Who is eligible to file for wrongful death in Georgia?
- If survived by a spouse and children, the spouse can file on behalf of the children and himself or herself and the award is split between them all
- If survived by a spouse only, the spouse can file on behalf of himself or herself
- If survived by children only, the children can file and the award is split among them
- If not survived by spouse or children, a parent can file a suit
- If not survived by parent, spouse, or children, whoever is next of kin can file a suit on behalf of the estate
