Bringing a Wrongful Death Claim in Georgia
The death of a family member involved in a auto collision is a difficult emotional experience.

At Holston & Huntley, LLC, our Atlanta, Georgia, lawyers represent people in personal injury and wrongful death auto collision claims. We have the experience, resources and dedication necessary to assert your rights.
Injury Attorneys Guiding Bereaved Families
Georgia’s wrongful death statute provides that a surviving spouse of the decedent or the decedent’s children can recover damages for the full value of the life of their loved on after they are killed in an auto collision. Also, if there is no surviving spouse or child, then the parents of the decedent may bring the wrongful death auto collision claim.
There are generally four elements that a wrongful death auto collision claimant must establish. The deceased death must have been caused by the defendant; the conduct of the defendant must have been negligent, reckless, intentional. Additionally, the wrongful death auto collision claimant must be an appropriate party to bring the action.
Compensation for a Wrongful Death Claims Georgia
Forms of compensation in a wrongful death car accident often include economic damages such as projected lifetime income and the lost value of services. Additionally, you may recover non-economic damages which include the loss of care, companionship and other intangible benefits. Lastly, Georgia allows the executor of the deceased estate to bring a survival action because this allows you to recover damages for the deceased pain and suffering before death, medical expenses and funeral and burial costs.
