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

At Holston & Huntley, LLC, our Atlanta, Georgia, wrongful death lawyers represent people like you, who have been impacted by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. Our personal injury and wrongful death attorneys are here to help you get through this unthinkable time. We have the experience, resources, and dedication necessary to fight for your rights.
Georgia Wrongful Death 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 a loved one killed in an auto collision or other incident. If there is no surviving spouse or child, the parents of the decedent may bring the wrongful death claim.
There are generally three elements that a wrongful death claimant must establish.
- The deceased’s death must have been caused by the defendant
- The conduct of the defendant must have been negligent, reckless, and/or intentional
- The claimant must be an appropriate party to bring the action
Compensation for a Wrongful Death Claim in Georgia
Forms of compensation in a wrongful death car accident — or any wrongful death 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. Finally, Georgia allows the executor of the deceased’s estate to bring a survival action. This allows you to recover damages for the deceased’s pain and suffering before death, medical expenses, and funeral and burial costs.
