If a person dies because of the negligent or wrongful conduct of a person or business, surviving family members may file a lawsuit against those responsible for the death. In civil law surviving family members may file a wrongful death suit in order to recover financially from the loss of a loved one. There are many types of wrongful death cases. The most common are car accidents. Thousands of people die each year because of negligent or distracted drivers. Other wrongful death cases include: Medical or professional malpractice, accidents at work, defective products, truck accidents, and airplane crashes.
In Georgia, wrongful death laws define who may sue and what, if any, limits may be applied to a jury’s award for damages. Wrongful death laws were created to provide financial support for family members left to deal with both the emotional and economic loss of a loved one.
