When Is a Death Considered “Wrongful?”

While some accidents are truly blameless, many fatal incidents are the result of careless, reckless, or intentional actions. When a death is caused by negligence, it is considered “wrongful.”

Wrongful deaths can occur as a result of many different types of accidents, including but not limited to:

In Georgia, certain surviving family members and dependents can bring a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for their damages. These damages may include the cost of medical expenses incurred prior to death, burial/funeral expenses, loss of expected financial support, loss of companionship, emotional distress, and more. In rare circumstances when a death is caused by particularly egregious negligence, surviving family members may pursue punitive damages, meant to punish the liable party and ensure that similar acts of negligence do not occur in the future.
