The preventable death of a loved one may be the most tragic thing any of us could experience. Losing a parent, spouse, sibling or child to another party’s careless mistake may affect your family in many ways. Besides the shock and grief, there may be a financial burden caused by your relative’s death.

Wrongful Death Litigators In Augusta

If your family has experienced a wrongful death resulting from a personal injury accident, you could be entitled to substantial financial compensation. Our attorneys at Harrison & Medlin, P.C., represent families in wrongful death litigation in East Georgia, including the Augusta metro area. We will help you get compensation for the deceased’s lost wages, medical bills and funeral expenses, as well as the emotional trauma you have experienced.

Understanding Georgia’s Wrongful Death Laws

Under Georgia law, there are two avenues for wrongful death compensation. One type of compensation is meant to compensate the deceased’s estate and is sought by the personal representative. The other is meant to compensate the estate for the cost of the deceased’s medical care, funeral preparations, pain and suffering, and other losses.

The law also recognizes that you and your family have suffered a tremendous loss. You have the right to seek compensation for your emotional trauma, loss of companionship and other effects of your loved one’s untimely death in a car accident or other accident.
