What Damages Are Available in a Wrongful Death Case?

In Georgia, damages awarded to the appropriate parties affected by the loss can include:

  • The expected loss in income of the person who died
  • Expenses accrued related to the injury causing the death, including medical care, treatment, and hospitalization costs
  • Expenses involved in the funeral
  • Awarded money based on the loss of quality of life due to losing your loved one

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Georgia?

After the loss of a loved one, you and your family may have many questions. One of the most common questions in cases of wrongful death is who can file a wrongful death claim.

According to Georgia law a spouse, child, or parent, grandparent or sibling may file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. A child of the deceased may only bring a claim if there is no surviving spouse.

Likewise, a parent of the deceased may only file a claim if there is no surviving spouse or child. In cases where there is no surviving spouse, child, or parent a representative of the deceased’s estate may file a wrongful death claim, recoverable by the deceased’s next of kin.
