What Is Considered a Wrongful Death?

In the state of Georgia, wrongful death is defined as a death caused by a criminal act, negligence, or a defectively manufactured product, whether due to negligence or not. Atlanta families may encounter wrongful death situations stemming from various incidents, including traffic collisions on GA-400 or Roswell Road, medical errors at local healthcare facilities, or even defective products.

Georgia Statute of Limitations on Wrongful Death Cases

Georgia law allows the deceased's family to pursue a civil claim for "the full value of the life of the decedent," regardless of any criminal charges. It's important to note that wrongful death claims typically must be filed within two years of the death, or within two years following the conclusion of any related criminal case.
