Auto accidents happen every day in the city of Atlanta. Unfortunately, some of the auto accidents result in fatalities. If your loved one died in an auto accident due to another person’s negligence, you may be able to file an insurance claim and wrongful death lawsuit to receive compensation for your loss. The Atlanta personal injury attorneys at The Krause Law Firm work hard as legal advocates for families who have lost loved ones in auto accidents. We will let you know what your rights are and will guide you through the legal aspects of handling a wrongful death claim.
Auto Accident Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death lawsuits are a way for families to be compensated for the loss they suffer when a loved one has died due to another person’s negligent and reckless actions. There are benefits available to families through auto insurance when a loved one has died. Litigation may be pursued if an appropriate settlement cannot be reached with the insurance company.
If it is determined that the negligence of other parties led to the loved one’s death, filing wrongful death lawsuits against the responsible parties is also an option. For instance, in some cases, the negligent actions of the vehicle or auto parts manufacturer may have directly contributed to the accident and subsequent fatality.
Financial Recovery in Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Dealing with the death of a loved one is a very painful experience. We know that the financial contributions the deceased person made to the family are only a small fraction of their overall value to the family dynamic. Wrongful death claims exist to help families deal with the financial losses they encounter after the loved one has died. We spend a lot of time planning and assessing the appropriate amount of financial compensation for a family based on each family’s circumstances and Georgia laws.
