Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil suit filed against the negligent party completely independent of any criminal charges. The surviving spouse, children, or parents of the deceased are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income and benefits, and more. In addition, if the negligent party’s actions were malicious or criminal in nature, the family may be awarded punitive damages, which are designed to punish the negligent party. A wrongful death lawyer from Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC, with clients in Atlanta, Marietta, and Roswell, can evaluate your particular case and discuss how much you can reasonably expect to be compensated.
The law limits the amount of time you have to bring legal action against the party responsible for the death of your loved one. If you fail to file your lawsuit before the filing deadline, or statute of limitations, has passed, you could be permanently barred from ever getting into court to seek compensation in your case. Your wrongful death lawyer from Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC in Atlanta, Marietta, and Roswell will see to it that your case is filed in a timely fashion.
