Has someone close to you died due to someone else’s actions? While you take time to mourn the loss of your loved one, it may be helpful to learn about wrongful death. As Atlanta wrongful death lawyers, a common question we hear is, “How are awards determined in a wrongful death suit?”

If you are considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia, you should know that the value of the suit is determined by the decedent’s life. When the court determines your award, it is based on the full value of your loved one’s life.

So, how can the court determine what your loved one’s life was worth and how the loss of life financially affects the future of your family? An experienced wrongful death lawyer knows how to build a case using solid evidence that includes both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages include:

  • Medical bills related to the death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost income you anticipated your loved one would earn
  • Loss of medical insurance coverage
  • Loss of their pension plan and other benefits

Non-economic Damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of love
  • Mental anguish

The loss of a family member is very difficult and painful, especially when that loss occurs from a wrongful or criminal act by someone else. The pain can be compounded when you are left in a financial mess. Allow an experienced Douglas County wrongful death attorney to help you determine the full compensation you deserve by calling the Law Offices of Shane Smith today.
