Q
Can I get my counseling costs covered by the driver responsible for killing my husband in a crash?

A

People who have lost their loved ones to wrongful death car crashes in Georgia should not have to worry about paying for their counseling costs and lost income due to the death of their family members. However, drivers responsible for fatal wrecks aren’t going to hand over hundreds of thousands of dollars to victims’ loved ones. This is why every driver should have insurance coverage.

The insurance company for the other driver should take all of your losses and costs into consideration before they make you a settlement offer. Unfortunately, insurers are known for not offering a fair amount of money, even when a fatality is involved. 

If you are not being offered just compensation, you should seek justice through a Georgia wrongful death lawsuit. By pursuing a lawsuit, you can seek damages for all of your counseling costs—even future counseling costs—in addition to other damages, such as funeral costs, lost income, loss of companionship, loss of services, pain and suffering, and more. 

To make sure you receive every penny you are entitled to following such a tragic time in your life, you need to make sure you have someone looking out for your best interest.
