Q
My father was injured in an Atlanta car accident, but he died before claiming personal injury compensation. What are my rights?

A

Your family's rights will depend on whether your father died as a result of the injuries he sustained in the Atlanta car accident or if he died from unrelated causes.
 
If your father died from injuries sustained in the accident, then his spouse and children may recover damages through a Georgia wrongful death lawsuit. To learn more, read our article, "How Are Damages Calculated in Atlanta Wrongful Death Cases?"
 
If your father died from other causes, his Atlanta personal injury claim may be brought be brought by the executor of his estate.  
 
Every case is different. To discuss your loved one's accident claim with a Georgia wrongful death attorney, contact the Law Offices of Shane Smith at 770-HURT-999.
