Q
My husband was killed by another driver. Should I pursue a wrongful death case even if I can’t afford to hire an attorney?

A

I am very sorry to hear that you lost your husband in a Georgia car crash and would like to offer you my deepest condolences. Loosing someone close to you, especially a spouse, is the most heartwrenching experience a person can go through. Because of this, it can be difficult just to get out of bed in the morning let alone pursue a Georgia wrongful death lawsuit

There are many personal injury and wrongful death lawyers in the state of Georgia who provide their services on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not have to pay any money up front to get started. If a lawyer believes in your case, he can agree to take your case on a contingency fee. You won’t have to pay a cent unless your lawyer makes a recovery; your legal fees will come out of your recovery at the end of the case. However, if for some reason no recovery is made, you will not owe a dime. 

When looking for an attorney, do not turn to just any lawyer who offers a contingency fee structure. Make sure you also retain a lawyer who has experience working with wrongful death lawsuits. Getting the right attorney to help you fight this battle can mean everything to making sure you and your family receive the compensation that you deserve. 

Although you may not think that you can afford to hire an attorney, remember that attorneys generally get higher settlements for their clients than what they can recover on their own. An attorney will protect your interests and look out for you so that your financial future will be protected.
