Q
My wife died in a car accident due to someone else’s fault. Since she had life insurance, why would I want to take the time to pursue a wrongful death claim?

A

We are truly saddened to hear of your loss.

While it may seem like her life insurance may be enough to cover your additional expenses right now, many people find the life insurance policy from their deceased spouse isn’t adequate in the long term. A wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia can allow you to collect “the full value of the life of the decedent without deducting for any of the necessary or personal expenses of the decedent had he [she] lived.”

With a wrongful death claim, you can collect for your wife’s medical bills, funeral costs, loss of lifetime income, general enjoyment of life, and more. While you may not want to put yourself through the legal process, it may be the best thing to ensure that you and your family have enough finances to live on and to seek justice against the negligent party.

Some wrongful death cases are settled prior to filing a lawsuit or before going to trial; however, others could take years to come to fruition. While we understand you may not want to invest this time or deal with a case for a couple years, we want to encourage you to engage the right lawyer who will handle this case for you. A skilled Peachtree City wrongful death attorney can help you understand the law and your rights, complete necessary paperwork, reduce your anxiety levels, prepare you for the case, and provide you with comfort knowing that there is someone pursuing your case to seek justice and just compensation for your family.
