Q
What should my family expect to recover after a boater killed my spouse on a Georgia lake?

A

It’s a dreadful day when loved ones are taken from their families, especially when many deaths could have been prevented. If your spouse was killed due to the negligence of a boat operator or owner, or if the boat was defective, Georgia state law allows for you to be compensated through a wrongful death lawsuit.

The compensation that families of victims who have suffered a Georgia wrongful death accident can recover include:

  • Medical and hospital expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Future lost income
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other damages

While our Peachtree City wrongful death lawyers cannot provide you with a certain dollar amount without reviewing the particulars of your case, we can tell you that we will work hard to hold the responsible party accountable for the death of your spouse and do everything we can to maximize your case value.

Sadly, nothing can make up for the loss of a spouse, even financial compensation; however, recovering damages through a wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia can help you recover financially so that you are not left with a financial loss.

For help securing the compensation and justice you need following the loss of your spouse, contact a caring and knowledgeable Fayette County wrongful death attorney at the Law Office of Shane Smith at 770.487.8999 for a complimentary consultation today.
