Q
What types of evidence is needed in a wrongful death case?

A

In order to have an effective wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia, there should be evidence of some sort against the person responsible for killing your loved one. For example, did the driver who hit your loved one just come from a bar? However, some cases won’t be so simple to prove, and evidence will need to be found in order to establish fault.

This is why families who have lost their loved ones due to the negligence of another person often turn to experienced wrongful death attorneys, as lawyers who handle wrongful death cases know what evidence is needed and know how to get it. Attorneys can review police reports and medical records as well as interview witnesses to establish liability.

An experienced Georgia wrongful death attorney will want to strengthen a case by also retaining experts. Appropriate experts can testify in a trial about the impact the loss has on the surviving family members. For such cases, we retain economic experts to analyze the economic loss of a loved one including the lost income, raises and promotions, inflation, benefits and retirement. By having an economic expert on your side, it can help place a true value on the case.

Wherever appropriate in your case, our law firm will use experts and information to your advantage to make sure you have a strong case. While our Peachtree City wrongful death lawyers sadly cannot bring back your loved one, we can do everything in our power to make sure your family is compensated fully for your losses. If you have lost a family member due to another’s negligence, call the Law Offices of Shane Smith at 770.487.8999 or contact us online today to learn more about your family’s rights to a financial recovery.
