Q
Why does it feel wrong to pursue a DUI wrongful death suit when my husband was killed by a drunk driver?

A

Bringing a wrongful death claim against someone can be difficult for many reasons. It involves holding someone accountable for his or her actions, facing the new reality of your life without your husband, and focusing on finances during a time when you may just want to cry.

You need to remind yourself of one thing: you are in this place because someone chose to get behind the wheel of a car and drive while intoxicated. That person caused you pain, grief, sorrow, and hardship, and that person deserves to be held accountable for his or her wrongdoings. To ensure that person doesn’t do this again to someone else, and don’t feel badly about pursuing a Georgia DUI wrongful death claim.

When you consider that your life will change without your spouse around, you do need to think about money at a time like this. Although thinking about finances after the death of your husband may seem wrong, you need to make sure you and your family are compensated for your pain and suffering and for all your future losses, such as lost income, loss of companionship, loss of services, and more. 

You deserve to seek justice and just compensation for the wrongs your family has suffered, and an Atlanta wrongful death suit may be able to give you just that. Plus, it will help you get closure and start moving forward in the healing process.
