If your loved one was killed by a drunk driver in Georgia, a wrongful death lawsuit can help you and your family find justice and accountability for your loss.

In Georgia, a surviving spouse must file the wrongful death claim. Any money that is awarded must be divided equally between the spouse and any surviving children. If there is no surviving spouse, the children of the victim may file the Georgia wrongful death claim. If there is no surviving spouse or children, then the parents of the Georgia DUI victim may pursue a wrongful death claim. If the deceased was unmarried, and had no surviving children or parents, the administrator of the estate of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim on the behalf of the estate.
