Who can be sued in a wrongful death lawsuit?


There are many parties that could be sued for wrongful death, but each case will have its own factors that may determine which parties could be found liable. Responsible parties could include companies, employees, government agencies and their contractors, manufacturers, designers, doctors, and individuals such as drunk drivers.

If your Norcross wrongful death case involved medical malpractice, the liable parties will be different than if your case involved a drunk driver. For example, in a medical malpractice wrongful death case, defendants may include the hospital, doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professionals. In a fatal car crash case that involved an intoxicated driver, the liable parties may include:

  • The drunk driver
  • The owner of the restaurant or bar where the drunk driver was served alcohol
  • The person who sold or served the impaired driver alcohol

In order to determine who may be held liable for your loved one’s wrongful death, you need to speak with an experienced Georgia wrongful death attorney today to discuss your case in detail. The Law Offices of Shane Smith will provide you with a complimentary, confidential consultation to answer your questions and help you determine who you may be able to sue for the wrongful death of your family member.
