Wrongful Death

Georgia Wrongful Death Attorneys

If you have lost a family member in a fatal accident, we are truly sorry for your loss.

At the Studstill Firm, LLP, we understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for you. We also realize that financial compensation is never enough to make up for the premature loss of your loved one.

Still, we believe in accountability. We believe in finding the person or business that caused your family member’s untimely death. We also believe in holding them responsible for their actions, and preventing this from happening to another family in the future.

People often have mixed emotions about speaking with a lawyer after losing a loved one. Many are uncomfortable making a monetary claim for their loved one’s premature death, because they know that money can’t bring that person back. It’s completely natural to feel this way.

Your Family Has a Legal Right to Compensation

However, a wrongful death claim can allow you to recover compensation for necessary and unexpected expenses you will now face. These include medical expenses, funeral costs, and future lost wages. Furthermore, financial compensation can be used to memorialize a family member’s life, pay for the educational needs of children, and support charities and churches.

The expenses you face now - without the help of your loved one - are not ones that you chose to face alone. In many cases, they aren’t ones for which you planned. The law recognizes this, and is designed to provide assistance to surviving family members that need it most after a tragedy. And oftentimes, insurance money is available for just this type of situation.

We can help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to for your loss. We will put our more 40 years of experience to work to ensure that the person or business responsible for your family member’s accidental death is held accountable for what they have done. We will help you find a way forward.

No matter what the circumstances were that killed your family member, our wrongful death lawyers can help.
