The wrongful death of a loved one is a tragic event for the entire family. Losing a loved one is by far one of life’s most difficult experiences. However, when such a death has been caused by negligent or wrongful behavior such as drunk driving, substandard medical care or the manufacturing of defective products, the pain can be exponentially worse as feelings of grief and loss are intensified. Coping with a loved one’s death can be made even further difficult when dealing with mounting medical bills, loss of financial support and funeral arrangements and expenses. Our team at Flynn & Gottlieb represents the family members in bringing a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased, and helps to provide comfort and guidance in scary and often overwhelming time.
Any death that is caused by the negligence or reckless conduct of another individual, corporation, government entity, etc. may be grounds for a wrongful death claim. There are numerous types of claims that can constitute wrongful death, including the following common types:
- Medical malpractice
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Workplace accidents
The attorneys at Flynn & Gottlieb understand that nothing can bring your loved one back. However, our aggressive and dedicated team of attorneys can protect your rights and the rights of your family, and works to help you receive the maximum compensation you need and deserve following your tragic loss. This can include compensation for medical expenses, loss of companionship, financial loss, funeral costs, possible punitive damages, and any other wrongful death-related expenses. Time is of the essence, however. Georgia, like all states, has limitations on the amount of time in which wrongful death claim may be filed. In addition, it is important to begin taking action soon to preserve the evidence needed to build your case.
For the families of many wrongful death victims, the tort system serves to provide closure and accountability. It is important that the person responsible for the wrongful death of your loved one be held responsible for their actions and the pain and suffering they have caused.
