A sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one makes the grieving process associated with death even more difficult. The Mabrey Firm, P.C. is compassionately committed to the representation of families who suffer from such devastating losses of loved ones due to the negligence or misconduct of another. This is called wrongful death.

The Mabrey Firm’s Atlanta wrongful death attorneys are well-versed in the laws that govern wrongful death and can successfully navigate through the legal hurdles associated with prosecuting these claims. We can help provide closure by finding out why a loved one died.

We will also determine whether the death was avoidable. If the death was avoidable, then we can identify the responsible parties and pursue maximum justice under the Georgia wrongful death statute.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit?

In Georgia, only certain individuals are entitled to recover from the loss of a loved one. When the deceased is an adult, the surviving spouse generally is first in line to bring a wrongful death claim.

The spouse must share any recovery for the claim equally any surviving children of the deceased. If there is no surviving spouse, then the surviving children of the deceased may bring the action.

If there is neither a surviving spouse or surviving children, the surviving parents of the deceased may pursue the claim. Absent a surviving spouse, surviving children, or surviving parents, the administrator of the decedent’s estate can bring the claim on behalf of the estate.
