How Wrongful Death Occurs

- Medical Malpractice
- Nursing Home Negligence
- Auto Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
- Slip and Fall/Premises Liability
Wrongful Death Compensation
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 a portion of any recovery for the claim with all children of the deceased. However, the spouse is guaranteed a one-third percentage of any recovery. If there is no surviving spouse, then the children of the deceased may bring the action and would share equally in any award.
The Mabrey Firm will assist your family in appointing the appropriate representative for your loved one’s estate to pursue the claim. We will work tirelessly throughout the course of the litigation to ensure that you recover the full value of the life of your loved one. Finally, we will assist you in the distribution of any monetary proceeds from the wrongful death claim.
