Atlanta Wrongful Death Attorney

Losing a loved in an accident is never less than shocking and tragic. Every client who comes through our doors with a wrongful death case is usually still reeling from the shock of their loss, and the gravity of what that loss will mean to the future of their families. Although a monetary reward cannot replace the life of a lost loved one, it can help families pay for medical bills and other expenses incurred and relieve the financial burden during an already difficult time. Our firm specializes in handling wrongful death cases in Georgia. Good wrongful death attorneys don’t just deal with the business end of a client’s loss. We make sure families are provided with every dollar of the compensation they need to move on financially, while being supportive of their needs emotionally. I have years of experience assisting grieving loved ones of fatally injured family members pursue just compensation for loss of life.

How do I know if I am legally entitled to file a wrongful death suit in Georgia? Georgia state law allows spouses and children of a family member who wrongfully lost their life to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If there are no spouses or children that are still living, the next of kin may file a wrongful death suit. In order to file a wrongful death suit in the state of Georgia, the acts or omissions of the defendant must be proven to be the proximate cause (the direct series of events) of the family member’s injuries and subsequent wrongful death. Simply put, the death was caused by someone else’s negligence.

What Type of Compensation can the Family Members Seek in a Wrongful Death Suit?

  • Medical Bills
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Loss of Wages
  • Loss of Benefits and Future Gains (Earnings)
  • Loss of Emotional Support
  • Punitive Damages*

*Punitive damages could possibly be awarded in a wrongful death case if the defendant's actions are shown to be particularly negligent and reckless. Punitive damages are awarded at the discretion of the jury and are used to punish the defendant for his actions.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
