Determining Pecuniary Loss in Wrongful Death

Although the value of a human life cannot be measured in dollars, there are many different factors involved in calculating the compensation you are due. To gain recovery of the "full value" of the life of your parent, child, or spouse, the law takes the following things into consideration:

  • loss of companionship
  • loss of services
  • loss of parental income and future income

Wrongful death benefits are awarded to the beneficiary of the decedent. The immediate beneficiary would be the spouse of the deceased, and if there is no spouse, the children are next. If there are no children, the parents are entitled to benefits, and so on down the chain of relations. Awards of compensation are paid out to surviving family members in accordance with Georgia Code OCGA 51-4-2.

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
