Personal Injury Overview

Timmons Warnes, LLP represents clients who have wrongful death claims with understanding and compassion while intensively asserting our expertise against the at-fault party.

In Georgia, the term or phrase ďwrongful deathĒ encompasses a vast area of law in which someone elseís life has been lost because of the negligence or intentional act of another.  The right to sue in a Georgia wrongful death case transfers to the surviving spouse, or if there is no spouse, to the deceasedís heirs or the administrator of the decedentís estates.  Wrongful death claims are complex and require a Georgia lawyer with an extensive background in this area.

The spouse, children or parents of a person who has died because of another personís actions may recover the full value of the life lost; that is, the economic and non-economic value of the decedentís life.  The estate of the decedent, represented by his or her personal representative, may recover the accident-related expenses of the deceased and the funeral expenses.  In appropriate instances, the estate may also recover for the decedentís pain and suffering.
