Legal guidance regarding wrongful death claims

Posted in Blog,Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents on January 20, 2017

Car accidents are a leading cause of death in Georgia and throughout the country. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one fatality occurs every 16 minutes in a vehicle crash. Whether the victim was someone’s husband, wife, mother, father, daughter or son, the loss can have a huge emotional impact on the family. If the decedent was the family’s sole provider, the death could add serious financial burdens to the family as well.

If you are in a similar situation, you may be able to pursue compensation for your losses.
