|Losing someone we love is painful
enough when they die of natural causes. Learning that negligence was
the cause of their death can be devastating. When death is a result of
the misconduct or negligence caused by another person, company, or
entity, it may be considered wrongful death.
Robert S. Windholz, LLC, we understand that losing a member of your
family has a significant emotional and economical impact. While nothing
can replace a lost loved one, we work hard to seek if negligence is the
cause of death, helping you to ease the financial strain.
Wrongful death in Georgia
to Georgia law, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within two years
of the date of the death. When the death was caused by medical
malpractice, you must file suit within two years of the health care
paid to the surviving spouse, children, or parents. The amount of
compensation awarded in wrongful death cases is based on the following:
• Loss of companionship.
• Loss of family contributions.
• Lifetime lost earning capacity.
In medical malpractice suits including wrongful death,
damages are presently controlled by the 2005 reforms legislated at the
direction of Governor Purdue.
