Atlanta Wrongful Death Attorneys
Pursuing Justice on Behalf Victims
In the worst personal injury cases, the victim passes away due to the severe and perhaps catastrophic injuries they sustained in an accident. This is often a devastating time for the loved ones involved; and the legal situation surrounding these circumstances can become incredibly complicated. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or recklessness of another, don’t attempt to navigate the legal system on your own. Not only will this be an added amount of stress, a small mistake could lead to compensation that doesn’t cover your needs, or even no compensation at all!
At Ross & Pines, LLC, we understand that compensation doesn’t seem like an important thing in light of what you and your loved ones are going through. However, it can relieve your financial burden after the loss of a loved one. With this goal in mind, our Atlanta wrongful death lawyers will fight tenaciously on your behalf and pursue compensation from the appropriate parties. Because of our experience and connections, we can also stand by your side throughout the prosecution of the person responsible for causing the death of you loved one.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Georgia law has specific rules as to who can file a wrongful death claim. According to this law the following people can file a wrongful death claim:
- The deceased’s spouse
- The deceased’s child
If the deceased does not have any of the above, then the surviving parents of the deceased or the personal representative of the deceased’s estate can bring a claim.

Compensation in a Wrongful Death Claim
There is no set amount of compensation in any given case. However, many factors will be taken into consideration when determining the amount that the surviving loved ones will be left. Compensation may be awarded to cover various expenses.
Compensation could include the following:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical care before passing
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Loss of consortium
- Lost future wages
- And more
Especially if the deceased was the primary breadwinner of the family, compensation is crucial in ensuring that the remaining family members are financially taken care of. At Ross & Pines, LLC, we can provide you with representation that effectively communicates the extent of your loss, physically, financially, and emotionally, and that passionately advocates for just compensation on your behalf.
