Wrongful Death Lawyers Macon Trusts

Justice For Your Loved One

The unexpected death of a loved one is always tragic–and the trauma and grief only increase when the accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence.

The unfortunate truth is that many fatal accidents are preventable. If someone in your family was killed in an auto accident, or by workplace negligence, aggression, or other actions by a third party, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. While of course nothing can truly compensate you for the loss of your loved one, a wrongful death settlement can help to ease the financial burden of your loss and hold the responsible parties accountable. 

Pursuing a legal claim is probably the furthest thing from your mind right now as you grieve your loved one. That’s why Montlick is here. Our compassionate attorneys handle all aspects of your case for you and ensure that your legal rights are protected, so you can concentrate on yourself and your family during this difficult time.

I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.
Paula Molano was my attorney and I must say she did an amazing job with my case. She kept me informed on everything and any questions I had she answered. Very amazing attorney shes the best in my eyes. Thanks for everything
My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.

Generally, wrongful deaths can be divided into two broad categories:

Negligent Conduct: Normally, Georgia wrongful death law defines wrongful death in such cases as a fatality caused by the failure of an individual to exercise reasonable care. There are many types of unsafe behavior that can create hazards and cause accidents, such as car and truck accidents including distracted or reckless driving, construction accidents, negligence by healthcare providers,  slips trips and falls, accidents involving defective products, and more.

Intentional Misconduct: These cases typically involve criminal activity, such as murder, vehicular manslaughter, elder abuse and similar types of criminal acts that cause a fatality. When a wrongful death is the result of a criminal offense, the responsible party typically will face a criminal prosecution, but the civil process (what we do) provides an avenue for obtaining financial compensation for the victim’s family.

Who can bring a wrongful death claim?

Georgia wrongful death claims generally will be brought by a surviving spouse, or if there is no surviving spouse, the action may be brought by a surviving child. Even if a spouse brings the action, the proceeds of the wrongful death lawsuit also must be shared with children of the decedent (O.C.G.A. §51-4-2).

The percentages distributed between a surviving spouse and the children of the decedent depends on the number of children so you should ask an experienced Macon wrongful death attorney about the appropriate distribution in your case.

Finally, if there is neither spouse nor children of the deceased, the right to compensation goes to the decedent’s surviving parents and, if there are no living parents, then to the decedent’s estate.

Under Georgia wrongful death law, there are three general categories of damages that can be available in a legal action involving a fatal injury:

  • Medical, funeral and other necessary expenses stemming from the injury or death of the decedent (O.C.G.A. §51-4-5(b))
  • Full value of life of the decedent (O.C.G.A. §§51-4-2(a), 19-7-1(c)(1)).
  • Pain and suffering, medical bills and other damage arising between the time of injury and death (§9-2-41) (This portion of the wrongful death case is referred to as a “survival action.”).
