Savannah, Georgia Wrongful Death Attorneys

After a Wrongful Death, the Right Representation Means Everything

We know that considering a wrongful death legal claim after the loss of a loved one is likely the furthest thing from your mind after tragedy.

However, the Savannah, Georgia judicial system does allow for family of the deceased to pursue justice in the form of financial compensation on behalf of their loved ones. It is key to remember that due to strict legal time deadlines, your right to pursue a wrongful death claim in Savannah is limited. We know you have more important things to deal with than legal time deadlines.

That’s why our compassionate attorneys handle all aspects of your case for you and ensure that your legal rights are protected so that you can concentrate on yourself and your family during this difficult time.

Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.
Attorney Jennifer Fleming and her Assistant, Joy Herrington were beyond amazing! They were both very professional and patient. As well, no gaps in communication (major plus for me) and my case received above my expectations. Thank you team for educating me through the process and all you did to help my case.
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.

What You Need to Know About Wrongful Death Actions & Survival Claims

We Work to Make Your Life Easier During This Difficult Time

Contact Montlick

If your loved one is the victim of accidental or intentional actions of an individual, business, public entity or other that results in fatal injuries, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death action. This will typically consist of two distinct legal claims. The two claims generally are brought together in a wrongful death action include a survival claim and a wrongful death claim.

What is a Survival Claim?

The action designated as a “survival claim” is essentially a recognition that an accident victim has rights to recovery even after their death. The purpose of the survival claim is to provide compensation to an injury victim that the victim would have been entitled to had he or she survived.

A survival action is brought by the personal representative of the estate. Damages that may be available in a survival action include pre-death pain and suffering (presuming death was not instantaneous), pre-death loss of enjoyment of life experience as well as pre-death economic loss including lost income and medical costs.

What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death claims are brought on behalf of the deceased’s family by the personal representative of the estate. A wrongful death claim is designed to compensate the family of a wrongful death accident victim for their personal loss resulting from the death of a loved one. Family members may seek compensation for both economic and non-economic loss. Economic losses that may be compensated include loss of financial support, inheritance, services and funeral/burial costs.

Family members may also seek compensation for non-economic loss including mental distress, loss of emotional support and guidance and loss of consortium (i.e. companionship and services).
