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.

Incredible service! Mr. Ellis Lui went over and beyond what I expected with a trying DUI case. Thank You again!
Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm.

I highly recommend Ellis C. Liu! Thank you Montlick & Associates for everything!

We Know What It Takes to Win® Wrongful Death Cases

According to CNBC and John Hopkins University, over 250,000 people die from medical errors every year in the United States, making it the third leading cause of death. Other common causes of accidental or wrongful deaths include:

  • Car accidents
  • Trucking and bus accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Building fires
  • Workplace accidents
  • Slips/trips and falls
  • Defective consumer products
  • Contaminated food
  • Defective medical devices
  • Dangerous/contaminated prescription drugs

The presence of negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct by an individual or company is most commonly the cause of wrongful deaths.

Accidental/wrongful death compensation

The rights of plaintiffs to pursue wrongful death claims are subject to the law of the state they occur in, and the types of damages recovered can significantly. Compensation that may be available includes:

  • Full economic and non-economic value of the life of the victim
  • Loss of companionship
  • Value of support and services
  • Punitive damages
  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased

Lawsuits associated with wrongful death, because of their enormous value, require thorough investigation. At Montlick we have extensive experience pursuing wrongful death cases from start to finish, and we know what it takes to secure the compensation grieving families need.

The clock begins ticking on the statutes of limitations in wrongful death cases on the date of the incident that caused the victim’s death, but the amount of time a person has to file the claim varies significantly depending on the relevant state laws.

We advise clients to take action as soon as possible as some states have shorter statutes of limitations than others. In auto accident cases, insurance policies owned by the victim or the victim’s family often also have timely notification requirements. This means if a claim is not filed in the time given in the insurance policy, the family of the deceased may lose valuable compensation.

Important evidence necessary for a case can disappear or become destroyed, and witnesses can go missing or forget what happened as more time passes as well, increasing the importance of acting quickly.

FAQs Accidental Wrongful Death

What Are Georgia Deadlines for Filing Car Accident Insurance Claims & Lawsuits?
For personal injury claims resulting from a car accident, the statute of limitations in Georgia is usually two years from the date of the accident. This means you would have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible party/parties. Failure to file within this time frame could result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries. The statutes of limitations can vary depending on the jurisdiction of the accident.
