Overview of Georgia Wrongful Death Claims

In Georgia, a wrongful death claim arises when another party’s negligent, reckless, or intentional actions cause an individual’s death. Wrongful death claims compensate the surviving family members or beneficiaries of the deceased for losing their loved one.

Below is a brief overview of when you might have a wrongful death claim in Georgia:

Negligence or Wrongful Act

Atlanta Wrongful Death Attorneys

To have a valid wrongful death claim in Georgia, you must establish that the death resulted from someone else’s negligence, wrongful act, or intentional wrongdoing. This can include any of the above accidents due to negligence or even criminal actions. Criminal cases are separate from wrongful death cases, so always consult our team even if the liable party faces criminal charges.

Eligible Family Members

Not everyone who loses someone they love can file a wrongful death case. Under Georgia law, only certain family members may seek compensation. These typically include the deceased’s surviving spouse, children, and parents. If none of these parties are alive or available, a personal representative of the deceased’s estate may bring the claim.

Timely Filing

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is generally two years from the individual’s death. Failing to file within this timeframe may result in losing your right to seek compensation. You usually must file an insurance claim before you file a lawsuit, so always give your attorney plenty of time to prepare and pursue your claim.


Damages you might seek in a wrongful death claim can include both economic and non-economic losses.

These may cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost financial support
  • Lost household services
  • Other tangible losses
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship experienced by surviving family members

Even though you know your family deserves justice, proving wrongful death claims can be challenging. Negligent parties and insurance companies might deny liability, perhaps even blaming your family member for their own death.
