No strings attached

Do I have a personal injury case, a wrongful death case, or both?

A personal injury case is controlled by the decedent’s estate and covers the medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering from the time of injury until the decedent’s death. 

A wrongful death case is controlled by the person identified by the wrongful death statute (most often the surviving spouse or children) and controls the full value of the life of the decedent. 

Deciding whether to pursue a personal injury claim, wrongful death claim, or both is a complex and fact-dependent scenario that you should talk through with an experienced Georgia injury attorney before making the decision on which claims to pursue.
