WRONGFUL DEATH ATTORNEY IN SAVANNAH GA
When a wrongful death occurs, Georgia law establishes who is the property party to bring a legal action. For example, if the deceased was married at the time, the surviving spouse is entitled to bring the wrongful death claim. If the deceased was not married at the time, a surviving child can bring the wrongful death claim. If the deceased was not married and did not have surviving children, an Estate must be created with the appropriate Probate Court and the Representative of the Estate can bring the wrongful death claim. Georgia law also establishes the specific way that damages for a wrongful death are divided in the event of a recovery.
