Wrongful Death


There is perhaps nothing more devastating than the unexpected loss of a loved one. This loss is more overwhelming if your loved one’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence. A wrongful death claim can arise in many circumstances including car and truck wrecks, premises liability, and medical malpractice amongst others. Zach is committed to helping his clients in the wake of the unthinkable.

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.

With over 17 years of experience, Zach can help navigate you through the difficult process of investigating and pursuing a wrongful death claim. If you have a wrongful death claim, please reach out to Zach today for a free evaluation of the claim.

I was involved in an accident and Zach handled my case. Zach was honest and kept me up to date on everything. During this experience my husband passed away and I was so thankful to have Zach handling everything. He cared and was so supportive. When you are going thru situations like this you need someone you trust and gives his all to your case.

Mr. Zach Thomas represented me multiple times in business and personally. Not only was his professionalism unrivaled, he successfully handled multiple lawsuits successfully and not only met my expectation , but exceeded them exponentially. I highly recommend his services and having him represent you or your company.

I was involved in a head-on car collision in November 2019. Zach was referred to me by another attorney I have great trust in and respect for. He was everything I needed during such a trying time. I could tell that Zach honestly cared about what was happening to me and he was there every step of the way making sure I was taken care of.I believe he got me the best financial settlement possible and was fair and honest with his expenses.I would defiantly use Zach again and refer him to others, though I really hope I never have to.
