Georgia Wrongful Death Lawyer

With over 30 years of experience, Georgia wrongful death lawyers at Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A. have recovered millions of dollars for family members whose loved ones perished as a result of negligence.

Wrongful death occurs when an unnatural or untimely death occurs due to the wrongful act of another. Even if a defendant is determined not to be guilty of criminal charges, they may be civilly liable for damages. Surviving family members of the deceased who have suffered irreparable harm due to the death of their loved one are eligible to file a wrongful death claim. The deceased spouse, children or parents can have standing under Georgia law to bring wrongful death claims, as does the estate of a decedent who has no surviving kin.

Many circumstances can require a Georgia wrongful death lawyer, including deaths resulting from:

  • Drunk driving
  • Vehicle accidents (car, truck, bus, etc.)
  • Boat or train accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligent or reckless conduct
  • Elder abuse
  • Defective products
  • Unsafe prescription medicine
  • Contaminated food
  • Construction and property site dangers
