Experienced Trial Attorneys Fighting for the Injured
Wrongful Death

Savannah Wrongful Death Lawyers

You & Your Family Are Not Alone During this Difficult Time

The death of a family member is always tragic, but when the death is due to another person’s negligence or intentional misconduct, the emotional cost seems even greater. In these situations, the laws of Georgia provide the victim’s family with some recourse for their terrible loss.

With regard to respect for the value of human life, Georgia’s wrongful death statute is one of the best in the United States. In Georgia, the measure of damages for wrongful death is the full value of the life of the deceased. The damages include those that are tangible (e.g., projected lifetime income, with no deduction for living expenses or income taxes, value of services, etc.) and intangible, such as the enjoyment of the experience of living. Georgia does not impose a statutory formula or arbitrary limit on the damages awarded in a wrongful death case.

The wrongful death attorneys of Tate Law Group, LLC are here for you and your family. We fight aggressively on behalf of loved ones who were lost to an accident. Call (912) 333-3915 for a free consultation.

Conflicting Emotions During the Legal Process

When a family makes the decision to proceed with a monetary claim for the death of a loved one, ambivalent feelings are often intensely felt. No sum of money can bring back their loved one and sometimes the family has feelings of guilt, perhaps because they feel like they are putting a price on a person’s life. Unfortunately, a monetary award is the only way civil law can recognize the value of the victim’s life, compensate for the death and subsequent losses, and penalize the party or parties at fault. We understand your mixed feelings, and will always do our best to get justice for your loss in the eyes of the law.

Recovery for Your Financial Survival

Monetary compensation can help you to survive financially. In many cases, the deceased was depended on for financial needs as well as emotional ones. That makes the reality of living without them that much harder for the family members. In addition to losing a beloved member of their household, they now have to struggle to cover hospital bills, funeral costs, and their own living expenses on a smaller income.

Generally, the following items may be recoverable in a wrongful death suit:

  • Medical and hospital expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of future earnings and benefits
  • Loss of love, care, and companionship

At Tate Law Group, LLC, we understand that this is one of the most difficult times a family can face. We are here to help in any way we can, and our goal is to make this legal process as easy as possible for you. We want no more pain to fall on the family members who come to us for counsel. No matter how difficult the road before you may be, know that we are here beside you every step of the way.
