Augusta Georgia Wrongful Death Attorney
Nothing is more serious and overwhelming than the loss of a life cut short by the negligence of another whether it’s a trucking accident, motorcycle injury, medical malpractice, or because of a defective product. Georgia wrongful death lawsuits are serious cases requiring attorneys of the highest caliber to prosecute them. David Dekle spent over 20 years defending wrongful death actions and is now ready to help you pursue your rights for the loss of a loved one.
Georgia law entitles family members to recover for the death of a spouse, father, mother, or child when someone else is at fault. The measure of damages is the full value of the life of the decedent without deduction for expenses had he or she lived and is determined by the enlightened conscience of a fair and impartial jury who can take into account the decedent’s lost income, life expectancy, work life expectancy, and the intangibles that brought value to his or her life. The family is also entitled to recover funeral expenses and medical expenses on behalf of their loved one’s estate as well as conscious pain and suffering in some cases.
