Question:

Who can file a wrongful death claim?

Answer:

People often ask, too, about who can actually file a wrongful death claim. In Georgia, there are laws that establish who is allowed to bring the claim when someone has died as the result of the negligence of others. Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim? One type of claim is what we refer to as a survivor claim; for example, if someone is married, the spouse is the one who can bring that claim. If someone dies and they weren’t married at the time of the death and they don’t have any children but their parents are alive, then the parents have the claim. If someone dies and they don’t have parents who are living, they weren’t married, they don’t have children, then the claim may pass to their siblings. It can get complicated, but is all established by law in Georgia. If you have any questions, please call us.
