Filing a wrongful death lawsuit after fatal accident

If something doesn’t feel right about the way in which a loved one left this world, it might be time to start asking questions. A wrongful death lawsuit asks those questions and seeks to answer them as well. How could loved ones benefit from a wrongful death lawsuit? Wrongful death lawsuits are aimed at filling the financial gaps that happen for loved ones when a person unexpectedly passes away due to a fatal accident in which another person or party is responsible for their well-being, and thus negligent for their actions or inaction that occurred in the event.

Wrongful death lawsuits could happen due to a truck accident when a driver loses control of their rig. Or, perhaps medical care wasn’t up to the standard of care it should be, and it caused a fatal medical injury or incident. Airplanes crashes and defective products could even be to blame for a person’s unexpected and tragic death. While there really is no limit to where a wrongful death lawsuit could exist, and this is terrifying, understand that loved ones can put responsibility on those behind the fatal accident and negligence that led to a loved one’s death.

In an ideal world, no families in Atlanta would ever feel the pain that comes with losing a loved one in a fatal accident. However, until then, wrongful death lawsuits exist to help right that wrong. It won’t bring the loved one back or change a person’s harsh reality without their loved one, but responsibility is to be put on the negligent party and financial support to be paid in the amount of damages in a successful wrongful death lawsuit.

Holding Wrongdoers Responsible

Malone Law is known for its willingness to take cases to trial when defendants refuse to accept responsibility for their actions — particularly in situations where death or devastating injuries have been caused by careless commercial trucking companies, sloppy health care and manufacturers of defective products. Tommy secured one of the first verdicts over a million dollars in Georgia history — a $1.2 million verdict in a 1982 jury trial against a trucking company involving the needless death of a 7-year-old girl. Throughout his career, Tommy continued achieving record verdicts, including a recent verdict of over $49 million against two careless trucking companies for causing a severe brain injury to a pre-med college student.

Likewise, Adam has continued this tradition and has broken his father's record verdict in their hometown of Albany with a $24.5 million verdict in a medical negligence case for a 14-year-old football player.
