One of the cruel realities in dealing with the death of a loved one is that you have to deal with significant financial burdens on top of emotional ones you’re already bearing. Funeral expenses are among the most prominent of these expenses.
Our Atlanta wrongful death lawyers have been practicing for decades. We know how staggering these expenses can be, especially when you’re reeling from the unexpected loss of a loved one.
When this loss was the result of someone else’s negligence or misconduct, the law provides you with a way to more easily handle these expenses. Under Georgia’s wrongful death law, you can pursue compensation for funeral expenses through a personal injury suit.
Funeral expenses are not the only expenses you can ask to be compensated for- a wrongful death suit can also cover medical bills, for example. But many people are unaware that funeral expenses can be covered by a legal claim.
The exact amount of money you can receive to compensate you for funeral expenses is, of course, dependent on the specific circumstances of your case, and no wrongful death lawyer can promise you a specific verdict or monetary settlement. Our lawyers will discuss the possibilities with you at a free initial consultation.
