Legal Guidance For Grieving Families
Losing a loved one can be devastating. When the death was caused by someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence, the grief is often combined with confusion, frustration and anger.
At George Bush Law, we help families get the compensation they need to move forward after the wrongful death of a loved one. Our founding attorney, George Bush, has represented individuals and families for over 25 years. You can work directly with him to resolve your wrongful death case. Attorney Bush is a proven negotiator and experienced trial lawyer who provides compassionate yet aggressive representation for grieving families.
How A Wrongful Death Claim Can Benefit Families
A wrongful death claim is justified when family members believe that their loss is due to another party’s negligence, recklessness or wrongdoing. For example, a fatal car crash may have been caused by a driver who was drunk or speeding, or a fatal work accident could happen after an employer negligently or recklessly puts workers in a dangerous situation. In such tragic cases, the family of the deceased may be owed significant compensation for various costs resulting from the death.
During this highly stressful time of grieving, families might hesitate to take legal action. However, we know that many families gain much-needed financial assistance and a sense of justice through wrongful death claims. Financial compensation can help families cope with the loss of household income, loss of parental care, and other significant damages.
Our firm treats these cases with the utmost care. We can handle the legal and insurance matters while you focus on your well-being and that of your family.
Eligibility For Wrongful Death Compensation
If you have lost your loved one and are considering a wrongful death lawsuit, the first step is to work with an experienced attorney to determine whether you are eligible for compensation.
For example, the child or spouse of a deceased person may sue for wrongful death, and parents may sue for the loss of their child. Alternatively, the representative of the estate can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased adult’s next of kin.
In Georgia, you must begin your case within two years of the loss. We can promptly assess your situation and start taking action on behalf of your family and your deceased loved one. Our founding attorney George Bush has extensive experience in these matters, and he is prepared to take your case to trial if the at-fault party and the insurance companies refuse to make things right.
