Wrongful Death Archives

Interstate highways often scenes of fatal accidents

Losing a loved one is never easy but it seems even harder to accept when the loss is due to the negligence of another person. Fatal accidents are often caused by someone who is not giving sufficient attention to the task at hand, usually in operating some type of machine that is capable of causing grave injury, such as a car or truck. A Georgia man was recently a victim in one of the state's latest fatal accidents as he was traveling on Interstate 20.

Fatal accidents caused by negligent driving

Deadly crashes can happen at any time and to any person, no matter what precautions a driver may take. There is no guarantee that other drivers are as careful on the road, that weather conditions are always perfect for driving, and that deer and that other animals do not dart out in front of a moving vehicle. A Georgia man has been sentenced after his conviction in causing one of the state's fatal accidents nearly two years ago.

Georgia Power accused of negligence in wrongful death suit

The treatments for cancer or other serious illnesses can be harsh on a patient's body and can be difficult to recover from. Sometimes, these treatments can even cause permanent damage. Depending on the illness and the treatment, patients may be permanently reliant on things like oxygen tanks or other healthcare equipment. When this equipment is compromised, the results may be deadly, as was the case for a Georgia woman whose power was turned off despite her efforts and the efforts of her family and her doctors to keep the power on. After her death, a wrongful death suit was filed against Georgia Power, claiming negligence. 

Family files wrongful death suit after child dies at day camp

Summer is fast approaching, and some Georgia residents are dreading the heat, while others are looking forward to it. Many parents and children are getting ready for various camps and activities that will begin with at the end of the school year. While most of the time these camps and activities are a source of fond memories, occasionally they are plagued by tragic events.The parents of a 5-year-old boy filed a wrongful death suit after their son died while under the care of camp counselors in July, 2017.

Fatal accidents in popular locations

It is widely believed that there are few things more tragic than the death of a child. Many residents of Georgia might have heard about a recent accident that resulted in the death of a small child. Fatal accidents that occur in public places, like shopping centers, can sometimes have a long-lasting effect on the memories of those who were involved in some way or on those who learned about it later. 

Mother of stuntman files wrongful death suit

Action packed television shows are among the most popular today. The audience members sit on the edge of their seats as they watch their favorite characters stand up to villains or fend off zombies. However, many viewers may not think about how these amazing shows are made. Actors put hours of work into creating the characters that audiences come to love, and their stuntmen put their bodies on the line to bring the action sequences to life. Even with the safety precautions taken by the production, a stuntman was killed while filming the show "The Walking Dead" in Georgia, and his mother has since filed a wrongful death suit. 

Robbery may result in wrongful death suit

Most of our time is split between home and work. In fact, there are many people who seem to spend so much time at work that it begins to feel like a second home; they become comfortable there or feel as though they should be. There are times when employees become concerned with certain procedures or security measures, which they can communicate to their employers, and it is up to the employers to listen to these concerns and take appropriate measures. A restaurant employee in Georgia voiced her concerns about the establishment's security, but her concerns went unheeded and she was killed during a robbery. Her family may now be considering filing a wrongful death suit against their daughter's former employer. 

Family awarded millions in wrongful death suit

Thankfully, most Georgia car accidents don't involve fires. When they do, it's usually because big rigs or other large vehicles were involved. In 2012, a collision between an SUV and a pickup truck resulted in a horrific blaze that killed a young boy. His family subsequently filed a wrongful death suit against Chrysler, the manufacturer of their vehicle.
