Helping Families After Fatal Accidents
Dealing with a loved one’s death is a painful process and is often made worse when the death occurred in a tragic accident or from an avoidable illness. While death is a natural part of life, losing a loved one due to the fault of another person is known as wrongful death. A wrongful death case results when a person is killed by an accident involving negligence, medical malpractice or intentional harm.
A wrongful death lawsuit can bring a measure of justice for the wrong done. It can also bring much-needed financial relief, especially if the victim was the primary wage earner in the family. At Overman & Overman LLC, our attorneys have a wealth of experience handling wrongful death claims for clients throughout Georgia and the greater Atlanta metro area.
Pursuing Financial Recovery For Your Losses
Our wrongful death lawyers will closely examine your situation and determine if you are eligible for a wrongful death case. If so, you are entitled to compensation for funeral and burial costs, loss of the deceased’s income and emotional grief. Family members who can file a wrongful death claim include spouses, children and parents of the deceased. If you have lost a member of your family due to the recklessness of another, we will fight for you.
We handle wrongful death claims caused by any type of serious accident, including car, truck and other motor vehicle accident claims. Our attorneys understand there is more to legal representation in cases like this than just the money. We will walk you through the entire legal process personally and handle your legal matter with compassion. However, when it comes to our approach to the other side, we will fight aggressively to maximize your recovery.
