If You Hate The Fact That You Need An Attorney, I Understand
If you’re reading this page about wrongful death, I can imagine that your stomach is in a knot, you feel sick and this is the last thing you want to be doing. I’m Brunswick attorney Brad McLelland, and I understand what you’re going through. The loss of a loved one is always hard. It’s 10 times more challenging when that death was caused by someone else’s neglect or wrongdoing. I’m here to help — either right now, or in a few weeks when you’re feeling up to it.
I have handled numerous wrongful death cases for Georgia families like yours. You can count on me to provide the personal, empathetic and responsive service you need during this extremely difficult time. Following is some of the basic information you want to know as you sort through your options:
It’s Important To Preserve The Evidence
No matter the cause of death — whether it was due to a car accident, construction accident or any other type of negligence — it’s very important to preserve all available evidence. You are almost certainly not in a position to do this right now, but I am. Let me start gathering and preserving the evidence as soon as possible.
Help With Funeral Arrangements And Other Details
In addition to exploring your legal options, it’s likely that you’re also stressed out trying to make funeral arrangements and deal with estate matters. As your lawyer, I can also assist you with these issues or direct you to someone else who can help. Not having to worry about all these obligations can take a weight off your mind.
Understanding How Compensation Is Calculated
In the state of Georgia, wrongful death cases can be very complex. The amount of compensation for fatalities is determined based on the “full value of the life” of the deceased individual. In addition, families are able to recover compensation for any conscious pain and suffering, medical expenses, funeral costs and related expenses of the deceased.
In a way, Georgia law may seem quite callous. After all, no amount of money can possibly replace the loss of your loved one. However, a successful wrongful death claim may give you some sense of justice and the financial resources your family needs to continue making ends meet.
