Death comes in various forms. Wrongful death is the result of someone else’s actions.
“When someone has lost a loved one due to the actions of another, they often don’t know what they are supposed to do. It’s enough of a shock just dealing with the loss of the person in the first place. In all instances where someone has lost their life due to the negligence on another, it’s wise to talk to an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney and get solid legal advice on how to obtain compensation for that person’s death,” said Stephen M. Ozcomert, who handles personal injury cases, accidents, and malpractice law in Atlanta, Georgia.
Who brings a wrongful death action to court? In the vast majority of the cases, the immediate family of the deceased brings the action. However, in some cases, an executor will bring the action to recover compensation for the death.
