Georgia Personal Injury Trial Attorneys

Wrongful Death

Fry | Goehring successfully helps the injured recover the compensation they deserve.

Settlement over twenty times the prior offer
We filed a law-suit, and shortly thereafter we obtained a settlement over twenty times the prior offer.
A driver that was illegally taking opioids
Our Firm helped a gentleman that was hit by a driver that was illegally taking opioids, which affected his driving. This caused serious injuries to our client. We had multiple depositions, worked with a toxicologist and other experts, and were ultimately able to obtain a very large, and confidential settlement, for our very deserving client.
Five times the initial offer
We received a referral case from another attorney. It was a hit and run case with a low offer, which is common for these types of cases. After our firm filed suit, we were able to take the case to mediation and settled for 5 times the initial offer.
Five times the initial offer
Following mediation, the insurance company ended up agreeing to pay 2.5 times the amount of its prior statutory offer of settlement to resolve the case and avoid a jury trial.
Recently settled at mediation for a confidential, but significant amount
We represented a very nice Hispanic lady that was severely injured when a thermos she was carrying blew up causing her eye damage. We spent significant time and resources on this case, and working with another Firm, recently settled at mediation for a confidential, but significant amount. Our client and her family were thrilled that we took the time, and the risk, to assist in this very serious matter.
Settlement over six times the previous offer
We recently represented a man that was bitten by a dog, that was not on a leash and not restrained as required by the applicable laws and ordinances. The initial offer to this gentleman did not even cover his medical bills. Our firm took over his case, and we secured a settlement of over six times the previous offer. We were happy to secure a great settlement for one of many dog bites cases that we handle every year.

Atlanta Wrongful Death Attorneys


Wrongful death is a civil action brought in court to recover monetary damages for the death of a family member due to the negligent or reckless conduct of another person. While we understand there is no way to truly recover from the emotional loss of a loved one, filing a lawsuit for wrongful death gives relatives or beneficiaries the right to bring an action against the person, group, or institution responsible for that individual’s death, bringing some retribution for the injustice they suffered.

The laws are different in each state; however, wrongful death suits offer the provision of financial support and benefits to the victim’s family members, particularly their spouse and children. Our compassionate lawyers know that in the midst of excruciating personal loss, having to pay exorbitant costs for funeral bills, hospital debts, and other fees associated with your loved one’s death are too much to handle on your own.

How Wrongful Death Works in the State of Georgia

If your loved one has passed away due to someone else’s irresponsibility, our first step is establishing that the individual or group of people involved clearly demonstrated negligence in their actions. For example, doctors are supposed to provide an appropriate level of care to their patients. If the doctor — or even a whole group of medical practitioners — breached this duty and did not reasonably take action to prevent harm from occurring to your loved one, or failed to provide standard tests and practices, they could be liable for the death.

In addition to showing that such negligence occurred, our attorneys must then prove not only that your loved one’s death was directly caused by others’ lack of care, but also that you and your other surviving family members suffered tremendously on account of the tragedy.

Wrongful Death Damages in Atlanta

When you are demonstrating that you and your family have endured tremendous emotional and financial pain following a wrongful death, there are a number of elements for which you can seek compensation, ranging from expenses for funeral services to medical bills. In certain cases, even punitive damages are allowed, which serve as punishment if the perpetrator has behaved in an especially egregious manner.

Some examples of the different kinds of damages you can claim include:

  • Physical, mental, and emotional pain endured by the deceased prior to their early death
  • The suffering endured by you and surviving families from losing your loved one
  • The loss of wages that the deceased would have contributed to the family
  • Fees for childcare now that the deceased can no longer provide this support
  • Loss of retirement benefits and rewards

Taking Proactive Steps Following Your Loved One’s Wrongful Death

The laws of each state have statutes which give certain family members a designated time to file a claim or bring an action against the individuals or entities responsible for wrongful death. Prudent and timely investigation are crucial as soon as possible after such a tragic event. Do not hesitate to get in touch with our Atlanta wrongful death attorneys so we can begin establishing your case.
