Wrongful Death

Joshi & Patel represent families that have lost loved ones due to auto accidents, trucking accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, defective products and other causes. Holding a careless corporation financially responsible for a loved one’s death may not heal the emotional suffering, but monetary recovery can ease the unexpected economic burdens and provide some measure of justice for the innocent victims.

Under Georgia law, there are two types of death claims that may be pursued by the family of the deceased. The surviving family members have a claim pursuant Georgia’s wrongful death statute and there is a claim that can be pursued by the estate of the deceased. Wrongful death cases involve many complex issues and can depend on whether the deceased left a will, whether they were married, whether they had any children, the amount and nature of the medical expenses, whether the deceased suffered prior to death.If you believe your loved one was killed due to someone else’s negligence, you should hire an experienced wrongful death lawyer to investigate the case and walk you through the complicated issues that will likely arise. At Joshi & Patel, we thoroughly investigate wrongful death cases to seek answers to the unanswered questions and to maximize the recovery for our clients.
