Georgia Lawyers Find Justice for the Loss of Your Loved One

Dedicated Atlanta-area attorneys have recovered millions in wrongful death cases

If you have lost a loved one due to the wrongful acts of another, it may be difficult to even think of taking legal action, but you have the right to seek justice. An experienced attorney can help you overcome the financial burden of your loss through a wrongful death lawsuit. Serving the Atlanta area for a combined 45 years, the skilled attorneys at Adamson & Cleveland, LLC, in Norcross, have recovered millions of dollars for clients throughout Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties in wrongful death cases. We are dedicated to obtaining compensation that recognizes the value of your loved one’s life and helps you recover from your devastating loss.

Firm offers compassionate representation to those who have lost loved ones

When someone dies due to the wrongful conduct of another, the surviving family members may bring a wrongful death lawsuit for the monetary injuries they have suffered as a result of the death. Our attorneys have significant experience advocating for clients who have lost loved ones due to the negligent or reckless conduct of others. We have provided caring and compassionate representation to surviving family members in a wide range of wrongful death matters, including those involving:

  • Auto accidents — Driving can be a dangerous activity, especially when sharing the road with a drunk, distracted or reckless driver. While a wrongful death lawsuit will not bring your loved one back, it can help ease the financial burden of the untimely loss of life.
  • Medical malpractice — Claims of malpractice against healthcare providers or hospitals generally are some of the most difficult wrongful death cases to win, making it critical to have the counsel of an experienced wrongful death attorney. When a patient dies due to medical error, we work with qualified medical experts to determine whether the appropriate standard of care was followed.
  • Workplace accidents — When a workplace accident results in a fatality, the deceased worker’s spouse, children and other dependents are eligible for death benefits under Georgia workers’ compensation law. In some cases, the family also may recover from a third party other than the employer if that person’s reckless conduct contributed to the death.
  • Defective household products — If death results from a defective household product, we conduct a thorough investigation for evidence of flaws in the design or manufacture of the product or failure to warn of known risks that would give rise to a wrongful death claim.
  • Birth injuries — Medical providers must provide adequate care to pregnant mothers and unborn children through the pregnancy and delivery. If medical negligence results in the death of the child or mother, the family may pursue a wrongful death claim.

These are just a few examples of the types of wrongful death actions we handle. If you have lost a loved one due to the wrongful acts of another, no matter the circumstances, we are committed to helping you find justice. And as difficult as it may be to initiate a lawsuit while you’re in mourning, it’s important to know that in Georgia, your suit must be filed within two years of your loved one’s death.

Accomplished Georgia attorneys help ease the financial burden of your loss

In a wrongful death action, the damages that may be awarded include compensation for the financial injuries suffered by the deceased’s spouse, children and other dependents as a result of the death. Under Georgia law, these damages include lost future earnings and the economic value of the lost support and services that the family had received from the deceased, as well as medical and funeral expenses. While no amount of money can ever replace your loved one, we will do everything in our power to obtain fair and just compensation that will ease the financial burden of your loss and bring you peace of mind.
