Supporting You In Your Family’s Time Of Need

We understand the emotional toll a death can take on a family as well as the financial challenges it can create. As we evaluate your wrongful death eligibility, we will also investigate the fatal accident to prove who is liable to compensate you. We help clients in Lowndes County and throughout Georgia pursue the maximum available compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship

We know that no amount of money can ever make up for the death of your loved one. With this in mind, it is our goal to help our clients obtain the compensation they need to move forward to a place of financial strength once again. For many families, a successful wrongful death claim also provides closure after an unimaginable loss.

Act Quickly After A Fatal Accident To Preserve Evidence

While it may not seem ideal at this painful time, it is important to contact a lawyer immediately after a fatal accident. The sooner we can get started gathering evidence for your claim, the better our chances will be of building a strong case to prove that a wrongful death occurred.

We know that the time right after the sudden death of a family member is a difficult time for you. For this reason, we strive to make our clients feel comfortable throughout the legal process. We listen and educate our clients to help them make the right decisions about taking cases to trial. We will always keep you informed of your options.
