Who Can Bring a Lawsuit in a Fatal Car Accident in Atlanta, Georgia?
Generally speaking, the laws are similar to those of inheritance. For example, if a child were to die from an auto accident, then the parents would be able to file the claim. If the parents are divorced, they can still file a wrongful death claim. If one spouse dies and leaves no children, then the other spouse can file. For more information, speak privately with Attorney Joseph P. McClelland at 770-775-0938.
Are There Time Limits After a Deadly Car Accident?
Yes, and the are all different. Most of the difference involve the party you are filing suit against. For example, if you were bringing suit a against Atlanta, then we would have six months to take all of the correct actions, while it is one year for a county. A normal person or business will usually have a two year time limit on fatal car accident cases in Georgia.
It is extremely important to hire an attorney who understands the differences and can keep you from making huge, costly mistakes in your wrongful death case. How would you feel if you let the clock run out on a death claim. That would be one of the most costly mistakes you could make. An attorney will make sure that does not happen.
Don’t make mistakes after a loved one has been killed in a car accident in Atlanta, Georgia.
