When is a Wrongful Death Suit Applicable?

When you lose a loved one to an accident or neglectful situation, life can become overwhelming, particularly if that person is a parent or caregiver. Suddenly, children, a spouse, a family and a business can lose a beloved leader or provider to wrongful death. Compensation through the civil courts can help ease some of the collateral damage.

What is Wrongful Death?

Simply put, wrongful death is defined as when someone causes the death of another person. The death can result from the action or the failure to act by the person charged with the death. Wrongful death is a civil charge and can possibly bring a financial settlement for those who are unduly affected by the death.

To successfully argue a wrongful death case, it must be shown that the person charged was responsible, either through action or neglect, causing the death. It also must be proven that the death would not have occurred without that action or neglect.

Why You Need an Experienced Wrongful Death Attorney?

When wrongful death is alleged, the damages or cash settlement is based on several factors. These deciding factors depend on lost wages, including lifetime probable earnings, the emotional loss to the spouse and children, the stress induced upon the family by the loss and more. The areas of loss are wide and many, so you need an attorney who knows how to calculate and defend these losses.

Another factor of wrongful death compensation includes punitive damages. Punitive damages assess a punishment against the responsible party for their actions that brought about the death.
An experienced wrongful death attorney knows from experience and training how a family can and will suffer from the loss of one of its members. They know that medical bills, college and daily living expenses add up fast and need to be prepared for, so the future isn’t unfairly jeopardized.

An experienced wrongful death attorney will help guide you through this immensely painful and complicated time with a strong ally for you to lean on.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
