Wrongful Death

    For personal injury cases the initial consultation is free! It is a tragedy to lose a loved one through the negligent and wrongful acts of another.  Our firm is here to help you and your family deal with the legal issues involved when death occurs through the wrongful acts of another.  Although no life or death can be easily defined by financial value, if you lose a precious family member, you may be entitled to recover for the lost income, support and love and companionship the person provided to you and the family.

    A "wrongful death" occurs when a person is killed due to the wrongful act, neglect or fault of another individual, company or entity. An action for wrongful death belongs to the decedent's immediate family members or estate depending upon the circumstances. The law firm of Weiner, Yancey, Dempsey & Diggs, LLP has handled many wrongful death claims on behalf of metropolitan Atlanta and Georgia clients throughout the entire state of Georgia under the Georgia wrongful death act.

    A wrongful death claim may arise out of a number of situations, such as:

  1. 1.Construction accident

  2. 2.Defective products

  3. 3.Nursing home abuse or neglect

  4. 4.Medical malpractice

  5. 5.Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Boat, or Airplane accident

  6. 6.Accident resulting in death through electrocution

  7. 7.Excessive use of force by police officer

  8. 8.Failure of police to provide necessary medical care
