I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing.

Fatal Car Accidents in Georgia
Finding out that a close friend or family member has passed away from serious injuries sustained in a car accident is everyone’s worst nightmare. After a loved one dies in a car accident, a family might suffer both financial and emotional harm.
A person who is injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence has the legal right to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation from the driver who caused the accident. They are entitled to reimbursement for any expenses incurred directly as a result of the accident.
However, if an accident victim passes away as a direct result of their injuries, their surviving family members are entitled to sue the at-fault driver for wrongful death. The family of the deceased person will be able to pursue justice for their loved one’s passing.
A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by the family to seek financial compensation for funeral expenses and emotional distress caused by their loved one’s untimely death.
When another person’s negligence kills a member of your family, the last thing on your mind is probably settling an insurance claim or filing a wrongful death claim. However, it is critical to remember that the statute of limitations limits the amount of time you have to file a wrongful death claim.
If you hire a Wrongful Death Lawyer to represent you in your claim, they will make certain that you receive compensation for the following:
