Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!Jeannette A., Client
I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.Shirley H., Client

Many of the car accident cases that we handle involve people who are seriously injured but will go on to live full lives. Unfortunately, some car accidents result in death. Fatal car accident cases are complex, and you need an experienced team of Atlanta automobile accident lawyers to fight for your rights.
When someone dies in a fatal car accident, it typically gives rise to what is referred to as a “wrongful death” lawsuit. In these cases, you, as the plaintiff, are seeking compensation related to the death of a loved one that was caused by the other driver’s negligence. Wrongful death claims have much in common with personal injury lawsuits but also have some important differences.
In some accidents, the victim dies at the scene, but it is also common for car accident victims to die sometime later after they have succumbed to their injuries. This is an important distinction because Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations that applies as follows:
If the victim is expected to die in the following months, waiting to file suit could jeopardize a potential personal injury claim. In either event, we recommend that you pursue a claim as soon as possible. Our Atlanta automobile accident lawyers can help you plan an effective strategy for getting the compensation you deserve.
If you have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, it’s important to understand that only certain people can pursue a wrongful death claim. Generally speaking, only those who are “next of kin” are entitled to seek compensation for the loss of their loved ones:
If the victim has had more than one spouse and a blended family, the situation can become more complicated. Our Atlanta automobile accident lawyers have experience handling wrongful death claims and can help you navigate these issues.
Tragically, fatal car accidents often involve the death of a child. These cases require special consideration, as Georgia law also limits who can pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of the child:
The case becomes even more complex if one or both parents died in the accident along with the child. Again, an experienced Atlanta automobile accident lawyer will know how to pursue the claim while avoiding the pitfalls.
Losing a loved one in a fatal car accident is an unspeakable tragedy for you and your family. Our Atlanta automobile accident lawyers know how important it is to get fair compensation – your future depends on it. To discuss your case and how we can help,
