Are you seeking to hire a wrongful death attorney in Columbus, GA—someone who is on your side, competent, and hard working? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Our lawyers at Link & Smith, P.C. reached various settlements for clients who sought compensation for wrongful death cases. Once we confidently discuss the details of the case, we will help you determine whether or not the incident was a result of a wrongful act or negligence.
What constitutes a wrongful death case?
We handle cases that result in unjust death(s), which can be caused by another person, or by a business entity. Wrongful death is considered a personal injury case. However, with wrongful death, the victim (deceased person) is not filing the lawsuit; instead, his or her family or estate is doing so.
When hearing the term “wrongful death,” most people automatically think of deaths caused by auto accidents. However, unjust deaths can be caused by many different instances, such as deaths caused by:
- Skiing accidents, which include defective ski lifts
- Entertainment event accidents (football games, basketball games, concerts, and the like)
- Amusement park accidents
- Motorcycle and auto accidents
- Spectator accidents at races
- Spectator accidents at air shows
