You Deserve Justice After The Wrongful Death Of A Loved One

Wrongful death cases are heart-wrenching. They involve a life tragically cut short by careless action (or inaction). They leave behind loved ones bereft with the loss who are often struggling to make sense of what happened and why. Often they are not given any meaningful explanation about the true causes of their loved one’s death.

If you are in that situation, you deserve to have a lawyer by your side to answer your questions and fight for justice. At Webb Law LLC, I am the advocate you can rely on. I’m attorney James H. Webb, Jr., and I handle all kinds of wrongful death cases, including those stemming from medical negligence.

Why Work With Me

For more than four decades, I been pursuing justice on behalf of surviving loved ones in wrongful death cases and have recovered millions of dollars for my clients. I understand what you’re going through after the untimely death of a loved one. I know that no amount of money can make up for your loss. A life can never be reclaimed. All the law can do is to monetarily compensate you for your loss.

My extensive experience gives me knowledge and insight into how to hold responsible parties accountable and get insurance companies to pay fair settlements. As a certified arbitrator and mediator, I am experienced in how to bring the other side to the negotiating table to get cases favorably resolved without the time and expense of going to trial. However, I am prepared to go to trial if necessary — and I have successfully tried many cases in my career.

Understanding Wrongful Death Claims In Georgia

Under Georgia law, only certain relatives of the deceased – their spouse, children, parents or representative of the estate – have legal standing to file a wrongful death claim. If you have questions about standing, I can answer them.

To prevail in a wrongful death claim, you must prove that the defendant (or defendants) contributed to your loved one’s death and that they are responsible under legal standards such as negligence or strict liability. Satisfying this burden of proof requires presenting strong and detailed evidence.

You must also prove the extent of your damages – that is, the financial impact of your loss. A successful damages claim will result in recovery for:
  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses resulting from your loved one’s injury
  • Pain and suffering experienced by your loved one before death
  • The monetary value of your loved one’s life
  • Punitive damages, in some cases, to punish the wrongdoers and deter others from engaging in similar behavior
As a double Board-certified specialist in pretrial and trial advocacy, I understand how to present strong cases for establishing both liability and damages.
