Wrongful Death

Atlanta, Georgia, Wrongful Death Attorneys

At the law firm of Toliver & Gainer , we understand the legal, financial, and emotional issues that families face when they have lost a family member in a deadly accident. Our lawyers have extensive experience representing family members in wrongful death cases involving medical malpractice, prescription drug side effects, fatal car accidents, truck accidents, and other types of accidental death.

If your family member has died due to the negligence of another party, give our attorneys the opportunity to meet you. Our consultations are without charge or obligation. From our office in Conyers, we represent the families of wrongful death victims in the Atlanta metro area and across Georgia. Please call (678) 374-1034.

Once you retain our law firm to represent you, the burden of dealing with legal liability, the probate court, insurance companies, newspaper and television reporters, funeral expenses, reimbursements, and other matters will be exclusively ours.

With more than 60 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys at Toliver & Gainer have the ability to pursue your wrongful death case and achieve the results that will protect your family's future. Our lawyers work with experts, such as economists to determine the present value of future lost wages and other types of compensation you are entitled to receive.

Our lawyers have obtained a number of record-breaking and precedent-setting results in catastrophic injury and accidental death cases. In a case involving a fatal crash, our lawyers set a precedent in Georgia that allows survivors to obtain compensation for the pain and suffering of their family member before their death. Prior to that case, defense attorneys argued that survivors could not file a claim for pre-death pain and suffering. The jury's verdict was affirmed by the Court of Appeals and became the law in Georgia.

Our lawyers will always give the insurance company of the negligent party an opportunity to settle your claim for a fair amount. If they enter into meaningful negotiation, we will actively pursue it. However, if the insurance company is not offering you full and fair compensation, we will not hesitate to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our fee will be a percentage of your verdict or settlement. If we are unable to obtain money for you, you owe us nothing.

The important decisions about your case will be made collectively. Our lawyers will always keep you apprised of the status of your case and return your phone calls promptly.
