Negligent Death Lawyer in Tifton & Douglas
Wrongful death is governed by a state statute with a strict order as to who can bring a claim. Initially the surviving spouse holds the claim with provisions to share the awards with surviving children. In the event there is no spouse, the children would hold the claim. In cases where neither exists, the wrongful death claim would pass to the deceased’s parents, then to the administrator of the estate. At Dove Law, we provide personalized attention for residents of Douglas, Nashville, Fitzgerald, Hazlehurst, Tifton, Ashburn, Adel, Abbeville, Sylvester, McRae, Moultrie, Ocilla and Cordele, and will be there for you during the entire process.
