Georgia wrongful death verdict is unprecedentedly large

One of the only sure things in life is that it will come to an end. People work hard to make the right choices in life, and that generally includes making the preparation for family when we feel the time may come. But negligence and other reasons can lead others to end lives before their times.

Nothing can replace a life in the eyes of loved ones and others who count on people and include them in their lives. One of the only comforts that can be provided in Georgia and other states is financial damages in a wrongful death lawsuit resolved in civil court, either through settlement or an order by a jury or judge.

A jury in Muscogee County awarded $280 million to the relatives of a 58-year-old woman from Louisiana who was killed in a truck accident along with four members of her family. Observers in the trucking industry believe it is one of the largest jury verdicts for wrongful death that the trade has ever seen.

The accident in question occurred on Interstate 80, where a sport utility vehicle carrying the five victims was hit head-on by a truck owned by a Columbus steel company in 2016. The jury found that the company exercised negligence that led to the deaths.

The survivors of people who lost their lives in wrongful death incidents also have the right to claim damages that can make the difficult transition a little easier. An attorney can make this process easier by focusing on the evidence in a specific case and advising plaintiffs accordingly.
