Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit?

In Georgia, only certain individuals are entitled to recover from the loss of a loved one. When the deceased is an adult, the surviving spouse generally is first in line to bring a wrongful death claim. The spouse must share any recovery for the claim equally any surviving children of the deceased. If there is no surviving spouse, then the surviving children of the deceased may bring the action.

If there is neither a surviving spouse or surviving children, the surviving parents of the deceased may pursue the claim. Absent a surviving spouse, surviving children, or surviving parents, the administrator of the decedent’s estate can bring the claim on behalf of the estate.
