Carrollton Wrongful Death Lawyer

When a loved one dies, it is always painful. When the death is caused by negligence, it is against the law.

Wrongful death is defined as a person and/or company acting recklessly, negligently and with a disregard for the safety of others or with the intent to kill or harm, and someone dies as a result of those actions.

Drunk driving accidents, drug side effects, medical malpractice, accidents on the job, plane crashes and product defects claim the most wrongful death victims, but each case is unique and should be evaluated by a competent, compassionate lawyer.

Compassionate, Yet Aggressive, Wrongful Death Representation

At no cost to you, Carrollton wrongful death attorney Robert Duffee will listen to your concerns regarding the loss you have suffered and counsel you regarding important next steps. If you choose to go forward, your case will be in good hands because he has extensive experience interpreting medical records, interviewing witnesses and visiting accident scenes to gather essential evidence necessary to win a wrongful death case involving:

  • Tractor-trailer, truck, car and motorcycle wrecks: Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of wrongful death. In Georgia, fatal accidents occur more frequently at night, on rural roads. The Georgia Department of Transportation attributes this to poor lighting and little or no shoulder in some areas, many intersections and traffic signs that can be hidden by trees, shrubs or kudzu.
  • Medical malpractice: The key to these cases is proving that the professional negligence of health care providers is an act, or omission of an act, that resulted in serious injury or death. Duffee Law Firm has extensive experience scrutinizing medical records and evidence for the key details that are crucial to developing a successful legal strategy.
  • Product liability: This law holds manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers responsible for defective products. There are different types of product liabilities, and each case is unique so it is important that you contact a knowledgeable lawyer to discuss the specifics of your situation.
  • Workplace accidents: If an employee is killed on the job, a claim could be filed against the employer, and/or a third-party tortfeasor. Even cases involving part-time employment could be valid. We will evaluate the circumstances at no cost and explain possible options.
  • Airplane accidents: If a loved one was killed in a plane crash that occurred due to an intoxicated pilot or equipment malfunction, please consult an attorney immediately. Time is of the essence, and fast action is needed so witnesses do not forget key facts that may be central to a wrongful death case.
