Our Law Firm Is Ready To Manage All of Your Legal Matters
A wrongful death case requires proving the four legal components of negligence.
In Georgia, these elements include:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
Establishing these elements means collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and canvassing the accident scene. The sooner you notify our team about your loss, the more time we have to conduct a thorough investigation.
While we do all this, you can focus on taking care of your family.
We Will Build Your Case at No Upfront Cost
Kaine Law extends legal help on a contingency-fee basis. At no upfront cost, we will:
- Review the details and merits of your case
- Finance your case’s obligations, including its consulting costs
- Investigate and gather supporting evidence
- Locate and interview the accident’s witnesses
- Prepare your case for negotiations or trial
- Negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurer
We don’t want to add financial concerns to your stress. This means we accept a percentage of the settlement or verdict we win for you in lieu of charging up front attorney’s fees.
We are up front and transparent about our percentage and the advantages of working on a contingency-fee basis. We want to support your family during this challenging time.

Know Which Family Members Are Entitled to Compensation
An unexpected loss will affect every family member, friend, and loved one of the deceased. However, according to O.C.G.A. § 51-4-2, only specific individuals can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
- The decedent’s surviving spouse
- If the decedent was unmarried, their child(ren)
In some cases, parents or the decedent’s representatives can file a wrongful death action. Our legal team will examine your familial relationship and clarify your legal position.

Georgia’s Statute of Limitations Limits How Long You Have to Seek Damages
When our law firm represents you, we negotiate hard for a financial settlement that compensates your family for its financial and emotional damages.
Prompt legal action is important because:
- O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33 generally gives you two years to file your lawsuit against the at-fault party.
- O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5 generally entitles you to six months to file your lawsuit against a government agency.
The statute of limitations can be complex. Our familiarity with wrongful death laws means we can make sure your case is filed in time to remove the risks of non-compliance. If the statute of limitations expires on your case, you could lose the right to seek damages.
