Eldridge's Georgia Wrongful Death Actions with Forms examines the hidden legal dangers, tricks, and pitfalls often associated with bringing a wrongful death action in Georgia. Along with a discussion of the state's early legislative and judicial history, the volume examines Georgia's conflict of laws, rules, and related federal legislation. Topics discussed include:
- The negligent conduct that may give rise to a cause of action
- The parties who are vested with the right of action
- The potential defenses and other matters that may bar the action
- Evidence that may be admitted at trial
- The measure of damages that must be used to determine the amount of recovery
- The individuals who are entitled to participate in that recovery
A chapter of pleading and practice forms is provided as a guide for drafting forms for cases.
