Bobbi Kristina Brown's family wins wrongful death claim

Bobby Kristina Brown, the daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died after she was found unresponsive in her Atlanta home last year. On Nov. 17, Brown's family members were awarded $36 million after filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Brown's former boyfriend, Nick Gordon. The monetary award was calculated after the Fulton County court found Gordon 'legally responsible" for Brown's death in September.

Wrongful death claims and statutes of limitation

When a Georgia resident dies under questionable circumstances, it is not always immediately apparent that the death resulted from negligence. This is important because wrongful death cases have statutes of limitations that apply, and if a statute of limitations expires before a case is filed, the family members may not be able to recover damages.

Premises liability and assaults

As many Georgia residents unfortunately have found out, arguments that start out in a bar can quickly escalate from somewhat minor disagreements into violent fights. Although the perpetrator is often the recipient of criminal charges, the criminal justice system will not be able to bring much to the victim of the assault other than some degree of satisfaction. These victims often require extensive medical care and treatment, and in many cases, they might not be able to return to employment for prolonged periods, with the resulting wage loss worsening their financial condition.
