What damages can I recover for the wrongful death of a loved one?

The damages recoverable in a Georgia wrongful death action include the victim’s expected earnings, or the value of the victim’s services, from the date of the victim’s death due to negligence to the statistically projected date of natural death (using life tables), plus an intangible element representing the full value of the life to the victim.
