Coral Gables Wrongful Death
Losing a loved one is one of the most devastating, tragic life experiences. Discovering that your loved one died as the result of another individual’s negligent choices can be frustrating and agonizing. Some examples of negligent actions include advertising and selling a faulty product, being involved in medical malpractice, abusing or neglecting nursing home patients, maintaining negligent security, and careless or negligent driving. Wrongful death claims can exist when your loved one’s death was caused directly by another individual’s actions or lack of actions. In litigating a wrongful death suit, the Coral Gables wrongful death lawyers must show that your loved one died because of someone else’s negligence and that the cause of death was preventable had the negligent person acted responsibly.
Not only can losing a loved one be emotionally overwhelming, it can also be financially crippling. It can be difficult for a family to lose the income that once came from a loved one. While no amount of money can replace your loved one, compensation can assist you in restoring or advancing the quality of life you enjoyed prior to your loved one being taken from you. Compensation will not replace your loved one, but it can help you take care of necessary expenses, including mortgage payments, rent, credit card expenses, education expenses, and other costs. After a loved one dies, additional expenses typically arise. These expenses can include medical costs and funeral and burial costs. Additionally, the loss of a loved one’s benefits can bring additional financial stress.
Any member of the surviving family can bring a wrongful death suit to recover compensation on behalf of their deceased loved one. Surviving family includes the loved one’s parents, children, spouse, and any blood relative or adoptive sibling that was supported by the loved one. Compensation from a wrongful death case brought on behalf of your lost loved one can help alleviate the financial pressure.
After losing a loved one, you will likely have to deal with insurance companies, who often do not want to pay out your claim. Although it may be hard to bring a wrongful death claim soon after your loved one has died, it is important that you bring the claim as soon as possible because the law places strict time limits on these types of cases.
