Miami Wrongful Death
Having a loved one suddenly ripped away from can be devastating. Learning that your loved one was ripped away from you because of another person’s negligent actions can be frustrating and heartbreaking. Examples of negligent conduct can include reckless or negligent driving, marketing and selling a defective product, engaging in medical malpractice, providing negligent security and abusing or neglecting nursing home patients. Wrongful death claims arise when your loved one’s death is a direct result of another person’s actions or inactions. In order to successfully litigate a wrongful death claim, the Miami wrongful death attorneys must prove that your loved one died as a result of another person’s negligence and that the accident was preventable had the negligent party acted responsibly.
While losing a loved one can be emotionally traumatizing, it can also be financially debilitating. It can be difficult losing the income a loved one once provided. No amount of money will ever replace your loved one, but compensation can help improve or restore the quality of life you enjoyed before your loved one was taken from you. Compensation cannot replace your loved one, but it can help cover mortgage payments, rent, education expenses, credit card payments and other expenses. Additional expenses that arise after the death of a loved one include medical expenses and funeral and burial costs; in addition, the loss of benefits can add additional financial pressure. Any surviving member of the surviving family can bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of their lost loved one to recover compensation. Surviving family includes the decedent’s spouse, children, parents and any blood relative or adoptive sibling whom the decedent supported. A wrongful death award for the loss of your loved one can help alleviate the financial strain.
After your loved one has passed away, you will often have to insurance companies, who will try to avoid paying out your claim. While it might seem difficult or too soon to file a wrongful death claim, it must be done sooner rather than later because Florida law imposes strict requirements on when these claims can be brought.
