Wrongful Death


The death of a loved one is never easy. Losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence is even more difficult. The last thing you and your family want to think of after losing a loved one is bringing a lawsuit; however, this may be necessary if you lost your loved one as a result of another party’s negligence. In order to succeed with a wrongful death claim your attorney must prove that your loved one died as the result of another’s negligence, whether it is a person or company and that the accident was preventable had the other party acted responsibly. Wrongful death can include death resulting from a driver’s negligence that caused a motor vehicle accident, use of a defective product, medical malpractice, negligent security, nursing home abuse and a catastrophic incident, among other incidents.

A thorough understanding of the law is essential to help you face the realities of life after the death of a loved one. Losing a loved one isn’t only difficult emotionally, but can also be difficult financially. While no amount of money can replace your loved one, losing the decedent’s income can also make it very difficult for you, a surviving spouse, children and other family members to maintain the same quality of life. A high quality Florida wrongful death attorney can help you recover the compensation you deserve from the loss of your loved one. The compensation can improve your quality of life and the quality of life of the surviving family by helping to cover mortgage payments, rent, education tuition and credit card payments. The surviving family can consist of the decedent’s spouse, children, parents and any blood relative or adoptive brothers and sisters whom the decedent wholly or partly supported or offered services to. Further, there are several expenses that get piled on you when a loved one passes away, including funeral and burial costs, medical expenses and loss of benefits. A wrongful death award can cover any and all of these expenses, in addition to pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of companionship.

Bringing a wrongful death claim can be emotionally taxing. Florida law imposes strict requirements on when a lawsuit for wrongful death claims can be brought, also known as the statute of limitations. In addition to the statute of limitations, insurance companies will fight your claims in an attempt to limit the amount of compensation they have to pay out to you.
