Wrongful Death

Boca Raton Divorce Lawyer, Personal Injury & Civil Litigation Since 1984

If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, then there is no doubt that you want some kind of justice. You did not ask that your loved one be taken from you, nor did they. Fortunately, you may take legal action with the help of a Boca Raton negligence lawyer.

While taking legal action may not be a priority for those who just lost a loved one, retaining the legal help of a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible can prove beneficial. Perhaps you are a dependent of the decedent and you do not make sufficient money to support yourself and your family. The accident may have resulted in unanticipated medical expenses or funeral costs. There may not be adequate life insurance to cover these expenses. There are many types of compensation that can be sought in a wrongful death case. Holding the negligent party accountable may assist the aggrieved family in varying ways including building a financial foundation.

Ease Financial Burden

Compensation secured in a wrongful death lawsuit can ease the financial burden through a very emotionally and trying time. The Florida Wrongful Death Act allows survivors of a person killed due to another’s negligence to seek compensation for loss of support or services. The personal representative of the decedent’s estate may bring a wrongful death action on behalf of the decedent’s survivors which may include a spouse, parent, or child who were dependent on the victim for emotional and financial support.

Because there is a time limit for filing wrongful death lawsuits in Florida, it is important to act immediately because failure to act can prejudice the damages available to the injured parties.

Securing Wrongful Death Damages For You

A surviving spouse can recover compensation for loss of protection and companionship, mental pain and suffering. Children can recover damages for loss of companionship, guidance, and instruction and for mental pain and suffering. A parent may be entitled to recover compensation for mental pain and suffering. Survivors may be able to recover the value of loss of support, loss of future support and services, and medical and funeral expenses.

The goal is to relieve those injured due to the loss of a loved one of the financial burden resulting from the negligence of another. You should not have to pay the consequences for something that you did not cause. Instead, the negligent party should be held accountable so that you can move on with your life in the best way possible.
