The personal injury attorneys at PETION LAW have seen how devastating it can be for families that have lost a loved one due to another’s recklessness or wrongdoing. That is why we have dedicated our careers to helping surviving family members seek justice for their loved ones and recover the financial compensation needed to move forward from such a tragic loss. We can help you understand your legal rights and options after the wrongful death of a family member.
During a wrongful death claim families hold an at-fault party accountable for the death of a loved one in a fatal accident. The type of accident generally does not matter as long as it can be proven that the responsible party’s negligent or wrongful actions caused the death. Through a wrongful death claim, the survivors may pursue compensation for the economic and non-economic damages caused by the death, such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and funeral costs.
Wrongful death claims in Florida are brought on behalf of the Estate of a person whose death was caused by a devastating, catastrophic underlying legal event like negligence, accident, product failure or medical malpractice. A wrongful death claim is based on an underlying civil wrong which has tragic results for the decedent, family members and children. A case is filed against the manufacturer or the tortfeasor (“wrongdoer”) on behalf of the decedent’s Estate and heirs.
Unfortunately, devastating accidents happen every day across Florida that tragically cut someone’s life short. Wrongful death lawsuits can involve a wide range of fatal accidents, such as auto accidents, crimes, dangerous premises, medical malpractice, worksite accidents, and more.
