THE AVERAGE WRONGFUL DEATH CASE IS WORTH TENS OF THOUSANDS TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
The death of a loved one is always a very difficult thing to handle. When it is due to the negligence, recklessness, or deliberate act of another, we can help you to recover the appropriate damages from the party responsible. Often the responsible party will attempt to settle the case for significantly less than a fair amount of money. Ensure that you retain an attorney that has the experience, knowledge, and skill to investigate, litigate, and resolve your case in a way that causes you to receive proper compensation.
Wrongful death does leave surviving family members the unpleasant task of dealing with the costs of hospital bills and funeral expenses in addition to the trauma caused by the death of a loved one.
It is important that you contact a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible in order for him to begin to shift the expenses from the survivors to the person or entity responsible for the wrongful death. Once you retain your attorney, he can work to investigate the complex case, with the help of expert witnesses. Your attorney will review medical records, police reports, and all other relevant documents. Your attorney will speak to witnesses, investigate the legal issues, and present the appropriate arguments to win your case. Your attorney will work with medical experts to establish the cause of death and show that the wrongdoer did cause the death through reckless or negligent actions.
Wrongful death lawsuits result from the negligence of others in any sort of accident, including drunk-driving accidents, dog bites, and a nursing home abuse.
In such a case in Florida, a family member may receive compensation for:
- Medical Expenses
- Funeral Expenses
- Loss of future assets or income that the estate would have gained
- Loss of love, affection, companionship, support and services (spouses right for joint life expectancy)
- Loss of parental companionship, instruction, and guidance
- Mental Pain and Emotional Suffering
- Punitive Damages
