You deserve compensation for the unexpected and wrongful death of your loved one.
While no amount of money will ever be enough to compensate you for losing someone you love, you may be entitled to recover money from those responsible. For many families this money is critical to ease the financial pressure brought on by sudden tragedy and loss. In addition, defendants who are held accountable and have to pay will rethink their negligent ways, which can prevent future injuries and deaths for other families.
A wrongful death can be caused by a wide variety of incidents and accidents including, but not limited to:
Slip and fall
Inadequate security at an event or venue
Construction site accident
and a wide variety of other accidents.
During the chaotic and stressful moments and days after the accident it is extremely important that information is gathered. Any proof available that shows the fault of the person or company that was responsible for the death should be kept. This includes:
Photos of the accident scene
Names and contact information of witnesses and responders
The defective product.
Wrongful Death Survivor Claims and Wrongful Death Bystander Claims
Survivor Claims are for family members and dependents left behind after a wrongful death. Bystander Claims are for the trauma inflicted when a family member is there on scene and is actually a witness to the loss of their loved one.
In Florida, family members are entitled to compensation for a variety of reasons:
Loss of support and benefits from the deceased
Loss of companionship and protection
Mental pain and suffering
Lost companionship, instruction, and/or guidance
Medical and funeral expenses when paid by a survivor
The estate of your lost loved one is also entitled to compensation (which will pass on to his or her heirs after the estate is settled) for losses such as:
Lost job income
