Wrongful Death

Facing The Sudden Loss Of A Spouse, Child Or Parent

People lose loved ones every day because of negligent physicians, drunk drivers, fatigued semi-truck drivers or other careless individuals. If another party’s negligence caused your loved one’s death, you must protect the legal rights of the deceased. In wrongful death instances, Florida law allows certain surviving family members to obtain compensation based on the total dollar amount of the loss to each survivor.

Underage Children Who Have Lost A Parent

Minor children of a wrongful death victim — including newborns to individuals in their early 20s — are usually entitled to recover for the loss of guidance, the loss of affection, financial support and cost of the routine services provided by the deceased parent.

Recovery For The Victim

The estate of the victim also has the right to seek compensation for the restoration of the loss of wealth that would have accumulated in the deceased’s prospective estate had the wrongful death not intervened.
