What Counts As A Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death is a legal term for a fatal event that happened as a result of a third party's negligence or misconduct. These incidents can occur in various ways, such as when an employer fails to maintain proper safeguards around industrial machinery or a restaurant neglects to let diners know about ingredients that might cause severe allergic reactions.

At-fault parties don't have to be directly involved in the death. For instance, a bar that supplies an obviously intoxicated person with alcohol may be deemed partially responsible when that person later causes a drunk driving accident.

How Do Wrongful Death Lawsuits Help Survivors Cope?

Florida allows certain survivors and the estates of wrongful death victims to claim various damages in civil court. For instance, someone's spouse may sue for the companionship they can no longer enjoy. A victim's children might sue for the pain and suffering they experienced after losing their parent. These lawsuits can also be used to cover more tangible damages, such as lost wages, medical costs and funeral expenses.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit does more than simply help you pursue compensation, however. When managed properly, this process can be essential to ensuring that you obtain a sense of emotional closure.

What It Takes To Win

Winning a wrongful death case depends on being able to prove how an at-fault party contributed to the death as well as establishing how the incident impacted the survivors. My 30-year track record as a lawyer and my unparalleled attention to detail are priceless assets for anyone seeking to pursue legal action.
