Wrongful death is a type of lawsuit brought by the surviving relatives of a deceased person against the negligent party that caused the death. Usually, these actions are derived from a negligent or reckless act such as liability from car accidents, industrial accidents, medical malpractice, or defective products.
Losing a loved can be a devastating and traumatic experience, especially if the cause of death could have been prevented. If you lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person or a defective product, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible parties.
It is imperative that you contact an experienced wrongful death attorney who will be your advocate and fight to ensure you and your family receive the compensation you deserve.
In the state of Florida, the family members of individuals who have died as the result of another’s wrongful act are permitted to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages caused by the death. Each wrongful death case has its own unique set of circumstances, and the type of damages recoverable depends on numerous factors, including the relationship of each family member to the decedent.
