Receive Compensation For the Death of A Loved One
Every year, up to 100,000 individuals lose their lives because of another person’s carelessness or negligence. The loss of a loved one is always a tragic, particularly when the death occurs due to an accident brought on by malpractice or recklessness. If a family member or loved one has suffered a wrongful death at the hands of another’s failure to use reasonable care, you may be entitled to sue for monetary compensation.
When Can I File a Wrongful Death Suit?
A wrongful death action can be filed when a loved one is killed through the neglect, irresponsibility, or criminal acts of another. We understand that the loss of a loved one can be difficult, especially financially. Under Florida statute, the negligence that took place does not have to be the cause of death in order to file a claim. If your loved one suffered an injury at the hands of another that subsequently lead to their death, you may be able to sue for wrongful death.
In many cases, the causes of wrongful death include:
- Car and truck accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Work-related conditions or substances
- Product malfunction
- Criminal negligence
Even if your case does fall into these categories, you may still be eligible for compensation if a wrongful death occurred.
What Type of Damages Can I Claim?
At DRG Law Firm, we treat each claim with individual care and attention. Wrongful death actions are civil suits typically brought by survivors that relied on the deceased for financial or emotional support, usually a spouse, parent, or child. The value of your claim will depend on factors such as the earning potential of the deceased and the cause of wrongful death. There is a Florida statute that limits the amount of time you can make a wrongful death claim to two (2) years from the incident. Because of this, it is imperative that you contact a Miami wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to help you file a claim for the following damages:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Economic support
- Household services
- Mental pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of support
- Loss of parental guidance
