Brandon Wrongful Death Attorney

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that unintentional injury is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and accounted for over 130,500 U.S. deaths in 2013 alone. Suddenly and unexpectedly losing a loved one is often an extraordinarily traumatic experience. However, the tragedy often only increases when the death was caused by a negligent, careless, or intentional act of another party. If the party had not acted in some type of wrongful manner, the death may not have occurred and, for this reason, many surviving families seek a sense of justice and want to hold the responsible party liable for their losses. Contact our Brandon wrongful death attorneys for more information.

Deceased individuals do not have the legal ability to file a lawsuit for their own fatal injuries. For this reason, Florida law gives surviving family members the right to bring a legal claim against the liable party in the state Wrongful Death Act. Examples of family members who may file a claim under the law include surviving spouse, children, or parents. By filing a wrongful death claim, family members may be able to recover financial compensation for the following:

  • Mental pain and emotional suffering;
  • Loss of companionship, protection, support, and services;
  • Loss of guidance, instruction, or companionship of a parent; and
  • Any funeral, burial, or medical expenses paid by the family members bringing the claim.

Though receiving money can never bring your loved one back to you, it can assist you in moving on with your life after your unexpected tragic event.

Experienced wrongful death attorneys handle a wide variety of cases

Many different kinds of incidents can lead to wrongful death claims, including some of the following:

  • Auto accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Falls down stairs or from other heights
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Accidents caused by dangerous products
  • Workplace accidents
  • Drownings
  • Assaults or other violent acts

The legal issues in each wrongful death case can vary widely depending on the cause of the death and the parties who were responsible. Cases can range from a claim against a single individual for drunk driving to a lawsuit facing a giant manufacturing corporation for selling a dangerous pharmaceutical, and everywhere in between. It is imperative that anyone considering a wrongful death claim seeks assistance from a Brandon wrongful death attorney who has the skill and experience necessary to address the issues in your specific case.
