What is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful Death is a legal claim through a civil action to seek compensation for damages resulting in death from another person or entity’s negligence. A wrongful death claim is usually brought by the decedent’s family to recover the full value of the life of the deceased.
In the state of Florida under the Status of Limitation, there is a time limit for submitting a wrongful death claim, and once this period expires, the court may not have the jurisdiction to mandate the offender to offer compensation.
Therefore, contacting an expert wrongful death attorney at Pipas Law Group very soon is crucial in recovering compensation for a wrongful death case.
Elements of a Wrongful Death Case
In Florida, a wrongful death accident occurs when negligence or recklessness behavior by a third party causes the death of a loved one.
Some common causes of wrongful death in Florida include:
- Construction accidents
- Car accidents
- Bike accident
- Motorcycle accident
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Fatal dog attack
- Drowning accident in an unsecured swimming pool
- Workplace accidents
What are Wrongful Death Damages?
There are three main parties that can be awarded compensation under Florida’s wrongful death law. These include the deceased’s:
- Minor children (under the age of 25 years)
- Dependent Parents
However, in order to gain compensation from a wrongful death claim, your attorney must establish and prove that the deceased has a duty of care for the individual, and that their negligence or recklessness caused a breach to this care.
Hence, you need an experienced, competent, and professional wrongful death lawyer to help you through this complex case.
