Wrongful Death Committed to Relentlessly Pursuing Justice

Jacksonville Wrongful Death Lawyers

Your Path to Justice for Your Loved One Starts Here.

If a loved one has passed away in an accident that could have been avoided, you may be able to bring a wrongful death case in the state of Florida. We know that this does not alleviate grieving, but it can help you keep your head above water and support your family after unexpectedly losing someone.

By law, the people who are permitted to bring a wrongful death claim and receive compensation are the spouses of the deceased, minor children of the deceased, or parents to minors who were lost in an accident.

Common Wrongful Death Claims.

Wrongful death happens when there is either a person or an entity who acts in a negligent or careless manner that results in the death of your loved one. Sometimes that means someone breached a legal obligation to keep your loved one safe. Sometimes it means that they did something that directly caused the death of your loved one. The most common wrongful death cases arise from the following list.

  • Auto accidents (such as car, trucks, buses, boats, and motorcycles)
  • Drownings in an unsafe facility
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction accidents
  • Dog attacks
  • Defective products
  • Acts of violence

How Wrongful Death Compensation Works.

It is very hard to determine how much compensation should be given for wrongful death due to a lot of the damages being considered non-economic, such as the loss of companionship. Many times, an expert will be brought in to evaluate the case to determine the economic damages, which could include: 

  • Any medical bills that are owed due to an attempt at life-saving treatment
  • Expenses and costs for the funeral
  • Any lost wages or income that you would have received from the deceased throughout their lifetime to support the family before their untimely death
  • A loss of companionship for the surviving family members after losing this extremely important person in their life
