Wrongful Death Lawyer Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
Do you have a family member who died suddenly in a tragic accident caused by someone else’s negligence? Florida law allows the deceased person’s family members and beneficiaries to file a wrongful death claim against the person or company believed to be responsible for their death.
The sudden death must have been preventable and completely unexpected. For example, if a company creates a product that ends up killing a consumer unexpectedly, you would have legal grounds to sue the company over their liability in the matter. There are dozens of circumstances where another person or company’s negligence can cause someone to die.
Naturally, you probably have many questions about the wrongful death of your family member and how you can seek civil justice over it in the form of compensation. Even though no price tag can bring back your loved one, you can at least hold the negligent parties responsible for their death. Whether they end up being held criminally liable is another matter. But you can still hold them accountable in civil court regardless of whether they’ve been charged in a criminal court.

When Do You Need to Hire a Wrongful Death Lawyer?
When someone dies because another person or company was negligent by not taking reasonable steps to prevent their death, then you have legal grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit against them. The at-fault parties could be drunk drivers, car manufacturers, doctors, employers, burglars, property owners, construction companies, or any other party whose careless actions caused the death of your loved one.
Since the deceased person cannot seek compensation, it is up to their immediate family members and beneficiaries to seek it on their behalf. Florida law allows you to seek compensation based on the following types of damages:
- Loss of companionship provided by the deceased family member
- Loss of support and care provided by the deceased family member
- Emotional pain and suffering resulting from their sudden death
- Punitive damages for the at-fault party’s intentional or unintentional actions
Florida Statutes Section 95.11 states that the family members and beneficiaries of wrongful death victims have up to two years to file a wrongful death claim against all the liable parties. Therefore, if you believe you have a legal case for filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you should hire a wrongful death lawyer to represent you in the matter as soon as possible.
A wrongful death lawyer understands the Florida laws surrounding wrongful death incidents. You’ll need a legal professional who can use their knowledge of the law to seek maximum compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one.
Immediate family members and dependents have the legal right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault parties. These immediate family members could include the deceased’s children, spouse, parents, or other legal dependents. The type of compensation you can seek depends on your specific relationship with the deceased and the level of care and companionship they provided to you.
Pain and suffering are always one type of compensation you can seek, but there may be other types too. Consult with a wrongful death lawyer to learn more about how much compensation you are entitled to receive for your particular wrongful death case.
