When a loved one dies, most people are understandably consumed with grief rather than worrying about filing a lawsuit. Eventually though, the expenses associated with a loved one’s death and the harassment by creditors about those bills become a painful reminder of how unfair and devastating wrongful death can be. To make matters worse, wrongful death claims are notoriously difficult to prove and require expert legal representation to secure a sufficient settlement or verdict.
A to Z Injury Firm is a Miami based personal
injury law firm committed to protecting the rights of our clients and their loved ones. Our wrongful death attorneys have spent years handling the burden of wrongful death claim negotiations and legal battles so families can focus on grieving the loss of their loved ones without the extra stress of worrying about statutes of limitations expiring, which is 2 years for wrongful death according to Florida Statue 9.511(4)d. Wrongful death can result from catastrophic car accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect, criminal behavior, chemical exposure, workplace accidents, and several other causes.
If an individual or company acts recklessly or negligently, and those actions have led to a death in your family, you will want to consult with an attorney who specializes in handling cases such as yours. The sooner a lawyer can begin collecting evidence to prove that your loved one’s death was the fault of another, the sooner you can begin to heal from the nightmare of your family member’s passing. Under Florida law, wrongful death claims typically are made for pain and suffering, loss of companionship and the value of lost support. In addition, the state generally allows claims for damages incurred when the injury occurred to the point of death, plus interest, in addition to projected future earnings. According to the Center for Disease Control, accidents account for more than 160,000 wrongful deaths each year. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that juries hear more than 2,500 malpractice-related wrongful death cases annually. Many more settle before going to trial, and a number of Florida wrongful death cases are never known by family members to have been the fault of another person. If you have lost a loved one in South Florida, you can consult with one of the experienced wrongful death attorneys at A to Z free of charge. Our lawyers work on contingency, meaning that we do not collect any payment from our clients unless we secure justice in their favor.
