Wrongful Death –

The state of Florida Wrongful Death Act states, “When the death of a person is caused by the wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract or warranty of any person… and the event would have entitled the person injured to maintain an action and recover damages if death had not ensued, the person… that would have been liable in damages if death had not ensued shall be liable for damages as specified in this act...”

Losing a loved one is never easy, and losing someone suddenly as the result of a tragic event is one of the hardest things a partner or family member will experience. The resulting loss can be economic: medical bills and funeral expenses are forwarded to those left behind, and future wages that would have gone to pay the bills will not be forthcoming. There are also non-economic losses: a wife or husband will never see their spouse; a child will never have their parent’s guidance.

The pain and suffering, guilt, grief and mental anguish experienced by those left alive is incalculable and would never have existed if it weren’t for someone's unreasonable act, careless behavior or negligence. However, the legal rights of the deceased need to be protected. I can do that with respect, dignity, and compassion.
