Clearwater Wrongful Death Attorney
A “wrongful death” occurs when someone dies as a result of negligence whether it arises out of a motor vehicle accident, nursing home abuse or neglect, medical malpractice, on-the-job accident, or any other type of negligent conduct. Florida’s Wrongful Death Act [Statutes Sections 768.16-768.27] gives certain family members the right to recover damages for the wrongful death. Contact our experienced Clearwater wrongful death attorneys for more information.
If a close family member has died due to the negligence, recklessness or other misdeeds of another person or entity, we can help you receive justice and make them accountable for their actions. Although no amount of money can replace your loved one, Florida law does entitle you to seek damages from the negligent party to compensate you for the following:
- Your pain and suffering as a result of losing your loved one.
- The lost earnings of the family member who has died.
- Your loss of the companionship you previously had with your loved one.
- Money paid for burial and funeral expenses.
- Reimbursement or payment of medical expenses.
- Reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses.
A lawsuit for the wrongful death is brought by the Personal Representative of the estate of the deceased individual for the benefit of the estate and the decedent’s survivors to recover all damages resulting from the wrongful death. Under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, the survivors include the decedent’s spouse, children under 25 years of age, parents, and, when partly or wholly dependent on the decedent for support or services, any blood relatives and adoptive brothers and sisters.
