Bradenton Wrongful Death Attorney
Protecting the Rights of Families
Losing a loved one as the result of an unforeseen accident is an experience difficult to express in words. When the accident was caused by another's carelessness, negligence or wrongful act, feelings of grief and injustice can be exacerbated. If your loved one has been a victim of wrongful death, allow our firm to support and guide you through these troubling times.
Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe any death caused by the negligence of another. Wrongful deaths can occur as the result of a variety of events, ranging from car accidents to the use of unsafe or defective products. They may also be committed by a single person or by a corporate entity. Regardless of the precise situation involved, families of victims are forced to endure powerful emotional and financial burdens. Thankfully, Florida law allows certain eligible family members to hold wrongdoers liable for the damages they caused.
According to §768.16 of the Florida Statutes, or the Florida Wrongful Death Act, survivors of the decedent can pursue wrongful death claims. These may include spouses, children, parents, and other blood or adoptive relatives, depending on the circumstances. Successful claims can allow families to recover compensation for any medical and funeral expenses, emotional injuries, and the loss of financial support.
