What Is A Wrongful Death Case?

A wrongful death case is a type of lawsuit brought on behalf of a deceased person's beneficiaries or family members that alleges that the death was attributable to the willful or careless conduct of someone else. A wrongful death attorney can help you receive compensation for financial stresses such as funeral expenses, lost wages of the deceased, estate planning fees and any other financial damages.

When an individual's negligence or recklessness causes the death of another individual, a wrongful death accident has occurred. Most of these types of accidents can be avoided with reasonable care. A wrongful death claim is provided for by Florida statutes and gives beneficiaries a cause of action for their losses. When an individual fails to practice reasonable caution, a wrongful death can occur. These claims involve:

  • Fatal car accidents
  • Accidents caused by dangerous property conditions
  • Animal attacks
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Deaths caused by defective products
  • Medical negligence
  • Neglect in a nursing home
