Qualifies As A Wrongful
Death Case In Hallandale?
Under Florida law, wrongful death claims can apply to any case where a person has been killed due to the negligence or intentional acts of another person or entity.
We understand that losing a family income earner can have a devastating impact on your life, and are committed to using our legal expertise to reduce the burden of:
- Medical expenses incurred between the time of injury and time of death
- Support services required from time of injury to time of death
- Funeral costs
- Loss of the deceased’s expected future earnings, from age of death until expected retirement age
- Work-related medical benefits
- Pension plan
- Any other financial impact of your loved one’s untimely death
Under Florida law, a wrongful death claim can be brought by any one, or more, people who fall into the qualifying categories. Florida’s Wrongful Death Law states that the case must be raised by a personal representative of the deceased, who will normally be named in their will. Where the deceased did not have a will, the courts will appoint a representative to this role.
When filing a lawsuit on behalf of the deceased, the representative will seek damages which can be recovered by:
- The spouse of the deceased
- Children of the deceased
- The deceased’s surviving parents
- Any dependent blood relatives of the deceased
