How Do I Know If I Have A Florida Wrongful Death Claim?
Question: What categorizes a Florida wrongful death claim?
Answer: A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed against a party that was the cause of the death through negligence. The lawsuit can be brought by family members of the deceased such as a spouse, child or other family member who depended upon financial or emotional support from the deceased.
There are several different scenarios that can cause a wrongful death in Florida and other states. For example:
- Auto accidents
- Hit and run accidents
- Elder abuse
If there is enough evidence from a wrongful death claim, the grieving party may be able to collect compensation for their loss.
It is important to contact a South Florida wrongful death lawyer who has experience and is able to investigate the case. Once the investigation is complete, the attorney can calculate how much compensation you may be eligible to receive.
