A wrongful death in Florida can happen just by merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people. Unfortunately a wrongful death accident affects the loved ones that are left behind. Not only is the family left grieving, but they may also be left in a financial disaster that will affect their future.
Many people who have lost loved ones from a wrongful death in Florida may not realize that they are able to be compensated for their loss. An experienced wrongful death attorney should be contacted to see if there is any compensation that the family can collect.
3 Common Causes of a Wrongful Death
Although there are several different causes of a wrongful death, here are three common causes of a wrongful death in Florida and nationwide:
A work-related wrongful death. A work-related wrongful death accident can occur on construction sites or in factories. In most work-related environments it is expected that employees should be kept safe. Unfortunately that is not always true, and an accident may occur resulting in a death. When this happens, it is the company that may be held liable.
Work-related accidents and wrongful deaths may be from:
A product liability wrongful death. Manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, and distributors all may be liable for a Florida wrongful death if they have a defective or faulty product. It can simply be a design defect, manufacturing defect or failure to provide ample warnings to consumers regarding product defects.
If consumers can prove to the court that a product liability wrongful death occurred, they may be eligible for compensation.
An automobile accident wrongful death. Many automobile accidents can result in the death of another person as the result of impairment or negligence from another driver or person. They may be charged with a wrongful death, and families may be compensated for their loss.
If you are uncertain about your legal rights of any claims from the negligence of another person or company, ask yourself these following questions:
- Was your loved one’s death caused by a defective product, person or company?
- Did your loved one’s death result from the negligence of another person?
- Was there emotional damage and adverse effects to the family resulting from the loss of your loved one?
- Is there now a financial hardship as the result of the wrongful death incident?
To see if you have a claim and you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it is time to contact a Florida wrongful death attorney that can help you. An experienced wrongful death attorney will review all the facts of your case and help collect for monetary damages.
