Breathing is often taken for granted, especially breathing in clean air. We all assume that our work, home, and places we go will have safe air. While it should be this way, some employers and even property owners do not take the precautions necessary to make sure our environments are safe for breathing.

Here are some examples that could cause serious injuries or death to innocent victims who may be exposed to the following toxic substances:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Asbestos
  • Lead paint
  • Oil or gas spills

When toxic exposure occurs and claims the life of someone you love, you have a right to recover damages and hold that company, employer or landlord liable for your loved one’s death. You can do this by filing a Florida wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.

The wrongful death of your family member could have been prevented if your loved one’s employer would have ensured proper ventilation, if a landlord would have installed carbon monoxide detectors, or if the property owner would have tested for lead paint. Employers or property owners can be held liable for toxic exposure that caused a wrongful death.

A South Florida wrongful death lawyer can help you file your claim and recover the appropriate amount for your pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of future income and more.
