WRONGFUL DEATH IN SOUTH FLORIDA
If someone passes away because someone else did or did not do something, the deceased individual’s estate may have a wrongful death claim. Florida law allows the heirs of a person who passed away to pursue financial compensation against others who may have caused the condition which led to a person’s death.
For example, if a family loses a loved one in a car accident in Florida, the family can sue to recover money from the at-fault driver and his or her insurance company. That said, many wrongful death claims arise from other causes more chronic in nature like nursing home abuse, hospital admissions, and long-term exposure of certain products. What is important to understand is that Florida allows a family to sue on their loved one’s behalf.
Note that many lawyers, including Matthew Waring, lists “wrongful death” as a practice area. Some personal injury lawyers do not take wrongful death cases because an estate must be opened before an attorney can represent the family who lost a loved one. Matthew Waring works with several trustworthy estates lawyers who know the fastest and most affordable way to open an estate to allow you to begin investigating the causes of a loved one’s death.
