"Wrongful Death" is a legal term that is used to describe the wrongful killing of another person. Wrongful deaths usually occur unexpectedly from a variety of causes including:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
These types of deaths are always hard for families to contend with as the death is sudden and often times preventable, as many wrongful deaths are caused by other people's negligence.
When a family loses a loved one because of the negligent or wrongful conduct of another, they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the responsible party. Under Florida law, a person who is negligent or reckless or who intentionally harms another person may be held liable in civil court to compensate the victim's family and dependents for medical expenses, funeral costs, pain and suffering of survivors, loss of support and services, and economic damages. If you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death situation, you should speak with a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney immediately.
