Boynton Beach Wrongful Death Attorney
It is not easy to face the unexpected loss of a loved one. You and your family will have to suffer from overwhelming grief, but things can be even more painful if the death could have been prevented.
The loss of a loved one can affect the surviving family members in many ways. Besides the grief, it can also cause financial losses. The final expenses may be a challenge for the family. The deceased member may have been solely responsible for the family’s financial condition. A wrongful death lawsuit allows you to seek compensation from the responsible party for causing the negligent death of your loved one.
If you strongly believe that your loved one was a victim of wrongful death due to someone’s negligence, we at Jesse Davidson, P.A. can help you get properly compensated. We are an experienced and trusted Boynton Beach Personal Injury Law Firm specializing in wrongful death suits.
What is Classified as Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is when someone dies due to the misconduct or negligence of a party. The dependents or beneficiaries of the deceased may be entitled to damages as compensation from the at-fault party. The different scenarios of wrongful death are as follows:
Emergency Room Medical Malpractice: The negligence of hospital workers in the emergency room can instigate a wrongful death lawsuit. Examples can include misdiagnoses of conditions, surgical errors, and/or premature discharge of the patient.
Auto Accidents: Trucking companies can be held responsible for accidents involving their employees if they don’t follow regulations. Automobile manufacturers can also be held liable in such suits for making defective components.
Anesthesia Malpractice: A wrongful death suit can also be initiated if an anesthesiologist causes the death of a loved one by administering a fatal dosage.
Birth injuries and workplace accidents can also amount to wrongful death.
Wrongful Death Compensation
The state of Florida allows the heirs to file a wrongful death lawsuit if the death is caused by the negligence of a loved one. We can evaluate your case and assist you in determining the potential damages you may be able to receive. Some of the common factors considered by courts include:
How much the deceased earned
Savings created by the deceased
Loss of companionship
Medical and funeral costs
How much were the survivors financially dependent on the deceased
Financial compensation will never bring back a loved one, but its objective is to ensure the financial security of the survivors for the future. A wrongful death suit also intends to bring the responsible parties to justice. It can also provide a sense of closure for the family members.
