A wrongful death situation arises when a preventable death
occurred as a direct result of anotherís actions or failure to act. A
wrongful death claim may be brought against a doctor or other medical
worker, hospital, driver of a vehicle, or person whose violent action
resulted in death. Family members of the deceased may be able to collect
money damages; including pain and suffering, lost income, mental anguish,
medical bills, burial expenses and other costs with the help of an
experienced wrongful death attorney. Under most statutes, the immediate
family members are allowed to file suit.
The term "wrongful death" includes the claims of
husbands, wives, children, parents, brothers, sisters and financially
dependent children (whether or not formally adopted) when negligence,
reckless or intentional misconduct has caused the death of a family
member. Wrongful death claims include every type of accidental death, regardless
of the specific cause.
Wrongful death cases arise from a variety of circumstances
including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical
malpractice, nursing home abuse, dangerous or defective products,
prescription drugs, animal attacks, unsafe residential
or commercial property, and workplace and job-related mishaps. Whatever
the cause, the wrongful death lawyers of Kaba Law Group, P.L.L.C. Law
Offices can help.Negligence must be proven in wrongful death cases, and
our attorneys are experienced in helping clients prove that the four
critical components of negligence exist in their claim:
1. The defendant had a duty to the deceased,
2. The defendant failed in that duty (breach of duty),
3. That the fatality was caused by the defendantís breach of
4. That the survivors are entitled to damages as a result of
the loss of their loved one. The state of Florida authorizes surviving
family members to be compensated for both economic and non-economic
losses, including loss of financial support, love, care, comfort,
supervision, guidance, household assistance and general society. Some
states also allow surviving family members to be compensated for their
personal grief and suffering.
In addition to establishing negligence, the joint life
expectancy of the deceased and the survivor or beneficiary must be
presented (to establish the loss of future earnings) and the relationship
of the survivor and deceased must also be shown. Finally, effective
presentation of the non-economical or emotional loss suffered by the
survivor is critical to a fair award of damages.
