Most people in Florida can relate to the loss of a loved one in some way. Sometimes we lose a loved one to an unpreventable illness or simply old age. The grief that follows such a loss is profound. However, imagine if your loved one's death could have been prevented. That grief is fraught not just with sorrow but also with anger and pain.
For example, say a loved one died in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. That driver should never have been on the road, but their poor decisions caused your loved one to die unnecessarily. Or, say your loved one died because their physician made a medical mistake. We trust medical professionals to fulfill their duty of care when treating patients, so when a physician makes a negligent mistake, the resulting death is even more tragic.
When a person's death is caused by the negligence of another, his or her surviving family mambers may be able to pursue compensation through a wrongful death claim. Such a lawsuit could provide the victim's survivors with the financial resources they need to move on from their loved one's death, and it can give them a feeling that justice has been done. However, a wrongful death lawsuit can be complex. For this reason, many people choose to seek help with their wrongful death claims.
