South Florida Personal Injury Lawyers
The death of a loved one is a profound and horrible event. When someone dies through the negligent act of another, a wrongful death claim can result. A wrongful death lawsuit can arise from any type of personal injury that resulted in death. Our law firm focuses on helping families that have experienced such tragedy and we have developed a unique ability to help those affected by death.
Wrongful Death Claims
The state of Florida has a Wrongful Death Act that is designed to provide compensation for relatives, such as spouses or children, who depended on the deceased for financial or emotional support. Damages can include a wide variety of things, from reimbursement for funeral expenses to long-term support for the decedent’s children. At Lawlor | Zigler, we realize how important it is to provide our clients assistance with legal issues that arise after a death and how important it is that the wrongful death action be quickly and compassionately resolved.
Wrongful Death Damages
Determining the damages in wrongful death lawsuits is incredibly complicated. Our wrongful death lawyers are experienced with Florida’s Wrongful Death Act and have succeeded in seeking compensation in several high-profile cases:
- Confidential settlement for a client that was involved in a rear-end collision and sustained neck and back injuries. Unfortunately, recovery was difficult, and after back surgery, she suffered a pulmonary emulsion and passed away.
- Confidential settlement for a fourteen year old child that was tackled on the football field during a South Florida Youth Football league and laid unconscious on the field. The client subsequently died due to the representatives at the field not having experience in CPR or neck injuries.
- $750,000 settlement for a fourteen year old boy that was stabbed to death at a teen club in West Palm Beach due to negligent security.
If you are the spouse, parent, or children of someone that you believe suffered from a wrongful death, please contact us to help seek damages.
