Wrongful Death Lawyer in Florida

Losing someone you cherish is one of the most difficult things to face in a lifetime. If an at-fault driver behind the wheel has taken your loved one’s life, you could be entitled to compensation. The best way to recover rightful compensation is to contact a Florida personal injury lawyer. We can file a wrongful death lawsuit and make your case heard.

In Florida courts, proving negligence can be quite difficult. The burden of providing proof and evidence falls on the victim’s surviving family members. Proving that someone’s death was the fault of another party is taxing emotionally and physically. A Florida personal injury attorney can help prove the other party is at fault.

An experienced personal injury lawyer will precisely quantify the wrongful death damages. This includes the estimated loss of income and medical bills. Most important is the difficult task of putting a dollar amount on a human life. This is an emotional, stressful process that our reliable wrongful death attorney team at Dennis Hernandez & Associates is ready to take on for you.

We know the importance of trusting your injury attorney. Our Florida-based personal injury lawyer team will work with you tirelessly to get your family the best possible compensation.

What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death personal injury claims are a civil action where one party’s negligence caused another person to die. In Florida, parents, children, spouses or other relatives that were dependent on the wrongful death victim can file a claim. According to the Florida Wrongful Death Act “allows family members of the deceased to file a wrongful death suit against the person or entity they believe is responsible for their loved one’s death.”

How Much Does it Cost?

It’s possible that somebody with the privilege of a strong legal team might have taken your loved one’s life. Florida businesses, corporations and wealthy individuals will more often than not have incredibly expensive personal injury attorneys. They’ll have access to ample resources for their defense, which is why you need the best personal injury lawyer you can get.

You might be putting off your claim because of the cost. Be aware that Florida wrongful death cases fall under a statute of limitations. Our expert team of accident injury lawyers at Dennis Hernandez is well versed in this process. We work as hard as the expensive lawyers without over-charging you.

If you do not wish to pursue legal action in court, our injury claim lawyers will help your family reach a settlement with the at-fault party. The outcome depends on specific circumstances, like the relationship between the deceased and the claimant. Wrongful death settlements can often be reached without even needing to bring the case to a Florida court. This is possible with the help of your personal injury firm.
