Now—who can pursue a case? According to Florida law, a wrongful death case is a civil claim, filed on behalf of a deceased loved one, “when a person’s death is caused by the wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract or warranty.” A personal representative for the victim, most likely a family member initiates the claim, which is filed on behalf of all surviving family members affected by the loss. Survivors may include the spouse, children, parents, life partners, and other blood relatives.
These cases can be complicated, which is why it’s crucial for you to work with a successful law firm with lots of experience with these cases. Lieberman Injury Law will fight vigorously for you.
