From auto accidents and motorcycle accidents, to job injuries and hazardous conditions that exist on a property, there are all types of causes for wrongful death. Sadly and tragically, injuries sometimes lead to death; this is a fact of life. These kinds of South Florida injury cases are special and require an extreme amount of care to process. No stone can be left unturned, and every possible cause and contributor must be identified.

He gives them comfort and hope at a difficult time, and the assurance that their financial future is not being left to chance.

When pursuing a wrongful death claim, most often the family is seeking monetary compensation and support following a criminal trial. This can include loss of income from the deceased, medical and funeral expenses incurred, or a “loss of consortium”– the pain, suffering, and loss of companionship or parental guidance.
Understanding Your Wrongful Death Case
There are seven categories under which the family or personal representative of the family may seek compensation. “Pecuniary,” or financial injury is the major measure of loss that is determined by the courts. The loss of support, services, potential inheritance, and medical and funeral expenses are all also included within pecuniary income loss. This is the most prevalent and successfully compensated part of wrongful death cases in South Florida. If your loved one’s death was particularly violent, the case may also include the pursuit of punitive damages, which will be additional damages imposed on the defendant to deter and prevent future similar behavior.
When we experience the loss of a loved one, it can feel earth shattering. It is especially traumatizing when that loss comes unexpectedly. There will be a myriad of factors to cope with, internally and externally. The shock of your loss, the grieving process, and the arrangements to prepare for burial are just some of the many burdens and tasks to face when the loss of a loved one occurs. There can be so many things to think about and take care of, that monetary compensation should hardly be one of them.
If the loss of your loved one is due to the negligence, misconduct, or intentional behavior of another person, you may qualify for a wrongful death claim. With the help of Lieberman Injury Law attorneys, your claim can be processed within the legal framework and most successfully. With dedication, empathy, and the dynamic knowledge to know how to navigate your particular claim, our personal injury lawyers can guide your case in ways that only a veteran team of South Florida attorneys knows how to do.
