The death of a loved one caused by someone’s negligence or recklessness is a tragic, frustrating and painful experience. No amount of compensation can undo the loss that has befallen your family, but a compensation award can help you pay for your loved one’s end-of-life expenses and provide financial security for you and your family members.

To find out if you are entitled to compensation, please call our experienced Boynton Beach wrongful death lawyers today. Our experienced injury attorney can help compile evidence on your behalf and ensure you put forth the strongest claim possible.

Potential Damages

In Florida, certain survivors and dependents of the deceased may seek compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one. Spouses and children are typically the survivors who file wrongful death claims, though in certain cases, an adopted child or another family member who was dependent on the deceased may be eligible to file a claim for compensation.

Depending on who is filing the claim, damages may be awarded based on one or more of the following elements of wrongful death:

  • Loss of financial contributions
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Lost parental guidance and companionship
  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages, in certain cases

Punitive damages may be awarded in cases in which the wrongful death was intentional, or in which the person who caused the death was acting recklessly. Punitive damages are meant to punish the responsible person and to deter other people from behaving in the same way.

Filing a Claim

A wrongful death case is a civil action stemming from the death of a loved one. In these cases, the person’s death may have been caused by someone’s negligence or recklessness, or it may have been caused intentionally. Your claim is a means of pursuing compensation for the lost support and services of your loved one, and for the anguish and suffering the wrongful death has caused you.

Our experienced lawyers can help you determine who is at fault in your wrongful death claim. Lawsuits can be brought against many types of parties, such as:

  • Individuals
  • Companies
  • Corporations
  • Government agencies
