Wrongful Death Law

There are many different types of wrongful death lawsuits. These can originate from auto accidents, medical malpractice, premises liability, or occupational hazards to the negligence of another party. As noted, they can even originate from criminal behavior such as homicide. Compensation can be sought for various financial hardships caused by the death, but the law stipulates that it can also be sought for punitive damages, which are designed to punish the offender or offenders and to further compensate the victim. The legal professionals at the law firm of Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux of Duval County and Clay County understand the Florida wrongful death laws and will aggressively fight to build an effective case for you.

Types Of Wrongful Death Compensation

In a wrongful death case, the loss of financial support or services that the deceased family member once provided, the deceased family member’s future earning capacity, mental pain and suffering, medical or funeral expenses, loss of decedent’s companionship and protection, and lost parental companionship, instruction and guidance  are all considered  damages pursuant to Florida Law and can be compensated in a wrongful death case. The amount of compensation will depend upon the victim’s age at the time of death as well as the life expectancy and health of the person. Other factors can also come into play when determining the amount of compensation, such as what it will cost the family to replace a nonworking member of the household for services that they once performed.
