Englewood Wrongful<br> Death Lawyers

While it's a wonderful place to live, those in Englewood who lose a loved one unexpectedly often have difficulty finding any kind of enjoyment in their life. And when it's an accidental death that is caused by negligence, the pain is even more profound. Nothing can bring your loved one back or fill the void left behind by their death, but filing an Englewood wrongful death claim can get you the compensation you are owed. We stand up and fight for your rights, getting you justice for your loss so you can heal and move on.

Can You Seek Compensation?

Under Florida law, those who are blood relatives of a person who has died due to negligence will have the ability to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This includes:

  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Siblings who are dependent upon the deceased

However, in order to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Englewood, you have to show that the person who caused the death of your loved one acted in a way that was negligent or reckless. This can include a wide range of different things such as:

  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to maintain a property safely
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
  • And more

Essentially, you must show that the other person's actions were what any reasonable person would consider to be negligent or reckless. Your attorney can help you review the specifics of your case and determine if this is true or not. Remember, however, that you only have 2 years in which to file a claim of wrongful death. Waiting beyond that will mean that you have no legal right to do so.

What Damages May Be Awarded?

The specific settlement amount your receive is impossible to estimate online since every case is different. A lot of different factors will go into a fair settlement, and your attorney will work to get you the best settlement possible. Potential damages that may be awarded include the following:

  • Funeral costs related to the accident and the deceased
  • Loss of income that would have been present had the deceased been alive
  • Future potential income over a period of years
  • Loss of benefits such as pension, retirement funds, and medical benefits
  • Loss of parental guidance for surviving children
  • Loss of companionship for the families
  • Punitive damages
  • Compensation for pain and suffering

Each of these factors will be considered, and our lawyers work with economic professionals to create detailed estimations as to what you're really owed and what kind of financial impact the loss of a loved one will have on you, your family, and your recovery.

Fighting The Big Guys

Often, those who lose a loved one and who are filing a wrongful death lawsuit are doing so against an insurance company or big corporation. These big organizations will do all they can to fight against paying a dime.

They'll often use a variety of different tactics ranging from stalling to forcing you through legal paperwork to outright refusal to pay out, all in an effort to avoid having to pay. Our legal team stands up to these big companies and gets you the compensation that you deserve, preventing their bullying techniques and showing them that you're serious.

What Does It Cost You?

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit is something that many are hesitant to do simply because they're already struggling financially and emotionally. But you shouldn't have to pay a penny to get representation. Our Englewood wrongful death attorney will provide you with representation, and will only charge you a percentage of your settlement. You pay nothing out of pocket.

The loss of your loved one is already hard enough to get through. You shouldn’t have to shoulder a huge financial burden or feel like you're being judged for your choice to seek restitution. Compensation can help you find financial stability and learn to move on to some degree after a tragedy. We're here and ready to fight for you and your loss.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
