Whether Or Not To Pursue a Fatal Accident Case

Retaining an experienced lawyer after a loved one has been in a fatal accident can help give you justice and peace of mind after tragically losing a loved one. It is never easy to lose a family member, no matter what the circumstances. One of the worst things about losing a loved one is when it occurs because of an accident. While a suit won't bring back your loved one, you can feel confident that the person or persons responsible are held liable. A judgment will ensure that the defendant is required to compensate you for a certain amount. This will help you with expenses, and give you peace of mind that something has been done about it.

Under Florida law, the appointed representative of an estate must be the one to file a suit. The attorney will guide you through the whole process, so you don't need to worry. There are several good reasons to pursue damages. Loss of companionship is a major reason for collecting damages. Although it is hard to measure the value of one's life, survivors often feel robbed and cheated out of many years with their loved one. A settlement can help bring closure to grieving family members whose lives have been shattered by a tragic death. Sometimes, this gives survivors more of an ability to move on.

A attorney with the experience to pursue a fatal accident can also collect damages for financial damage that the death may have caused. Many families will face a major, or even catastrophic, loss of income. Life insurance policies may not be sufficient to make up for the lost income. Many people involved in fatal accidents accumulate a lot of medical bills before they die. Because many accident victims end up in ICU, possibly with life support, these bills can be very high. Funeral expenses can also leave families in debt, especially if there is no life insurance policy. A settlement from a lawsuit can help families meet some of these very large expenses.

Your lawyer will consult with you to determine a good course of action. Some may benefit most from a settlement, while others will need to consider going through a trial. Your wrongful death attorney has the right experience to make sure that you can pursue the action best for your situation. Don't let losing a loved one completely devastate yours and your family's future. The right attorney will make sure that you can continue to go on with your life after a tragedy.


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.
