Wrongful Death - There Are Options for Survivors

A wrongful death attorney helps those who have lost a loved one due to negligence. Under Florida law, there is recourse for people in these tragic situations. In order for survivors to able to collect, there has to be either a wrongful act or negligence that led to the death. If the victim would have been able to sue for damages had he or she survived, there are usually grounds for a case. Some may prefer to seek damages through trial by jury, while others may be able to settle out of court.

There are many circumstances where the assistance of a wrongful death attorney may be required. Car, truck and motorcycle accidents can have devastating consequences for families left behind. Since many of these types of accidents could have been prevented through diligence, it is important to find out what types of options are available. Several people in recent years have been killed due to problems that occur with defective bicycles or poorly-constructed roads. All of these types of cases may have the potential for a settlement that will help survivors to cope with expenses in the wake of the victim's death.

You need a wrongful death attorney with enough experience to get you the results that you need. You may not know whether you need your case to go to trial, or whether a settlement will be better. The right lawyer will guide you through everything, so you know exactly how to proceed. With a trial by jury, you have the option of allowing your peers to determine the verdict, but this option is more costly. A settlement is often easier for all parties to agree on, without the high costs associated with a full trial. You and your attorney will be able to decide on the right course of action together.

Always choose a wrongful death attorney with a good record of getting settlements and winning cases. There is so much at stake with a wrongful death case that you don't want to leave it to the inexperienced. No matter whether you decide to pursue your case in or out of court, you want to feel comfortable and confident with the results. Your attorney will know how to make the best case that will ensure you get just the results you need. Choose the right attorney for your needs, and you will have results that will bring some sort of closure.


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.
