Venice Wrongful<br> Death Lawyers

Venice was named one of the Happiest Coastal Cities in the nation by "Coastal Living". But that happiness can be destroyed when you lose a loved one. And if that loved one's death was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of someone else, it makes things even more difficult to deal with.

Our team can help you during this difficult time by filing a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf. This can get you the money needed to stabilize your life as you grieve. If you've lost a loved one because of someone else, we will make them pay and get you and your loved one justice.

Seeking Compensation 
Under Florida law

Those who have lost a loved one through the negligence or recklessness of someone else could seek compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit can help in a number of ways including:

  • Bringing closure and a sense of justice after an accident
  • Compensating families for the loss of companionship of their loved one
  • Providing funds to help with the cost of medical care or funeral expenses
  • Helping families dependent on the loved one maintain their financial health

While it won't bring back your loved one, seeking compensation is something that can help the family move on and live the life that the deceased would want them to live. Not having to worry about paying a bill as you mourn means that you're better able to heal emotionally.

Do You Have The Right To Compensation?

Negligence and recklessness that lead to accidents can mean a lot of different things. In a wrongful death lawsuit, several different things may be used to show fault and that you're owed compensation. These include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
  • Failure to maintain a property for safety
  • Violation of safety regulations or laws
  • Violation of traffic laws
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • And more

Essentially, if it's shown that the other party acted in a way that any reasonable person would recognize as being negligent or reckless, you likely have the grounds to seek compensation. Remember that the other side will often use shady tactics or pressure to try to stop you from getting what you're really owed. Our Venice wrongful death attorney understands the pain and frustration you're feeling, and we will stand up to them and get you what you deserve.

What Damages Can You Receive?

Families who have lost a loved one can seek damages for a number of things. Your attorney will work with you to determine what a fair settlement is, but some of the following will likely be included:

  • Medical bills related to the accident
  • Funeral costs for the deceased
  • Companionship for spouses and children
  • Parental guidance of children
  • Future potential financial contributions that are lost due to the death

Each of these points will be compensated in a fair settlement. Our team not only works to get you a settlement that helps with current, existing bills associated with the accident, but will consult with an economic professional to determine what kind of long-term impact the loss of your loved one will have. Then, we structure a settlement accordingly and don't back down until we get you what you're owed.

Losing your loved one is hard enough. You shouldn't have to struggle financially in their absence when their presence would have helped maintain your standard of living. We fight to ensure that you don't have to.

Who Can File A Claim?

Family members are the only ones who are allowed to file a claim for wrongful death. This includes:

  • Children
  • Spouses
  • Parents
  • Siblings who are dependent upon the deceased in some way

Blood relatives, as well as adoptive relatives dependent financially or for services from the deceased, can file a claim for wrongful death. However, it's important to remember that under Florida law you only have two years from the time of death to do so. Waiting beyond that will mean that you have little chance of receiving compensation. Our lawyers know that this time can be difficult, and that's why we take the fight to whoever is responsible to make them pay.

We'll get you what you deserve so you can pick up the pieces without worrying about your finances.

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.
