Rockledge Wrongful Death Lawyers
When we think about it, most of us anticipate the death of our loved ones to happen sometime in the distant future, after a long and fulfilling life. Even if we know the end is near, we anticipate time enough to say goodbye and celebrate their last few days, weeks, or months together. This is how we expect it to happen, but life has a way of defying our expectations, and every day thousands of people die suddenly and without warning. Many of these accidents are preventable circumstances that result from the negligence of other individuals and leave irreversible marks on the lives of closest to the deceased. The American legal system has designated the term “Wrongful Death” to cases such as this, indicating the degree to which the circumstances should not have happened.
