Daytona Beach Wrongful Death Attorneys

A wrongful death can devastate a family emotionally and financially. Along with the grief from the unexpected sudden loss, the family is immediately faced with the financial hardship of medical bills and burial costs. The future may hold a loss of income to the family. It is overwhelming and can result in a feeling of helplessness. James O. Cunningham knows this well because he is an attorney for wrongful death claims in Daytona Beach and Central Florida. He has compassionately represented families for over 35 years.

If the death of your loved one was the result of misconduct or negligence on the part of another person, group or entity, your family may have a wrongful death claim under the Florida Wrongful Death Act. This is a separate legal action from criminal actions that are prosecuted by the state. The courts understand that money cannot ever replace the life of a family member, but the pursuit of a claim for financial compensation is the civil legal system’s recourse for justice. A successful wrongful death settlement or verdict helps the family recover financial losses and serves as a way to punish the defendant(s) for the negligent action.

What Damages Are Recoverable Due to a Wrongful Death?

A knowledgeable Volusia County attorney for wrongful death will be able to determine who in your family is eligible to make a claim for damages and what damages are compensable. These damages, in brief, may include the following:

  • The value of lost support and services.
  • The future loss of support and services.
  • The loss of the decedent’s companionship and protection.
  • Mental pain and suffering.
  • The loss of parental companionship, instruction and guidance.
  • Medical or funeral expenses.
  • Loss of earnings of the deceased from the date of injury to the date of death.
  • Loss of the prospective net accumulations of an estate.
