Eustis Wrongful Death Lawyers

Eustis, Florida is a small community just outside the Orlando and Kissimmee metro area. Although its proximity to the tourist sights of Orlando make it a popular hotel destination for travelers, perhaps the city is best known for its annual GeorgeFest. Held every year starting on the last Friday in February and running through the weekend, this festival in honor of everything George Washington has the title of being the second longest annual event in honor of the country’s first president. Festival goers have been coming to Eustis since 1902 to take part in the outdoor dining, music, fireworks, carnival rides, parade and five kilometer run.

Unfortunately, sometimes Eustis’ festive mood is disrupted by an automobile accident. When an accident happens, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced Florida personal injury attorney, who can review your case and ensure that you get fully compensated for your injuries. When a car accident involves a death, talking to the attorneys at the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A becomes even more urgent. This is because in Florida, a wrongful death claim has a strict statute of limitations – meaning if you do not file your wrongful death lawsuit within a specific amount of time after the accident, you claim will be denied and you will not receive any compensation for your loss.

Understanding Wrongful Death

For over three decades attorney James O. Cunningham has been helping families who have lost a loved one due in an automobile accident get the compensation they deserve for their loss. This is done through what is known as a wrongful death lawsuit.

A wrongful death claim allows the family members of the deceased to seek compensation from the person who caused the accident. Through a wrongful death lawsuit, these family members can seek compensation for injuries the deceased family member suffered, injuries the family members have suffered themselves due to the loss of a loved one, and such future damages as lost wages.

In Florida, typically only surviving spouses and children can file a suit. In some cases, this right to sue can include parents and siblings if it can be shown that either were dependent on the deceased for support. These qualifying surviving family members can seek compensation for such damages as:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of services
  • Loss of future income
  • Loss of consortium
  • Medical expenses
  • Past lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical disability
  • Property damage
