St. Cloud Wrongful Death Attorneys
If you are reading these words because you recently lost a loved one, please let us take a moment to offer you our condolences. Here, you can feel secure in the knowledge that we know the pain associated with a sudden death, and we know the hole that it can open up in an otherwise peaceful existence. If you are here because of a loss, it likely means that you understand the possible financial repercussions and are looking for answers. Fortunately, you have come to the right place.
Every day, thousands of accidents occur throughout Florida. Most of these accidents do not result in death, but there are a handful every day that do. When a person dies in these accidents, it is called “wrongful death,” which is the legal way of saying “this should not have happened.” In wrongful death cases, an individual or individuals loses their life directly because of the irresponsibility and carelessness of someone else. Common scenarios that result in wrongful death include:
- Car accidents related to cell phones
- Car accidents related to drunk driving
- Medical malpractice
- Poorly maintained construction equipment
- Poorly maintained roads
Obviously, the list goes on indefinitely. The point is that when a death happens out of nowhere, and when that death is linked to an automobile accident or a work-related incident, it is usually easy to see how the death could have been prevented if only a few simple steps were taken beforehand. The people who should have taken these steps are ultimately responsible for the death.
There is no way to bring a departed loved one back, and there is no way to place a monetary value on their absence. Instead of attempting to recoup your losses, a law suit against those responsible for a wrongful death is instead intended to do two specific things:
- Ensure that the party or parties who caused the incident never find themselves in a position to do anything like that again.
- Ensure that you and your family are not buried under bills as a result of the already devastating situation.
