Melbourne Wrongful Death Lawyers

Attempting to grapple with the death of a loved one is one of the most challenging things that we as people can find ourselves doing. Difficult enough when the death occurs after a long and fruitful life, the process can become almost unbearable if the death occurs suddenly, shockingly, and due to someone else’s negligence and irresponsibility. In these terrible circumstances there are very few things that will make the grieving process any less difficult than it already is. Individuals who suffer from the loss of a loved one due to wrongful death often experience a mourning period that can last months and even years. During this time, a grieving individual may find themselves struggling to complete tasks that were once routine and second nature. The specter of death is heavy and crawling out from underneath it is no easy task.

A small consolation in this time of despair is that you, as the primary sufferer in the death of a loved one, can very possibly receive compensation for your sudden loss. Although it will hardly make up for the fact that someone irreplaceable in your life has been taken away, a suit that leads to financial restitution frequently enables those most affected by the tragedy to focus on the mourning and recovery process by lifting the new monetary concerns and obligations that begin to appear with alarming regularity.

Due to the complexity of the legal system and the rigorousness with which judges and juries approach each and every wrongful death case, it fast becomes overwhelming for any individual to try and handle the intricacies of the Florida court system on their own. Because of this, and with a desire to help as many believed families as possible, the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A have been representing the families of wrongful death victims for over 40 years. The superior knowledge of James O. Cunningham and his legal team has enabled scores of families across the state to go through the healing process with less difficulty and to emerge on the other side without the crippling financial burdens faced by so many dealing with similar issues.
