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.

If you live in Rockledge and have recently lost a loved one in a wrongful death circumstances, then you have the right, under Florida Law, to seek restitution for damages. Obviously, nothing will compensate for the life taken from you. Instead, by taking the responsible party or parties to court, you can gain financial peace of mind in this troubling time. While this might seem like an odd step at first, consider the following sorts of monetary demands that are likely to result as a result of losing a loved one to wrongful death:

  • Medical bills related to the loved one’s hospitalization and care.
  • Funeral expenses.
  • Property damage costs (especially relevant if the wrongful death occurred due to an automobile accident).
  • Wage loss (this can be due to both your need to miss work for grieving purposes and, if the deceased was employed, from the loss of a primary wage earner).
