Cunningham, P.A., you receive the benefit of his 30 years of experience.

Wrongful Death and Families of Florida Fatal Accident Victims

Wrongful deaths occur in any number of ways, but the commonality is that the act resulting in the death is negligent, whether intentional or unintentional. This can mean that the death occurred because of any manner of motor vehicle accident, recreational vehicle accident, other transportation accidents, intentional criminal action (robbery, murder and assault), premises liability, workplace or construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse or defective products, equipments, drugs or medical devices.

The purpose of our civil justice system is to right the civil wrongs inflicted by one party onto another. When that wrongdoing or negligent act results in death, there is no magic that will bring a loved one back to life. What the justice system strives to do, therefore, is recover financial losses for the families of Florida fatal accident victims and to hold the wrongdoer accountable for payment of those losses.

The sudden death of a family member brings unexpected financial burdens. James O. Cunningham uses his formidable knowledge, experience and resources to help families of Florida fatal accident victims obtain a settlement or jury verdict for those financial burdens, as well as other damages to which family members are entitled under the law. He also stresses intangible losses such as what it means for your family to live without the companionship, love, guidance and support of a parent or spouse or the depth of the loss of a child.
