Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death Attorney
Why You Need a Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death Lawyer
Under the law, someone who is negligent or who breaches his legal obligation to others must be held accountable for all financial and non-economic losses his intentional or negligent behavior causes. Usually, it is the injured victim who pursues a personal injury claim against the person or entity responsible for causing injuries.
When the injuries are fatal, however, the injured victim is not there to pursue a claim on his own behalf. Rather than allowing the wrongdoer to get off scot-free, the laws in Florida allow close family members such as spouses, children or parents of the deceased to make a wrongful death claim.
It is up to you, however, to actually take legal action if your loved one has died. You need to pursue the wrongful death claim, prove that the defendant did something wrong, and show that the negligent or intentional behavior was the direct cause of death. You also need to prove the extent of your losses.
It can be complicated to understand how to file a wrongful death lawsuit and even more difficult to learn the rules of evidence and build a strong case that will entitle you to get full and fair compensation for wrongful death. You may also face lots of pressure from the insurance company representing the responsible defendant to settle your case.
To negotiate successfully with the insurer, to gather the right evidence and to succeed at getting the money you deserve, whether in court or through a settlement, you need the help of a Fort Lauderdale wrongful death attorney who knows the ins-and-outs of Florida law.
