Wrongful Death

Lakeland Wrongful Death Attorneys | Auburndale Personal Injury Lawyers

A death in the family can be a terrible event.  If you believe that your loved one died as the result of the negligence or recklessness of another person, you may be able to recover compensation for their wrongful death through a wrongful death claim.

Unlike criminal charges, a wrongful death claim does not aim to punish the person responsible for the wrongful death. Wrongful death claims provide the family of the decedent with compensation for their losses.

Through a wrongful death claim, you can recover both economic and non-economic losses that you have suffered as a result of the wrongful death in your family, including:

  1. Funeral Expenses
  2. Medical Expenses
  3. Pain and Suffering
  4. Loss of Companionship
  5. Loss of Income
  6. Loss of Anticipated Earnings
  7. General Damages
  8. Loss of Inheritance
  9. Loss of Benefits

When a person dies from a wrongful death, it is up to their immediate family to file the wrongful death claim.  If your loved one has passed away anywhere in Florida, and you would like to file a wrongful death claim, please contact Allen & Abaray, P.A..  Our wrongful death attorneys will evaluate your claim for free and we will represent you on a contingent fee basis, which means you don’t pay any attorney fees unless you recover on your claim.

The action for wrongful death must be brought by the decedent's personal representative, or as many people know it, the executor of the estate. The personal representative or executor brings the claim on behalf of all the decedent's survivors who are legally entitled to recover damages. Further, the estate itself has claims for medical and funeral expenses and lost net accumulations of the person who died. The survivors who can recover are defined in the Act and may include the decedent's spouse, children, parents, and any other blood relatives who are dependent upon the person who died for their support. The damages that may be recovered are specified in the act.
