Below are some commonly asked questions and answers about Florida Wrongful Death Lawsuits for your assistance:
What is a wrongful death?
A Wrongful Death can occur when the actions of a person, persons or company are determined to be negligent and they cause or are determined to be the legal cause of an injury which leads to a death that otherwise was avoidable. It is important to note that Wrongful Death is not the same as Murder. Murder are generally defined as intentional acts and can also give rise to civil claim, however it would not be governed under Wrongful Death law in Florida.
Who can file a wrongful death lawsuit or claim?
Under Florida Law, the personal representative of an estate, usually named in a will or determined by a court, or the heirs of the deceased could file a wrongful death lawsuit in Florida State court for money damages.
How much does representation cost?
Upon contacting the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton, your case will be immediately reviewed by the attorneys. If representation is agreed upon, the firm will represent you on what is called a contingency basis. What this means is you and your family will not need to allocate any upfront financial resources to the prosecution of this claim. If the claim is successful our costs and fees are taken from the resulting settlement, verdict or court award.
How much is my Wrongful Death case worth?
One of the hardest jobs for a Florida Wrongful Death Attorney is determining the value of a claim. What we can tell you is Whittel & Melton lawyers will apply our experience of claims we have worked on and Florida claims historically that we know of to ascertain what is a reasonable settlement zone and what we would ask a jury for. Those values are often different, but what we promise you is that will work hard to make sure that any attempt by an Insurance company to offer early low amounts will be met with real world advice.
