If someone else’s unreasonable act, careless behavior or other form of negligence caused your loved one’s death, you have an obligation to protect the legal rights of the deceased. No one ever expects to face the sudden loss of a spouse, child or parent. But, when it happens, it’s important to take timely actions and have one of our wrongful death lawyers explain your options for seeking compensation for damages. For example, in Florida, a spouse is entitled to compensation for the loss of support, love, companionship and the routine services of the deceased. Our wrongful death attorneys can calculate the accurate dollar amount to use for an insurance settlement based on variables such as the joint life expectancy of the couple.
Another example of wrongful death compensation applies to any minor children of a deceased victim in Florida. Being classified as a minor can mean a new-born to a young person in his or her early twenties. Under-age children of a wrongful death victim are usually entitled to recover for the loss of guidance, the loss of affection, financial support and cost of the routine services provided by the deceased parent. In both wrongful death and personal injury cases, the law allows for compensation based on the total dollar amount of the loss to each individual survivor. The estate of the victim also has the right to seek compensation for the recovery of the loss of wealth that would have accumulated in the deceased’s prospective estate had the wrongful death not intervened.
