Helping Families Get Compensation For A Loved One’s Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a preventable death. That’s what makes the sudden loss so hard to bear. Someone’s carelessness or reckless actions took your loved one’s life prematurely and took them away from you.
At The Law Offices of Gonzalez & Associates, you have our sympathy and the full resources of our law firm. We help grieving families hold the negligent parties accountable through a lawsuit for wrongful death damages. No amount of money can make up for the loss, but a death creates financial hardships and other tangible losses.
We have brought successful wrongful death actions across Florida. To explore your legal remedies with a free consultation, call us today at 866-626-4257.
Understanding Wrongful Death
A wrongful death lawsuit is a measure of justice. It is a civil suit, independent of any criminal proceedings. The lawsuit is filed on behalf of the surviving family members – the spouse, children or parents of the deceased. In Florida, the action must be filed within two years of the death.
The lawsuit is not about putting a dollar value on a person’s life. Rather, it reflects the financial burdens and personal losses of the survivors. Damages in a wrongful death case may include:
- Hospital bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Replacement of the person’s projected earnings
- Loss of a spouse’s companionship and protection
- Loss of a parent’s guidance and instruction
- Mental pain and suffering
We have handled wrongful death suits arising from auto collisions and trucking accidents, from motorcycle crashes and pedestrian accidents, and from other personal injury tragedies, such as swimming pool drownings or fatal falls. Our legal team is committed to making sure that families are fairly compensated for the devastation in their lives. While most cases are resolved through a negotiated settlement, we are prepared to go to a jury trial, if necessary, to fight for justice.
