Wrongful Death


Seeking Justice After the Tragic Loss of a Loved One: Florida Wrongful Death Law

 

Losing a beloved family member is an incredibly painful and challenging experience. When their death is the result of someone else's wrongful actions or negligence, it can be even more devastating. In such difficult times, you may have a legal right to seek justice and compensation for your loss with the assistance of a skilled wrongful death lawyer in Florida.

 

At QBM LEGAL, we understand the immense emotional toll caused by the untimely death of a family member due to another person's negligence. Our compassionate and experienced team is here to guide you through this trying process and determine if you have a valid wrongful death case.

 

If it is determined that you have a viable claim, we will represent you on a contingency basis. This means that you do not need to worry about legal fees unless we successfully recover compensation for your losses.

 

Florida law recognizes certain family members as eligible parties to bring forth a wrongful death suit. The Florida Wrongful Death Act mandates that the personal representative of the deceased person's estate files the lawsuit for the benefit of the decedent's survivors. The following family members could potentially recover damages through a wrongful death claim:

 

  • Spouse

  • Children

  • Parents

  • Blood relatives or adoptive siblings who were dependent on the decedent

  • Children born out of wedlock to a mother

  • Children born out of wedlock to a father who had recognized responsibility for the child

 

The responsibility of bringing the claim and recovering damages for these parties lies with the personal representative. Often, the deceased's last will and testament, or the court handling their estate administration, will determine who fulfills this role.

 

It's essential to note that even if you were not financially dependent on the decedent, you may still be eligible to receive damages. For instance, if your family member cared for you, and you now need to hire someone to take their place, you might qualify for compensation for this loss.

Our compassionate and experienced team is here to guide you through this trying process and determine if you have a valid wrongful death case.
