Moving forward after the unexpected death of a loved one is never easy. That is especially true if the death occurred due to the willful negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another person, business, or entity.
Filing a civil lawsuit against the party responsible for the death of your parent, spouse, grandparent, or child can be a terribly anguishing process. Nonetheless, for many survivors, it is a necessary measure.
Some grieving relatives find closure in these types of lawsuits. Others desperately need the money that a wrongful death lawsuit provides, as the decedent may have been their only source of financial support.
In the State of Florida, there is a statute on the books called "The Wrongful Death Act," which permits survivors of a decedent to pursue monetary compensation (from a negligent party) for lost support or services.
Time is of the essence in these matters, as there is a very specific and set deadline after the death for the filing of these torts. Allowing the deadline to pass will all but preclude your chances for a rightful recovery of the money owed to you and perhaps to your family members.
We therefore understand that grieving over the loss of a family member can be excruciating.
But we urge you to call The Law Offices of Brumer & Brumer in the most expeditious manner possible, so we may begin to collect and analyze the facts of your case.
We want to maximize the amount of compensation you receive, be it from a reckless hospital worker, physician, nurse, emergency medical technician, nursing facility employee, or any other type of caregiver who displayed misconduct.
The primary condition for a successful Wrongful Death action is proof that someone responded or behaved in a manner that was not consistent with the way in which a reasonably prudent person would act. Our attorneys will therefore work to build your case based on any and every piece of evidence and witness testimony available.
We must prove that the would-be defendant had a duty to care for your deceased relative, that the duty was breached, and that breach had a direct impact on the death. If you believe all of these conditions apply to your situation, please call our Miami Personal Injury Lawyers today.
We look forward to speaking with you soon.
