Bradenton Wrongful Death Attorneys
When a loved one dies, it is extremely natural to look for answers. Why did this happen? Why did it happen now? Did this have to happen so soon? In many cases, these questions are unanswerable. Sometimes a person just passes away due to natural causes and no one is at fault. In other cases, though, our loved ones did not have to die so soon. In some cases the negligence of another person causes our loved ones to die prematurely. In these situations, you may be able to hold the person responsible for your loved one’s death liable. Consult with an experienced Bradenton wrongful death attorney about your options. While no amount of financial compensation can ever undo the loss you have suffered, it can still help cover your financial costs and act to deter future behavior that could lead to more unnecessary deaths. Additionally, in cases where the deceased had dependents like minor children, it is sometimes possible to obtain the financial compensation necessary to financially support these dependents.

Wrongful death cases are governed by a state statute in Florida. This law lays out who is allowed to recover in a wrongful death lawsuit. Each survivor of the deceased is allowed to recover the value of lost support and services and future loss of support and services that the deceased would have provided. A different Florida law defines survivors to include the deceased’s spouse, children, and parents. If they are partly or wholly dependent upon the deceased for support or services, any blood relative or adopted sibling can also be included.
If the deceased has a surviving husband or wife, he or she can recover for the loss of the deceased’s companionship and and protection. A spouse can also be compensated for his or her pain and suffering. Minor children can be compensated for lost parental companionship, instruction, and guidance, as well as recovering for their own pain and suffering. If there is no surviving spouse, then adult children can be compensated as well. Parents of deceased minor children also have a right to compensation, as do parents of adult children if there are no other survivors. Any survivor who covers funeral costs can be compensated for those costs. The deceased’s estate is also allowed to be financially compensated for some loses.
