Wrongful Death Archives

Dangerous driving leads to fatal pedestrian accident at bus stop

Public transportation provides a useful and necessary service for countless people throughout the state of Florida.

While public transportation can be convenient and efficient, it does require riders to exercise some patience as they wait for coming rides.

Statute of limitations can toll wrongful death claim

After a fatal accident or incident, it can be a challenge for a Florida family to say goodbye to their deceased loved one and begin to move forward with their lives. They may not wish to linger on the facts and issues surrounding the death, so that they may find the time to heal from their suffering. However, as individuals work toward finding peace after the death of a loved one at the hands of a negligent party, the time during which they may pursue a wrongful death claim begins to toll.

Does Florida have a wrongful death statute?

In a word, yes. The Florida legislature has enacted a wrongful death statute that is codified in the state's laws.

This post is a general overview of this important personal injury law but it is not legal advice.

Wrongful death lawsuits vindicate family members' rights

When a victim perishes at the hands of a negligent party in an automobile accident, premises liability incident, or other event, the burden of meeting the victim's accident-related costs will fall on their family to pay. In addition, the family has lost the support and companionship of the victim, and may face severe economic hardship if the victim was a breadwinner. To address these injustices, Florida law allows family members of a deceased victim to bring a wrongful death claim against a party whose negligence or wrongful act caused the death.

Fatal truck accident kills SUV driver who had green light

In Florida and throughout the United States, there's a tacit understanding between those who share the road that the traffic signs will be adhered to for the safety of everyone.

Not only does this type of accident cause the loss of a loved one for the family left behind, but also it could lead to a multitude of problems that can only be solved by seeking compensation in a legal filing.
