As a family that has experienced a tragic situation, it’s imperative to understand that you’re not alone in this situation.

If you’ve recently experienced the tragedy of losing a loved one as the result of another person’s negligence, there’s an experienced wrongful death attorney in your neighborhood who can help.
Determining Wrongful Death Claims
Not every accidental death correlates to a wrongful death claim, but any question about the facts surrounding the incident should be presented to our attorneys at Law Offices of McCullough & Leboff, P.A. for a complete investigation. Once the initial devastation of the loss subsides, you or your family may have questions:
Did a reckless driver cause the auto accident?
Did a manufacturer produce an accident-prone car?
Did the people in charge of safety do their job at the construction site?
Did the hospital staff adequately inform the doctor in charge?
Death doesn’t have to occur right away for a wrongful death claim to be viable. Many wrongful death cases are the result of serious injuries that eventually result in death. An experienced wrongful death lawyer can answer your questions, conduct the appropriate investigation and provide answers to the grieving family. If you have any thoughts that the death of your loved one might have been wrongfully caused, it’s time to contact a trusted attorney to assist you.
Understanding Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims in Florida
In Florida, only certain people have the right to claim damages for the loss of a loved one. The legal system relating to claim for wrongful death is very complex and can require legal filings even before a claim is made. Our lawyers will help you navigate this complex and time-consuming process so that you can focus on the important things: comforting the family in the face of a tragic loss.
Under the Florida Wrongful Death Act, section 768.21, Florida Statutes, compensation may be available for all “survivors” as a result of:
Loss of companionship and protection
Mental pain and suffering from the date of injury
Loss of parental instruction and guidance
Medical and funeral expenses
Loss of earnings
Loss of net accumulations of an estate
The best way to determine the compensation you’re entitled to will be to contact a wrongful death attorney near you. An experienced attorney will be able to help you uncover the details surrounding your claim and win the settlement you deserve for your pain and suffering.
