Brevard County Wrongful Death Attorney

Get Compensated for a Loved One's Death

As part of the Florida Wrongful Death Act, our state legislature expressly stated that their intent in enacting the law was to "shift the losses resulting when wrongful death occurs from the survivors of the decedent to the wrongdoer." The goal of filing such a claim is to recover comprehensive monetary damages to support your family during this difficult time and to help you move on in life.

While no amount of money will ever replace your tragic loss, you have a right to receive a settlement to offset the considerable financial expenses and to compensate you for all you have been through.

What Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Claim?

The damages which are recoverable in a claim for wrongful death in our state are listed in Florida Statutes §768.21, (2012) "Damages." They include-but are not limited to-the following:

  • Loss of support and services from the date of injury to the date of death, with interest, as well as future loss of support and services
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Mental pain and suffering from the date of injury
  • Loss of parental companionship, instruction and guidance
  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of earnings which your family could reasonably have expected to receive

While the courts in Brevard County recognize your right to claim all these damages, there is no guarantee that you will receive fair treatment in your insurance claim. It is in your best interests to retain legal representation from the outset to assist you in gathering the evidence to support your claim and to defend your personal interests throughout the process.
