A West Palm Beach Personal Injury Attorney Lists The Common Causes Of Wrongful Death
If you have lost a loved one to an accident or crime, then you know in your heart that the death was wrong. But how do you know if you have a Florida wrongful death claim?
In Florida, the term "wrongful death" is used to refer to any death that is the result of a person or business acting wrongfully, negligently, recklessly, or with complete disregard for other people's safety. Examples of wrongful deaths include deaths due to any of the following situations:
- Car accidents involving a reckless driver
- Commercial truck accidents
- Florida drunk driving deaths
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Negligent security
- Defective consumer products
- Workplace accidents
West Palm Beach personal injury attorney David Glatthorn helps families of wrongful death victims to get accountability and compensation for their losses. A Florida wrongful death lawsuit is different than a criminal lawsuit in that it holds the liable party responsible for his or her actions and provides monetary compensation for a family's pain and suffering and other losses.
Money can never replace a loved one, but it can make it easier for your family to deal with the pain of the loss. Wrongful death damages can cover the loss of the loved one's income and support.
