Panama City Wrongful Death Attorney

Do I have grounds for a wrongful death claim?

Some fatal accidents are unavoidable, but a large percentage of those which occur every year ought to have been prevented. If your family has lost a loved one in a tragic car accident or other type of incident, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. A wrongful death claim is very similar to a personal injury claim which is filed on behalf of the deceased, and if your loved one would have had grounds to file a claim, you are most likely entitled to do so.

The key to recovering damages for wrongful death is to prove that another person is at fault for causing the fatal accident. This can occur under nearly any circumstances, ranging from a truck accident caused by a driver who was fatigued or under the influence of alcohol, to a slip and fall accident which the property owner could have prevented by installing better lighting in a staircase. If you believe that another person is responsible for your tragic loss, contact us at Seaton Law Offices, P.A. to discuss the accident and determine whether you have grounds for a claim.

What damages are recoverable in a wrongful death action?

Under the provisions of the Florida Wrongful Death Act, you have a right to demand comprehensive financial compensation for all your losses. The stated intent of the law is to shift the economic burdens of the accident away from your family and onto the party who is at fault.

The damages which are recoverable in such an action include compensation for medical care and funeral expenses, as well as for the income contributions which you family could have expected to receive since the date of injury and into the future. Additionally, you can claim non-economic damages for loss of companionship and mental pain and suffering.

There is no guarantee that you will receive any amount without a fight, but we are ready to defend your right to a fair settlement or jury verdict. Call our Panama City wrongful death attorney today.
