Orlando Wrongful Death Lawyer
Losing A Loved One is Never Easy – Especially When Their Death was Preventable
A wrongful death claim exists when a person dies as a result of the legal fault of another person. When someone dies due to the fault of another person or entity, the survivors may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, the manufacture of a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as wrongful deaths.

Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed by family members or beneficiaries of the decedent. In general, the amount of the monetary damages awarded in such claims depends upon a number of factors including the relationship between the survivor and the deceased; the amount of the deceased’s net income; the replacement value of the deceased’s services; and the life expectancy of all parties. In some cases, punitive damages are imposed to further punish the offending party.
