Wrongful Death Law
There are many different types of wrongful death lawsuits. These can originate from auto accidents, from medical malpractice, from occupational hazards, or simply from the negligence of another party. As noted, they can even originate from criminal behavior such as homicide. Compensation can be sought for various financial hardships caused by the death, but the law stipulates that it can also be sought for punitive damages, which are designed to punish the offender or offenders and to further compensate the victim. The legal professionals at the law firm of Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux, PA of Clay County understand the Florida wrongful death laws and will aggressively fight to build an effective case for you.
Types of Wrongful Death Compensation
In a wrongful death case, the loss of financial support that the deceased family member once provided as well as his or her future earning capacity, the loss of potential inheritance, and the funeral and burial expenses are all considered “pecuniary injuries” and can be compensated in a wrongful death case. The amount of compensation will depend upon the victim’s age at the time of death as well as the life expectancy and health of the person. Other factors can also come into play when determining the amount of compensation, such as what it will cost the family to replace a non-working member of the household for services that she/he once performed. The law firm of Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux, PA of Clay County recognizes the devastation that a wrongful death can cause to a family, both emotional and financial.
