Pompano Beach Wrongful Death Lawyers
Losing a loved one can be a difficult and trying experience for a Pompano Beach family and made even more devastating when the death resulted from the negligent, reckless, or willful misconduct of another. Financial recovery may never wholly remedy a grieving family or rectify a wrongful death, but it can extenuate the physical, emotional, and financial hardships caused by the victim’s absence.
At the Shiner Law Group, our award-winning wrongful death attorneys understand the turmoil often associated with these cases, so we guide our clients through their bereavement period by providing knowledge of Florida’s wrongful death claims process, engaging in effective client communication, facilitating insurance negotiations, employing innovative litigation strategies, and pursuing persuasive advocacy to dissuade future negligible activity. With over 15 years’ experience representing wrongful death victims and their families in Pompano Beach, we treat our clients with the care, attention, and compassion they deserve.
If your loved one has been wrongfully killed due to the negligence of another individual, business, or entity, contact our experienced Pompano Beach wrongful death attorneys to discuss your legal rights and options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Recovering Damages in a Florida Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Claimants can pursue a wrongful death legal cause of action against an at-fault party when negligible activity directly resulted in the victim’s death, causing financial loss. Damages can be recovered by surviving family members and beneficiaries of the estate; however, the types and amount of financial compensation available to survivors tends to be greater than damages recoverable by the estate. If the victim’s injuries were not immediately fatal, a separate survivorship action can be pursued on behalf of the victim had he or she survived the negligible incident.
The statute of limitations for bringing a wrongful death legal cause of action against an at-fault party is two years within the state of Florida, which makes legal representation by an experienced attorney who understands the underlying causes of personal injury imperative to recovering financial compensation.
The wrongful death attorneys at the Shiner Law Group have a results-driven approach to litigating across the full spectrum of incidents arising from negligence, including, but not limited to, vehicle accidents, premises liability cases, product liability cases, alcohol or drug-related accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect, firearm injuries, and manslaughter. While hardly an exhaustive list, we provide some common examples of damages most sought after by survivors in a wrongful death lawsuit:
- Pain and suffering.
- Lost future income and benefits.
- Lost protection, companionship, instruction, or services.
- Burial and funeral-related expenses.
- Medical expenses.
Much of the legal proceedings involved in a wrongful death case take place outside of the courtroom where extensive documentation is meticulously researched and crafted to include the critical elements that determine whether a lawsuit is dismissed or significantly weakened. Claimants can obtain a significant advantage with respect to recovering financial compensation by seeking the legal counsel of an experienced wrongful death attorney.
How A Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help
Insurance companies are motivated by profits when they pursue defensive measures designed to reduce financial liability and damage a wrongful death victim’s claim. At the Shiner Law Group, we have a demonstrated record of overcoming these tactics and have recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts, because we aggressively pursue the best results for our clients.
While we make every effort to negotiate a fair settlement outside of court to avoid costly litigation fees, we are equally prepared to take national insurance chains and their policyholders to trial to ensure your legal and financial interests are protected.
