Weston Wrongful Death Lawyers
Nothing can prepare Weston families for the untimely death of a loved one, particularly when that death was caused by the reckless, negligent, or willful misconduct of another. Surviving spouses, parents, or children may even incur financial loss, and while securing legal representation and becoming involved in a lengthy litigation process may never be a strong priority, obtaining financial relief can mitigate a slate of ensuing hardships.
If your family member or loved one has been wrongfully killed in an incident arising from negligence, contact our experienced Weston wrongful death attorneys at the Shiner Law Group to discuss your legal rights and options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Common Causes of Wrongful Death
Surviving family members and beneficiaries of the decedent’s estate can pursue a wrongful death claim against an at-fault party for injuries that could have otherwise been avoided. While hardly an exhaustive list, the wrongful death attorneys at the Shiner Law Group identify the most common causes associated with wrongful death cases:
- Vehicle accidents, including car, motorcycle, truck, plane, and boat.
- Residential and commercial premises liability cases.
- Product liability causes.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect.
- Medical malpractice.
- Alcohol or drug-related accidents.
- Firearm injuries.
The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years in the state of Florida; however, if the victim’s injuries were not immediately fatal, family members and estate beneficiaries can bring a separate personal injury legal cause of action on behalf of the decedent had he or she survived the incident of negligence. Claimants must show that the defendant’s breach of duty directly resulted in injuries sustained, causing financial loss.
As Weston families grieve for the loss of their loved one, who may have been tragically killed by another person or business, insurance companies pursue measures to reduce financial liability. Securing the legal representation of an experienced wrongful death attorney can be vital to maximizing a claim’s financial recovery potential.
