Wrongful Death in Jacksonville
The wrongful death of a loved one due to another's negligence or wrong doing is truly a tragic event. In Florida, the intent of the state's wrongful death act is to shift the burden of losses sustained by the surviving family members to the "at fault" person or parties. Since the deceased cannot initiate the claim, the proceedings for a wrongful death case will differ from those in a traditional personal injury lawsuit. At Mathis & Murphy, P.A., we understand that money cannot replace the loss of a loved one but we can ensure that justice is done by securing a fair settlement to offset the financial impact to surviving family members. Reparation of damages in a wrongful death case may include:
- Value of Loss of Support & Services
- Loss of Care, Guidance & Protection
- Pain & Suffering or Mental Anguish
- Lost Earnings of the Decendent
- Medical Expenses & Funeral Costs
- Loss of Companionship or Relationship
Florida Wrongful Death Attorneys
In order for a Jacksonville court to award a wrongful death settlement, a well documented case must be built to show how the defendant's negligence or unreasonable actions caused the fatal injuries that led to the death of your loved one. From your initial consultation to a fair settlement of damages, our personal injury attorneys have the experience and compassion to work closely with you to establish the legal precedence needed for successful representation of your wrongful death case in civil court. Once a well stated lawsuit is presented, the defendant's insurance carriers may be motivated to avoid a court hearing and negotiate a fair settlement with the surviving family members.
Whether your wrongful death case is resolved by a mediated settlement or litigated in court before jury representation, you need qualified legal representation to hold the insurance carriers accountable.
