Wrongful Death

Boca Raton Wrongful Death Lawyers

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a difficult situation for anyone, but discovering their death was caused by negligence and wrongdoing can make that difficult time much harder to process.

Wrongful death is defined as a situation where a person died due to the negligence of another. This can be a caretaker, doctor, medical professional or even manufacturing or automobile companies. The most common wrongful death cases include:

  • Hospital Negligence: When a patient is admitted into a hospital or emergency room, it becomes the responsibilities of the nurses, doctors and staff on hand to treat them with the highest standard of care. These environments can be hectic though, and sometimes a nurse may give the wrong treatment, medication or procedure. Many wrongful death claims also occur after surgery, when a surgeon fails to perform a surgery correctly and in turn, the patient dies. Other forms of hospital negligence include anesthesia malpractice, discharging a patient before they are ready and misdiagnosis.
  • Car Accidents: Car accidents are generally a personal injury case, but when a victim dies as a result of a crash, it becomes a wrongful death case. An experienced wrongful death attorney will help determine the cause of the death, which can include a defect in the manufacturing (for example, the breaks failed to work) where the auto company would be to blame, or the other driver, who could be held liable if they were under the influence or acting in a negligent manner.

    As you mourn the loss of your loved one, it’s important to get the right attorney on your side to fight your legal battles. Immediate family of the deceased can expect to receive compensation for their loss, including payments for the loss of income of the deceased, medical costs and funeral costs. Receiving this compensation can be extremely beneficial for the grieving family and help them overcome financial burdens so they can focus on their grief and mourning.
