Miami WRongful Death Lawyer

The unexpected death of a loved one is a devastating event that can shatter your day-to-day existence. On top of the grief that you must be feeling, pursuing legal action can be daunting. You have end-of-life expenses to consider and securing your family's finances in an uncertain future.

If you believe that your loved one's death resulted from negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation. Of course, the legal framework surrounding the situation that led to your loved one's death will determine exactly what kind of losses you will be able to recuperate. Even if your case seems clear-cut, insurance companies will always exhaust resources to minimize your settlement. Don't let this discourage you. You will have a distinct advantage when negotiating a fair settlement with a team of experienced wrongful death lawyers, such as the Ward Law Group.

Common Types of Wrongful Death Claims that We Settle

90% of all lawsuits involving medical malpractice fall under the category of wrongful death or permanent disability. In 2006, the Institute of Medicine reported that prescription errors were the most common cause of medical malpractice. A prescription error can involve administering the wrong medication, an incorrect or missed dosage, or the wrong delivery route (e.g., the oral administration of a topical medication).

Of course, medical malpractice is just one example of what can go wrong. The Ward Law Group also handles the following wrongful death cases (plus more):

Defective Products: The manufacturer can be sued if a loved one dies because of a defective product. Product liability is very important to manufacturers, as they extensively test their products to ensure safety.

Work-Related Accidents: High-risk occupations such as construction jobs have much higher occurrences of workplace fatalities. That being said, wrongful death may occur at the office or even outside of work if the employer puts the employee into a dangerous circumstance.

Car Accidents: Car accidents are the most common cause of wrongful deaths in the United States. This is due to a combination of road congestion and distracted driving. The staggering majority of car accident fatalities are the result of negligence in one way or another. This wrongdoing can result from speeding, reckless or inattentive driving, driving while under the influence, etc.

Types of Wrongful Death Compensation

The compensation in a wrongful death claim often depends on who is filing the lawsuit. Typically, survivors are legally entitled to a wider degree of recovery for damages than beneficiaries.

If you believe that the death of your loved one entitles you to legal compensation, then you should meet with a wrongful death lawyer immediately. You may have the right to recover lost wages, profits, and benefits that your loved one would have earned if he or she had survived the accident. Additionally, you may be entitled to remuneration for the medical and funeral expenses of your loved one. And, depending upon the nature of your case, you may qualify for loss of consortium, a special kind of compensation that considers the irrecoverable loss of a family relationship.

If you meet the legal definition of a survivor (spouse, son, father, brother, etc.), the damages available will depend upon your relationship with the deceased.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After a Wrongful Death

Building a successful case will depend on the circumstances that led to your loved one's passing. You should contact a wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible, as some states have deadlines limiting the time for claimants to file a case. The sooner you connect with a team of attorneys, the better your chances of securing a fair settlement.

Your lawyer will handle all communication between you and your insurance company until an acceptable outcome is achieved. During this time, keep your paperwork detailing all expenses, such as medical costs, associated with your loved one's death.

If you can act from the scene, your attorney may be able to send out investigators to collect photographic evidence, police reports, and witness statements. This is also an important time to assess any property damages that resulted from the accident.

Your attorney will also need to establish any income your loved one would have earned had he or she survived the ordeal. Again, keeping this information and any receipts to submit to your insurance company is important. This will help your attorney mount a case against the offending party and improve your chances of securing a settlement.
