Wrongful Death Claims And Florida Law

Wrongful death is a civil action that may be brought by the survivors of a deceased party. The Florida Wrongful Death Act specifically allows spouses, children, parents, and relatives who may have been dependent on the deceased to seek financial recovery.

The estate of the deceased may also file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek financial remedy for the losses sustained as a result of the tragic loss of a loved one.

There is a two year statute of limitations on wrongful death in Florida which means you should speak to a wrongful death law firm promptly if you believe you or your family have a wrongful death claim.

How An Attorney Can Help You Recover More Compensation For Your Injuries

Don't forfeit your legal right to compensation if you are injured in an accident that is not your fault.

If, as the result of an accident caused by another, you have incurred serious medical expenses, lost wages due to inability to work, or experienced psychological trauma or pain and suffering, you may be entitled to an award of cash damages.

But be careful, it is easy to compromise your legal right to damages, or even forfeit it entirely, through carelessness and lack of understanding. Promptly consulting with an accident attorney may save your right to compensation—at no cost or risk to you.

Some common mistakes that accident victims make—and which a simple consultation with an accident lawyer will help you avoid—include:

- Thinking an injury is "not serious enough" to be concerned about. Many injuries, such as those to the back, neck and brain, can seem mild at first while posing the risk of long-term complications. The timeline for neck and back injuries is crucial. Under Florida PIP law you must see a doctor within 14 days of your accident. Only certain doctors can certify that you have a medical emergency.

Injuries Are Loaded With Hidden Costs In All Areas Of Your Life - Hire An Attorney For Full Compensation Under The Law

A serious personal injury can cause more than just physical pain to the victim. It may financially devastate a family, due to big medical bills and lost income. The emotional pain and stress that result when a loved member suffers serious personal injury may harm the entire family as well.

If you have suffered a personal injury due to the fault of someone else, you do not have to go without financial compensation—or deal with the consequences alone. An injury attorney can help you enforce your legal right to compensatory damages. An attorney can give your family the reassurance of having a trusted, experienced advocate defending its rights—and handling all the complications thrown up by insurance companies, medical institutions, and opposing lawyers.

Common personal injuries include broken bones, burns, scarring, brain injuries, spine injuries, paralysis, amputations, and disfigurement. Personal injury may also consist of mental harm, such as emotional and mental distress, and post traumatic stress disorder, and pain and suffering.

Personal injuries caused by another can result from vehicle accidents (involving autos, motorcycles, trucks), boating accidents, accidents in the workplace, the unsafe premises of a business or individual, or medical negligence.

Documenting Motorcycle Crash Injuries For Legal Action

Motorcycle Crash Because of the way that the body is built, the most common location of an injury to the occupant of a motor vehicle involved in a collision is the cervical spine (neck).

The second most common location of an injury is the lumbar spine (lower back). The extent of these injuries can range from a minor strain/sprain that takes six weeks to recover from, to a herniated disc with nerve root involvement requiring surgical intervention.

Closed head injuries to the brain (concussion) would be the third most common injury. They have their own unique issues.

Documenting injury
To be compensable, an injury must be documented. Most often, the injury is shown by objective evidence like open wounds and/or a fracture or other orthopedic injury shown in x-ray or other radiographic images. When and how that injury is documented is often critical.


Treatment at the scene
Insurance companies aren't going to believe somebody if injuries are alleged and there is no medical documentation of that injury. Documentation begins at the scene with the medical records of paramedics. Attending paramedics will document each and every sign of injury to the victim of an accident.... ...read full post
