When death bereaves a family, it is devastating. In addition to the emotional pain a death causes, however, such an event also causes severe financial problems. A family may lose the future earnings of a family member, they may lose the benefits of a pension or retirement fund or may even lose a possible future inheritance. In addition to all these losses, a family often has to consider the cost of a funeral or memorial and any final medical bills. Any Hollywood accidental death attorney has seen many instances of families financially devastated by the unexpected loss of a loved one.
Although families are at first devastated by the loss of a person and by the pain of losing a loved one, financial considerations must eventually be considered as well. When a death is caused by negligence or by a wrongful death, the pain of the loss can be even more overwhelming. Feelings of loss, anger, and betrayal are common. At this time of turmoil, families need to turn to Florida attorneys — such as the professional legal team at Flaxman Law Group. Families may qualify to receive damages that can help them recover. Equally importantly, Flaxman Law Group can file a wrongful death claim against a wrongdoer to ensure that other innocent families do not suffer.How Wrongful Death Laws in South Florida May Impact You
Accidental death laws exist in all 50 states. While these laws vary from state to state, they generally allow a decedent's beneficiaries to file a wrongful death suit. Deaths caused by drunk driving, defective or dangerous products, unsound structures or buildings, accidents, or medical malpractice may all lead to wrongful death claims. Laws allow beneficiaries to contact an accidental death lawyer in Hollywood or their communities to recover damages that cover the lost income and benefits of the deceased, the costs associated with the death and the pain associated with the loss. In some cases, families may also seek punitive damages against a wrongdoer. These are intended to deter wrongdoers from being negligent or willfully harmful in the future.
