Wrongful Death Archives

Family awarded $12 million in wrongful death lawsuit

Last year a Florida mother was informed of the horrific news that her daughter had been brutally murdered. Once the circumstances became clear to investigators and family members, the family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the hotel property where the murder occurred. The jury that heard the case agreed with the family that the hotel could have done more to prevent the woman's death and awarded the family $12 million.

Wrongful death lawsuit filed against driver, company and Disney

Most would think that driving violations, fatigue, medical conditions and medications that would cause sleepiness would prevent someone from driving professionally. One tragic wreck in Florida is revealing that unfit drivers may remain on the road behind the wheel despite safety concerns of a driver. A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against a driver, his employer and the company, Disney, that ordered the oil he was hauling for their combined involvement in the summer accident.

Nursing home may face wrongful death lawsuits

When a Florida resident requires more medical or daily assistance than a family can offer, the family often chooses to place them in a skilled nursing facility. The decision for temporary or permanent residence in a nursing home for a loved one can be a difficult decision for a family, but families hope that patients will receive the best possible care. Sadly, multiple residents recently died under the care of a nursing home staff following Hurricane Irma. Some of the families may choose to file wrongful death lawsuits following the deaths. 

Families may seek wrongful death claims when loved ones killed

In addition to the emotional toil of losing a loved one in a car accident, surviving families may also face unexpected financial concerns. To help cope with these, a family may be able to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of their deceased relative. One family may be considering filing after a Florida woman was killed in a recent crash.

Families of fatal accident victims may file wrongful death claims

Motor vehicle accidents can take place under a variety of circumstances, but the result is often the same. Countless wrongful death claims have been filed by grieving families who lost a loved one on account of another driver's negligent actions. A recent accident in Florida claimed the life of a 49-year-old man after another vehicle reportedly ran through a stop sign.

Family could file wrongful death claim against intoxicated driver

Those who are accused of DUI typically face serious consequences if convicted. A former law enforcement officer was recently arrested in Florida after allegedly hitting five children with his vehicle while intoxicated. The family of one of the children may consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit after their son died due to the fatal injuries he received in the collision.

Wrongful death claims could help Florida families find closure

Car accidents are an unfortunate reality that Florida drivers must face each day. Some crashes only result in trivial damage, whether physical or emotional. However, in addition to property damage, others can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities. When people are killed in severe collisions, victims' families may seek reparations by filing a wrongful death claim in civil court.

Florida families may consider wrongful death claim after tragedy

No family wants to hear that their loved ones were involved in a car accident, especially when it causes fatalities. Unfortunately, two families received this devastating news after two University of Florida students were killed in a car wreck. Though no criminal charges have been filed as a result of the collision, the families may seek justice by working with an attorney to file a wrongful death claim in civil court.
