New Port Richey Accident Lawyer – Wrongful Death Lawyers Florida
When an individual dies due to the fault of another person or entity such as a car, the survivor(s) may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the alleged perpetrator. These types of cases range from fatal accidents to medical malpractice. A wrongful death claim may be filed when a person dies as a result of the legal fault of another person.
Individuals directly affected by the loss of the deceased may be eligible for economic and non-economic compensation. Economic compensation includes loss of wages for the past and future of economic support that would otherwise be provided from the deceased, funeral and burial expenses, and the dollar value of lost household services. Non-economic forms of compensation include loss of companionship, moral support, affection, love, loss of guidance and mentorship. The type of compensation you may receive depends on your case.
When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, only individuals that are directly affected (immediate family members, life partners, financial dependents, assumed partners, and so on), must file the wrongful death claim. The directly affected members are called “proper survivors”. They are the people that are directly dealt with the unfortunate consequences of the tragic event.
