It may even seem difficult to think about a legal claim or money after the death of your loved one. Mr. Kuhl realizes that no amount of money replaces a human being. However, the medical expenses and related bills can add up and you may find yourself in need of financial support. Filing a wrongful death claim can help you hold the responsible party accountable financially and otherwise.
In the state of Florida, the person who brings the wrongful death claim is the personal representative of the estate. Those who were dependent on the deceased may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. If you personally lost a loved one to an accident caused by another person or a business, you may have a right to bring a claim forward with the help of a Naples wrongful death attorney.
The damages for wrongful death are similar to those for other personal injury cases, but also include additional expenses specifically related to these types of cases. This may include loss of support and companionship, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering. If the nature of the accident was egregious, you may also be able to claim punitive damages.
