How Wrongful Death Case Compensation in Florida Works
There are many factors about a wrongful death case that, if you haven’t had to bring a claim before, you likely are not aware of. When you seek compensation, you are essentially telling the insurance company of the liable party in the car accident that they need to compensate you.
You will get two forms of compensation:
- Wrongful death damages
- Pain and suffering damages
The wrongful death damages are the things you are likely going to notice on paper right away. You will be able to see in the bank the lack of income from this loved one, which might greatly impact how you live your life. You will also likely see bills being mailed to your house from the hospital visit they had to go to after the car crash. These are all easily calculated and compiling these numbers is a simple matter of collecting the records of how much the accident cost monetarily and how much money your loved one would have been providing through their income.
When you think about compensation for pain and suffering, it can be more difficult to come up with a number, since it is essentially objective. Based on the experience your loved one had during and after the car accident, the compensation award will reflect that.
You may be wondering how you can immediately get started on your case and where to bring what documents. An attorney will guide you through the process. They will also let you know if you are the designated person to bring this claim on behalf of your loved one.
You may be able to bring the claim if you are:
- the spouse of the victim;
- the child of the victim, if they were not married;
- or, the parent of the victim if they did not have a spouse or children.
Car Accidents Leading to Wrongful Death
Car accidents can be traumatic to those who survive and catastrophic to those who do not. It is often a matter of one mistake being made that can make the difference between a near hit and a fatal collision. We want to hold the liable party responsible for their error that caused you to lose your loved one.
You are often going to find in a wrongful death case that your loved one had medical bills from attempts to save their life. You deserve compensation to help with this cost. Other costs you deserve to see compensation for include funeral and burial costs.
You likely are also worried about how you are going to pay for things that your loved one used to contribute to. If you find that you are not at all able to provide for your family after the death of your loved one, that is something your attorney can help you get compensation for.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Florida
