Wrongful Death

Naples Wrongful Death Attorneys

What is Considered a Wrongful Death in Florida?

Legally, a wrongful death case can include incidents involving fatalities that occur because of negligence or recklessness. The death is usually considered “wrongful” if it could have, and should have, been prevented by proper care and caution.

Coping with the loss of a loved one is never easy, but this already difficult situation can be even more challenging if your loved one was harmed because of someone else’s negligence or mistake. A wrongful death lawsuit refers to the legal process when the family or spouse files a lawsuit on behalf of their deceased loved one to obtain justice and compensation on their behalf. These lawsuits can include accidents involving car crashes, work-related fatalities, chemical exposure, premises liability, and more.
