How Will an Attorney Assist a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death claims can be very challenging, particularly when going up against the legal teams or the insurance carriers for the at-fault party. A Bradenton personal injury attorney can handle every aspect of these claims on behalf of their clients, which includes:
Investigating every aspect of the incident
Handling all communication and negotiations with other parties
Working with economic and financial experts to calculate total expected losses
Fully preparing the Bradenton wrongful death claim for a trial by jury
Are You Allowed to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Bradenton?
In many states around the country, relatives of the deceased are allowed to file a wrongful death claim. However, Florida law requires that the personal representative, often referred to as the executor, file the wrongful death claim in court. This personal representative will handle the claim on behalf of the deceased individual’s estate and any surviving family members. All beneficiaries will be listed on the claim that gets filed.
The estate of the deceased and surviving family members may be able to recover a wide range of compensation as a result of their loss. This includes, but is not limited to, compensation for:
Loss of services or support the deceased would have provided their family members throughout their lifetime
Loss of companionship, protection, and guidance the deceased would have provided their loved ones
Mental and emotional pain and suffering damages
Funeral and burial expenses paid by surviving family members or the estate
Lost wages and benefits the deceased would have provided
