Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death

Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death LawyerFt. Lauderdale Fatal Accident AttorneyWrongful Death

Simply put, a wrongful death is a death caused by the fault of another.

For most people, the death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things they will face in a lifetime, no matter what the circumstances. Such a tragedy is magnified when another’s carelessness or negligent act is to blame for your loved one’s death. A wrongful death may be the result of a drunk driving accident, a boating accident, nursing home negligence, medical errors, a dangerous drug, a defective product or unsafe conditions in the workplace, or in a building or other structure.

While the local prosecutor or State Attorney takes action against the person who caused the death, surviving family members, may file a criminal charge and the decedent's estate may have the right to undertake a civil action and file a wrongful death claim to seek financial compensation.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
