Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death

Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death LawyerFt. Lauderdale Fatal Accident Attorney

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
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

I would like to thank the staff of Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, P.A. The staff is professional. My attorney, Ronald Rodman, was responsive towards my email and a great advocate on my behalf for my car accident. I highly recommend this office. I hope that I will not get in a car accident again, but if I do, I'm calling Mr. Rodman. Orlando R.
