Fort Lauderdale Wrongful 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.
