Wrongful Death Attorney Miami

It is difficult when a spouse, parent, child, or other loved one dies because of someone else’s negligence. Surviving family members feel grief, confusion, and anger. Many people consult with a wrongful death lawyer in Miami to seek compensation. At Goldman & Daszkal, we understand that no amount of compensation will bring back your loved one, but it will help ease the financial burdens of their loss.

What Is wrongful death and who can file a claim?

Wrongful death is caused by “the negligent, willful, or wrongful act, neglect, omission, or default of another.” A wrongful death claim is similar to a personal injury claim, except that it is not brought by the victim. In Florida, the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate may legally file a wrongful death claim. Compensation is paid to the victim’s estate for the benefit of survivors and dependents. The personal representative lists every survivor who has an interest in the case and could legally claim a portion of the damages.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases

Your Miami wrongful death lawyer at Goldman & Daszkal provides compassionate representation during this difficult time. We want to ensure you get the compensation you deserve to help with the financial burden after losing a loved one. It’s important to know that those responsible for the death of your loved one often face criminal charges, but not always. A civil suit to seek compensation has no bearing on the outcome of a criminal trial. A person could be found not guilty in criminal court but still be found responsible for compensation in a civil trial.

There are several types of wrongful death scenarios that overlap other practice areas of Goldman & Daszkal, including: 

Motor vehicle accidents: A negligent or drunk driver could be held liable for wrongful death.

Workplace accidents: Employers must provide a safe workplace. A breach of this duty can lead to wrongful death suits.

Product liability: Defective products that result in death can result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Medical malpractice: When medical care leads to death, surviving family members have unanswered questions and extensive medical bills. A wrongful death settlement can answer those questions and offset the medical expenses.
