Wrongful Death Law in Brevard, Palm Bay, Melbourne, and surrounding Areas in Florida

When someone dies due to the fault of another person or entity (like an automobile manufacturer), the survivors may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. This type of lawsuit seeks compensation for the survivors' loss, such as lost wages from the deceased, lost companionship, and funeral expenses.

A wrongful death claim exists when a person dies due to the legal fault of another person. Wrongful death claims involve all types of fatal accidents from simple car accidents to complicated medical malpractice or product liability cases. Persons, companies, and governmental agencies can be legally at fault for acting negligently (failing to act as a reasonable person would have acted) and for acting intentionally.

A wrongful death claim must be filed by a representative on behalf of the survivors who suffer damage from the decedent's death. The representative is usually the executor of the decedent's estate. Some of those people might include immediate family members like spouses and children (including adopted children), and parents of unmarried children can recover under wrongful death actions. Life partners, financial dependents, and putative spouses.

Wrongful death lawsuits can be brought against a wide variety of persons, companies, government agencies, and employees. For example, in a car accident involving a faulty roadway and a drunk driver, a wrongful death action might include defendants such as the driver or employer at fault in and automobile accident; a government agent who failed to provide adequate warnings regarding a road hazard that caused the accident; the manufacturer, distributor, or installer of a faulty or dangerous part of the vehicle; the persons who sold, served, or gave alcohol to an impaired driver; or the owner of the premises where the alcohol was served.
