When a loved one dies due to the negligence of another person, a family is left with heavy emotional and financial burdens. A Miami wrongful death attorney from Wolf & Pravato can guide you through this difficult time and offer sound legal advice in order for you and your family to move forward.
Wrongful death claims can arise following a negligent, reckless, careless or intentional action taken by another person that caused the death of a loved one. In Miami, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by a representative for the family of the victim, or by the victim’s heirs themselves. The Miami wrongful death attorneys from Wolf & Pravato can assist you in filing your lawsuit against the responsible party in order to get your family the compensation they deserve.
The standard of proof in wrongful death claims is lower than that for a criminal case. It can be easier to win a wrongful death case than it is to get a conviction in a criminal case. Criminal prosecution and wrongful death lawsuits, however, are not mutually exclusive. The negligent party responsible for the death of your loved one may be sued for wrongful death in civil court as well as brought to stand trial in a Miami criminal court.
What Damages Can I Receive in a Miami Wrongful Death Claim?
In a wrongful death lawsuit, a family can recover damages for medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of the victim’s future earnings, loss of benefits such as pensions and insurance, loss of inheritance and loss of goods and services. These types of damages are known as economic damages due to the fact that that financial loss from these events can be quantified.
There are other types of damages, non-economic damages, that can be awarded in a Miami wrongful death lawsuit. These include pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of care, guidance , love, society, consortium and companionship. These types of damages are harder to calculate than economic damages because an exact dollar amount cannot be placed on them. In order to ensure you and your family receive the compensation you deserve following the loss of your loved one, contact an experienced Miami wrongful death attorney from Wolf & Pravato. Justice is not automatic; we will fight for you.
