    Wrongful Death Lawyer in Tampa

    When a person dies due to the negligence of another, the surviving family members may be entitled to compensation. The unexpected loss of a loved one can leave a family with heavy financial burdens due to lost wages and medical expenses associated with the accident.

    Wrongful death claims involve all types of fatal accidents, whether they were intentional or unintentional. These claims can involve car accidents, product liability, medical malpractice, etc.

    Wrongful death claims can be filed by a representative to the survivors that have suffered damage from the death, or by the decedent’s heirs. Sometimes, the party responsible for your loved one’s death may face criminal charges due to their actions. Even if this person is acquitted of criminal charges, you can still file a civil lawsuit in order to receive damages.

    What Damages Can I Receive in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

    A Tampa wrongful death attorney from Wolf & Pravato can also help you determine what damages can be recovered in your case. Generally, a family may be able to recover economic damages for monetary losses suffered due to the death of your loved one.

    Economic damages refer to the calculable financial loss as a result of the unexpected death. Additionally, non-economic damages may be recoverable. Non-economic damages, which are just as valuable as economic damages, are the subjective and non-quantifiable emotional distresses suffered by your family.

    Economic damages – medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of victim’s expected earnings, loss of benefits (pensions, insurance, etc.), loss of inheritance, loss of goods and services

    Non-economic damages – pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of care, guidance, protection, love, society, companionship and consortium

    It is important to note, there is a two year time limit in which the state of Florida allows you to file a wrongful death claim.
