Wrongful Death Claims

Injury Attorney Serving DeLand, FL

There is nothing more painful than the loss of a loved one. When someone passes away on account of another person's negligence, it may considered wrongful death. Anyone affected by such an incident has the right to seek compensation. If you have recently suffered the loss of a close relative or supporter, our DeLand personal injury attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim. Contact Buckmaster & Ellzey for qualified guidance in this difficult matter.

Can I file for wrongful death?

A wrongful death is any loss of life that is considered the legal fault of another person. For example, someone who violates traffic laws and causes an accident may be liable for a wrongful death claim. Of course, liability extends well beyond traffic laws to anyone who owned, designed, manufactured, enabled, or neglected a cause of death.

You can file a claim if you suffer damages on account of a wrongful death. In Florida, persons associated with the deceased who are able to file such claims include:

  • Children
  • Spouse
  • Parents
  • Dependents (including beneficiaries)

If you meet any of these qualifications, and if the fault of death can be attributed to another party, you may be eligible to receive compensation for mental suffering, medical and/or funeral expenses, lost support and services, lost companionship and other damages.
