When a person dies as a result of the misconduct of others, the beneficiaries of the victim may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for the death. A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to a negligent or wrongful act committed by a person or entity. A wrongful death is possibly due to negligence and is often times unintentional.

What is a wrongful death?

A few examples of wrongful death include:

  • Motor vehicle malfunctions
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Unsafe or defective prescription drugs
  • Accidents on the job

In addition to the statute of limitations restrictions, there are several main defenses that may be used to fight a wrongful death suit like causation, self-defense, contributory negligence, or comparative negligence. The availability of each defense will depend on the circumstances of the case and the laws of the state with which the wrongful death occurred.

A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit that seeks damages from the party that is responsible. Defending wrongful death claims can be very tricky and emotionally charged and involve complex legal issues. If you have had charges filed against you for wrongful death, call my office right away. You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer who understands the complex ties of health care for your wrongful death case in Florida

After taking your advice and acting fast the end result was that the state did not even press charges. We realise having a seasoned, well-connected attorney as yourself is the only reason this charge was stopped dead in its tracks. We could not have dreamed of an outcome this amazing!
