If your loved one’s death was caused by the actions or negligence of another party, you likely have questions, concerns, and worries racing through your mind. You are not alone. We will help you find your answers. Start here.
QWhat Are the Different Types of Wrongful Death Cases?A
Our team has handled cases involving deaths that resulted from car accidents, defective products, work/job accidents, criminal activities, and medical malpractice/negligence.
QWho Is Eligible to File a Wrongful Death Claim?A
Coping with the death of a loved one is difficult enough; thinking about taking legal action can seem overwhelming. Rest assured, the Casas Law team is here to help you through each step of the process. In Florida, only the Personal Representative of the deceased’s estate can file a wrongful death claim. The Personal Representative is typically designated in the deceased Will. In the absence of a Will, the Court will appoint a Personal Representative.
Florida law limits who can recover damages from a wrongful death claim. To determine if you are entitled to recover damages, you should speak to an experienced wrongful death lawyer.
Casas Law can help you determine if you are eligible to recover damages from a wrongful death claim.
QWhat Is the Wrongful Death Process?A
The wrongful death claim process encompasses several key steps, including:
- Research and investigation to determine if the death was caused by another party’s negligence and what financial resources are available to compensate for the loss
- Attempt to settle the claim without filing a lawsuit, including negotiations with insurance companies
- Filing of the wrongful death lawsuit if negotiations are unsuccessful
- Preparation for trial (even if a case does not go to trial, you need an experienced wrongful death lawyer who is ready and able to take that step if necessary)
- Trial, if a settlement has not been reached
Although it can seem overwhelming, Casas Law’s wrongful death team will guide you through every step so you feel confident, informed, and prepared. You are never alone.
QCan I Afford to Hire a Wrongful Death Lawyer?A
Typically, wrongful death cases are handled on a contingency basis. This means that your attorney will be paid a portion of your award. If you do not receive compensation, then there is no fee. In addition to fees, there are various costs involved in pursuing a wrongful death claim. At Casas Law, these costs are also contingent upon a recovery. If you do not receive compensation, you are not responsible for fees or costs.
QShould I Hire a Wrongful Death Attorney?A
Yes. The fact of the matter is that wrongful death cases are incredibly complex – and emotionally difficult for survivors. It is helpful to have a guide, an advocate, and an experienced attorney on your side. Contact Casas Law for your free consultation. We will work tirelessly to ensure you receive appropriate compensation. Nothing can replace your loved one, but the recovery we can help you achieve will enable you to concentrate on moving forward.
