Contact Casas Law today to learn more about how we can help you achieve the outcome you deserve.
Wrongful death lawsuits can be filed in a number of different circumstances, from medical malpractice to manslaughter. When a death is caused by the actions – or inactions – of another party, you may be able to seek compensation. Again, while this will not replace your loved one, it will help with medical bills, housing expenses, and other essentials.
A Casas Law West Palm Beach wrongful death attorney will represent you tirelessly – and compassionately – so you cope with this process.
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 wrongful death lawyers have handled cases involving deaths that resulted from car accidents, defective products, work/job accidents, criminal activities, including murder and manslaughter, 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 “dictated representative” of the deceased’s estate can file a wrongful death claim. This may be a surviving family member, such as a spouse, child, parent, or adoptive sibling or blood relative who was dependent on the victim. If there is no will, then any of the surviving members may be chosen as representative.
If you are not sure if you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim, please do not hesitate to contact us.
QWhat Is the Wrongful Death Process?A
The wrongful death process encompasses several key steps, including:
- Pretrial research and investigation
- Negotiations with insurance companies
- Filing of the wrongful death lawsuit
- Discovery (i.e. requests for admissions, interviews, depositions, document requests, etc.)
- Motions (e.g. summary judgment)
- 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 necessary
Again, it can seem overwhelming; when Casas Law’s wrongful death lawyers represent you, though, they guide you through every step so you feel confident, informed, and prepared. You are never alone.
QWho Pays for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?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. You may be responsible for expenses, such as expert witnesses. Be sure to ask us to clarify.
QShould I Hire a Wrongful Death Attorney?A
Yes. And we are not just saying that because we are wrongful death lawyers. The fact of the matter is that wrongful death cases are incredibly complex – and they are very emotional for survivors. It is helpful to have a guide, an advocate, and an expert on your side. Contact Casas Law for your free initial consultation. We are sorry for your loss, and we will work tirelessly to ensure you receive appropriate compensation. Nothing can replace your loved one, but you can find a measure of relief so you can move on in your grieving process.
