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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

Alex Casas and his team knew just the right approach for my suit and handled it with tact and care. Alex is one of the nicest lawyers I've met - no ego-- no pontificating -- no showing us how important he was. Alex got right down to business, with a smile on his face, and completed our claim quickly, achieving the results we wanted. Thank you, Alex, Susie and Staff.

"A steady, reassuring and calming voice when you need it most." Alex Casas and his team are great. My situation was very complicated since I was dealing with a number of insurance companies and multiple hospital bills! The team at Casas Law worked with all the various factors and made everything seamless as well as keeping me informed the whole way. I would not have known how to maneuver the insurance waters so I was very glad that Alex was there for me. I would highly recommend Casas Law, Alex, Susie and the whole team.

Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!

Alex Casas was referred to me by a friend who spoke highly of him and his work. As I met with him I quickly realized my friend was right. He was knowledgeable, personable, truthful and had my family's best interest. His compassion and patience before, during, and after my case sets him and his staff apart from other law offices. Those qualities are hard to come by. When you hire him you will find for yourself.
