Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death Lawyer

The loss of a loved one is often the most traumatic experience any of us ever have to go through. The pain is only made worse when their life was taken before by another person’s negligence. The term “accident” is used all too often in our line of work, and to describe it as such is often not admitting the full truth. As members of society, we all have a duty of care to one another that demands we act in ways that never put another person in harm’s way. When loss of life happens because of another party’s reckless speeding, careless driving by using a cell phone, medical malpractice, or a failure to clean an unsafe walking surface, the negligent party may be found liable for damages and the family of the deceased’s may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Contact our experienced Fort Lauderdale wrongful death lawyers today.

The Causes of a Wrongful Death in Fort Lauderdale

There isn’t a single cause of a wrongful death. There are a variety of ways that negligence leads to a fatality. In Florida, auto collisions are the number one cause of wrongful deaths. The negligent party may be a driver of another vehicle, or it could be the car company that let an unsafe, defective product out on the roads. The survivors of the person killed may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent party.

Another common cause of wrongful death is fatalities in the workplace, accounting for 4,679 deaths in 2014. Manual labor is the most dangerous employment, with 874 construction workers perishing in 2014. However, regardless of the type of employment, it should come as no surprise that being on the roadways accounts for the most number of deaths for workplace fatalities. Twenty-eight percent of occupational fatalities were the result of transportation and material movement, such as truck drivers and drivers/sales workers. Fatalities in the workplace can happen anytime and anywhere, due to unsafe machinery, defective products, unsafe flooring, or simply being out on the U.S. roadways. If the fatality was considered a wrongful death, the surviving family members may be able to collect damages to cover medical bills, funeral costs, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of a provider.
