Fort Myers Wrongful Death Lawyer

If you have recently suffered the loss of a loved one, we fully understand that no amount of financial compensation from the negligent party will ease the pain of your grief. However, that financial compensation can go towards any medical bills that accrued during the days or weeks before the death. That compensation can also pay for funeral expenses, loss of financial support in the years to come, and loss of consortium. If you have lost a loved one, you have two years from the date of their death to file a wrongful death lawsuit, as per Florida’s wrongful death statute of limitations. This means that you do not have to begin the legal process immediately after your time of mourning. Contact an experienced Fort Myers wrongful death lawyer for more information on what steps to take next.

Wrongful Death on Fort Myers Roadways

Wrongful death civil lawsuits are similar to personal injury lawsuits in that they stem from the same types of avoidable accidents, and the party responsible took negligent or series of negligent actions that caused the accident to occur. Many wrongful death accidents take place on Florida’s highways and freeways. In fact, 2,494 people died in traffic collisions in Florida in 2014, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, with even more expected to have perished last year in 2015. Pedestrians are at an increased risk due to their complete lack of protection and the increasingly dangerous roads, largely because of driver inattention. Twenty-four percent of all traffic fatalities in Florida in 2014 were those of pedestrians, despite trips taken by foot only being a fraction of the number of trips taken in automobiles.

Wrongful Death Occurs While on the Job and in Unsafe Premises

Hundreds of Florida workers perish long before their time because of unsafe and unsatisfactory work conditions. Those that work in food processing facilities, factories, convenient stores, construction, fishers, and as bartenders are at high risk due to the inherent dangers of their occupation. However, that does not mean that an employer will be let off the hook in the event of a serious injury, let alone a fatality. We conduct thorough investigations and hire expert witnesses in order to get to the bottom of what really happened. Whether the death occured while at work or while in an unsafe premises, the employer or business owner may likely be held responsible if we find that the conditions were unsafe. Trips and falls injure and even kill a surprising number of people, and unsafe flooring, unmarked steps, unkempt stairways, spills, and poor lighting are often to blame. Many times, an employer or business owner will attempt to cover up their negligence by removing evidence after the fatality occurred.
