Miami Wrongful Death Lawyer

Losing a loved one is traumatic no matter what the circumstances. Losing a loved one because of another person’s careless, reckless actions can be an even more devastating experience. Because car collisions and medical malpractice are called accidents does not mean that all parties are free of fault. No matter what realm of society we are currently participating in, we all owe each other a duty of care. This requires all road users to follow traffic laws, business owners to create a safe establishment for all of the invitees, and employers to ensure that their employees are able to work in a safe environment. When this duty to act with care is violated and results in the death of another, that party may be deemed negligent. You may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party to recover damages that you and your family have suffered because of the loss. Contact our experienced Miami wrongful death lawyers today.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death in Miami

The situations in which a fatal accident is considered a wrongful death vary widely. Auto collisions happen to be the most common cause of wrongful death within Florida. Typically, the negligent party happens to be the driver of the vehicle that caused the wreck, though defective products such as brakes or ignition switches are sometimes to blame.

Workplace injuries are another common cause of wrongful death. There were 4,679 deaths at the workplace in 2014. Manual labor is the most dangerous form of employment; 874 construction workers died in 2014. But just as in normal society, the most dangerous place for any type of vocation is on the roadways. To be sure, 28 percent of occupational fatalities were the result of transportation and material movement, such as truck drivers and drivers/sales workers.

No matter the type of work, wrongful death can occur in the workplace anywhere and anytime if there is unsafe machinery, unsafe flooring, defective products, or faulty wiring. In the case of wrongful death fatalities, the surviving family members may be eligible to collect damages in order to pay for medical bills, funeral costs, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of a provider.
