Tampa Wrongful Death Lawyer

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one due to another person or business’ negligence, we fully understand that no amount of financial compensation or punishment will ever come close to making up for your and your family’s suffering. Wrongful death lawsuits are not meant to right a wrong. Instead, they are meant to help provide some sort of financial future for you and your family. The compensation of a wrongful death lawsuit can help solve the financial aspect of your loss, which is just one more thing you should not have to worry about in the days, months, and years of emotional recovery to come. Let our experienced Tampa wrongful death lawyers help with your lawsuit, but what exactly does a wrongful death lawsuit address? A wrongful death lawsuit can help cover:

  • Funeral expenses of the deceased;
  • Loss of consortium, which is essentially akin to emotional pain and suffering due to the loss of a companion. Loss of consortium is particularly relevant in situations that involve a young child losing a parent that would have been a part of their life for decades to come. Loss of consortium helps (but of course does not replace) provide compensation for the immense emotional loss of a loved one;
  • Lost wages of the deceased, which can be calculated based on the predicted average annual salary or earnings of the deceased, multiplied by the years they would have continued working, with other relevant factors added into the picture to give the most accurate outcome possible;
  • Medical expense associated with the death of the loved one. Whether their stay in a hospital was short or long, the cost is likely high in both scenarios. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, of patients that are sent to the emergency department after a car crash, 42.9 percent arrive by ambulance, which even by itself adds up to thousands of dollars. Airlifts are even more expensive;
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased from the moment of their injury until they passed away, which can be substantial given the fact that in many traumatic accidents, the fatally injured victim may spend days or weeks in the hospital in intensive care; and
  • Property damage.

The Top Five Accidental Fatal Home Injuries

Most “accidents” are preventable. Many premises injuries are often no different than injuries that occur out on the highway: they could have been prevented if the appropriate measures were taken. However, unlike traffic collisions, home accidents are less straightforward. Obviously if a loved one perished in their own home, it may not be plausible that it was another’s fault. However, if the fatality occurred on another party’s property, it may be argued that they should have taken certain safety measures to prevent the fatal injury, such as installing a child-proof gate around a swimming pool. Listed below are the top five ways in which fatal home injuries occur, according to U.S. News:

  • Falls;
  • Poisoning;
  • Fire or burns;
  • Airway obstruction (suffocation); and
  • Drowning.
