The surviving spouse may seek compensation for the loss of their companionship, mental pain and suffering. Similarly, the children may seek compensation for the same results. And, parents of the deceased may seek damages for mental pain and suffering. Medical and funeral expenses may be recovered, if a party already paid for this. Moreover, attorney fees are paid from the final amount as well.

Wrongful Death Damages

Determining the damages in wrongful death lawsuits is complicated. At Lawlor & Associates, our lawyers are experienced with Florida’s Wrongful Death Act and have succeeded in seeking compensation in several high-profile cases:

  • Confidential settlement for a client that was involved in a rear-end collision and sustained neck and back injuries. Unfortunately, recovery was difficult, and after back surgery, she suffered a pulmonary emulsion and passed away.
  • Confidential settlement for a fourteen year old child that was tackled on the football field during a South Florida Youth Football league and laid unconscious on the field. The client subsequently died due to the representatives at the field not having experience in CPR or neck injuries.
  • $750,000 settlement for a fourteen year old boy that was stabbed to death at a teen club in West Palm Beach due to negligent security.
