Florida Wrongful Death Law Firm
Knowledgeable Miami wrongful death attorneys
A deadly accident can strip your loved one from your life in a heartbeat. If someone else’s negligence has killed a member of your family, you can hold the negligent party accountable by filing a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf.
At the Law Offices of Gomez & Gomez, our attorneys possess a thorough understanding of Florida’s wrongful death laws. Our attorneys have over 30 years of experience assisting families with wrongful death lawsuits.
What Is Wrongful Death?
“Wrongful death” is a civil lawsuit you can file against someone you believe is responsible for the death of someone in your family. They are separate from criminal lawsuits. Both types of cases can occur at the same time.
In a wrongful death suit, you’re arguing that the defendant’s negligence or misconduct caused your loved one’s death based on a preponderance of the evidence. This is a lower burden of proof than criminal trials, which must establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Furthermore, a wrongful death lawsuit allows you to pursue compensation for your family member’s passing to help you pay for costs like funerals, medical bills, and daily expenses without them.
There are many types of wrongful death cases. Our law firm represents families in lawsuits involving:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Slips and falls
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Workplace accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Defective products
- Lack of proper security
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Aviation accidents
