After a wrongful death in Florida, your family may be at a loss. Regardless of who passed away, you now have a void in your family that won’t be filled. You also have the financial impact of the death to worry about; funeral costs, home expenses and medical bills alone can total in the thousands of dollars.
As a loved one of the deceased, either a child, parent or spouse, you are entitled to some amount of financial recovery for your family member’s death. This recovery is determined by looking at the economic value of that person’s life. Although that may seem very black-and-white, it’s one of the better ways for the courts to make a judgment when it comes to the financial impact the death has had on your life.
To start your case right, you need to collect information. If your loved one was the breadwinner, show how the impact of his or her death will now affect your family in the long term. If a parent was killed, the impact on the family could be immense; supporting children and spouses who are stay-at-home parents can be costly and losing that income can devastate a family.
Regardless of the cause of the accident, when someone else is responsible for your loved one’s death, you deserve to get the answers and assistance you need. With the right help, you can determine how much financial impact this death has on your life, so you can seek the right amount of compensation for your needs now and in the future.
