According to Florida Law, a wrongful death is when someone dies as a result of another entity’s wrongful act. Wrongful acts can be considered negligence, default, or breach of contract in regards to the safety of a person. Had the event that caused the death not been so devastating, then the person would have recovered from the injuries instead of dying.
Of course, wrongful death is hard to recover from. Without the word “wrongful” in it, it is basically the passing of someone because someone couldn’t be careful. That is a horrible way to pass, and obviously not the way anybody would want to leave. Wrongful death can feel even worse if the person that died is an immediate family member or relative of yours.
Just in the USA alone, there are 32,000 traffic related deaths. Out of these 32,000, about a third of them are caused by drunk driving. A death caused by a drunk driver is definitely a wrongful death. Had that driver not been drunk, the accident could have been prevented and the death probably would have not occured.
If that wasn’t enough, there are about 98,000 deaths related to medical malpractice. Basically, if you don’t want to read our link, medical malpractice is when negligence by a medical professional leads to injury or death. That means there are 98,000 deaths that come from a doctor messing up a surgery, misdiagnose someone, or who knows what happened.
If you thought the doctor’s office was already dangerous, the workplace can offer some life-threatening dangers too. Almost 6,000 deaths occur in the workplace alone. Remember though, that not all workplaces are like a corporate style office. Some workplaces are labor-related, so construction work and stuff like that. So although many people would think that a death in the workplace is unlikely, in lots of labor related workplaces, it is more than likely.
Wrongful death can happen in a lot of different places and situations.
Death can happen at any time. It is not limited to specific situations, death can happen at any time if the situation gets too crazy.
Wrongful death especially. You can think of wrongful death as a terrible accident that went too far. So far gone that it became death instead of a severe injury.
Something like a traffic accident. Someone hits you too hard when you’re crossing an intersection. The injuries might be so severe that you die. This can also happen to a bicycle rider. They could be riding down any road and then suddenly a car hits them. This isn’t uncommon. Even when I was in highschool I was riding a bike, and I got hit by a car. I went flying into a bush. But if that bush wasn’t there and instead there was just concrete or maybe another car, I may have died. These are just examples of how easy and real it is to just disappear because of a terrible accident.

Whether the death happened in a public or private area, or during work or under the care of a medical professional, the common thing is that there is a duty to act with care in all those situations. If there is a breach of that contract (duty to act with care), then there is a possibility that there was negligence involved.
The team at Accident Lawyers MIA specializes in 4 main areas of wrongful death.
Anything from car accidents to truck accidents, if the accident and death involved a vehicle and the other party did something that could fall under negligence, we can help you get the financial compensation to make up for the pain and suffering that was felt. Anything like:
These are all cases that we will take and make sure that you win if there was negligence involved. If the driver was drunk, texting, calling, looking away, dozing, or anything of that nature while they were driving, that is considered negligent in action. So if you know those things were involved, give us a call.
The workplace is supposed to be safe, but sometimes it is not. Falling objects, slippery floors, and mismanaged equipment are all possible reasons to get injured or even possibly die. However, work accidents are a little more complicated than the regular traffic accidents. There is much more complexity involved, and that is where we come in.
Our team at Accident Lawyers MIA have an extensive and winning resume in work accidents that lead to death. Some of the complexities can be:
Like I said before, medical malpractice is a common way to die or get injured. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to continue to suffer while your loved one or someone you know passed away. You can get the financial compensation to ease the costs of them passing. Medical malpractice can be hard to prove and requires expertise in the field, something our lawyers have experience in and also excel at.
Instead of wondering how to go about the case, contact a professional like my team and get the help that you need.
What is a statute of limitations?
Well to put it easily, statute of limitations is an amount of time you have to file a claim.
In Florida, the statute of limitations is 2 years. So from the day of the passing of your loved one until the next two years, you have time to file.
However, it wouldn’t make sense to file a claim at the 2 year mark. There are lots of complexities that would make your case possibly invalid if we do not act together and properly. By just waiting and thinking, the time will pass and there will be nothing for you to gain from the passing of your loved one. From the medical bills to the lost wages, all that is lost time and money that could be given back to you.
Our team has the experience to work in that statute and also to help you gain back the lost time and money that resulted from negligence.

Still open questions?
Ideally, you will want to hire a personal injury lawyer as soon as you get injured. If you are injured and your body is in pain, why wait and live with the pain? That makes no sense. You want to get rid of the pain as soon as possible. If you have more questions contact us
That depends on how badly you were injured. People joke around about “I wish I got hit by a car” or “If I slip and fall here, I’m gonna make a fortune”. Although that is possible, it is not always possible. They are jokes for a reason. You will make as much as you are owed. If it is just a scratch, then you will not be compensated much. If you had to have major surgery and are going through rehab, then you will make MUCH more than just a simple scratch or small bump.
