Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Lawyers Fighting in Your Loved One’s Name

When a death occurs because of another person’s negligence or wrongful conduct, the surviving family members suddenly find themselves faced with immediate expenses and a future of financial uncertainty, coupled with the pain, frustration, anger, and other emotions that come from losing a loved one in a needless, preventable tragedy. The Pensacola, FL wrongful death lawyers at the Law Office of J.J. Talbott, P.A. understand the difficulties that spouses and children face when they lose a spouse or parent. Our lawyers also understand what it takes to recover the compensation they need to move forward.

We help families in Florida and Alabama recover appropriate compensation under their state’s wrongful death laws.

Recovering for Expenses and Loss in Florida Wrongful Death Matters

Florida wrongful death law authorizes the personal representative of the deceased to pursue an action against the wrongdoer for the benefit of the surviving spouse and children. Other family members may also recover compensation if they were dependent on the deceased for services and support.

Damages that can be recovered against the party responsible for causing the death include:

  • Loss of earnings, such as wages, business income, and pension benefits, that the deceased would have accumulated over his or her lifetime had the death not happened
  • Loss of companionship and support
  • Loss of parental guidance and instruction
  • Mental pain and suffering
  • Value of household services and support
  • Hospital bills and medical expenses were incurred after the injury but death
  • Funeral and burial expenses

These cases can be difficult to prove, especially when the deceased was not able to give an account of the events that transpired before passing. Nevertheless, our attorneys have the resources and experience needed to investigate the cause of a car wreck or truck accident and determine who should be held liable.

Wrongful Death Laws

Alabama wrongful death law is different from Florida law or other states in the nation. Rather than compensating the surviving family members for their loss, wrongful death damages in Alabama are punitive in nature, meant to punish the wrongdoer for causing the death of another through negligence or misconduct. These cases must be approached differently from personal injury claims; it takes a measure of knowledge, skill, and dedication to develop a persuasive case for damages in an Alabama wrongful death lawsuit.
