Compassionate Legal Support For Surviving Family In Wrongful Death Cases

Losing a loved one to a preventable accident or injury is one of the most difficult things anyone could go through. Nobody should have to endure that kind of nightmare. But here you find yourself, and you shouldn’t have to tackle the legal considerations alone.

At The Andres Lopez Law Firm, PA, we can stand beside you each step of the way, providing compassionate guidance and aggressive advocacy. Our lawyer handles wrongful death claims involving auto accidents, negligent security, dangerous property conditions, dog bites and other causes. Our entire firm is committed to providing the legal support you need during this difficult time. Here, you can expect to be treated like family.

The Basics Of Wrongful Death Claims In Florida

A wrongful death claim is a type of personal injury case that gives surviving loved ones the standing to pursue compensation. Generally, to pursue a wrongful death claim, you must have one of the following relationships to the person who passed away:

  • Spouse
  • Parent
  • Child

As with other types of injury claims, you must prove liability – that is, show that someone else’s negligence contributed to your loved one’s death. Our lawyer understands the nuances of liability and fault, and he can build a strong case for you.

Once liability is established, you must also provide evidence to support your claim for damages (or financial recovery). Those damages might include:

  • Your loved one’s medical expenses and other costs related to the accident
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of your loved one’s financial support
  • Loss of their companionship and protection
  • Emotional and mental suffering

Here, too, our attorney knows how to present strong evidence to support your financial claim. He works with trusted expert witnesses to translate the vast harm you and your loved ones have suffered in economic terms that adequately compensate you for the past, present and future impact of your loss.

Don’t Wait To Learn More About Your Rights

It may be difficult to consider legal options immediately after losing a loved one, but the sooner you explore your options, the better your chances of building a strong case. Wrongful death cases in Florida also have a relatively swift deadline (or statute of limitations). Generally, you only have two years from your loved one’s death to pursue a claim.

We offer free initial consultations so you can learn more about your options and how we can help. To get started, contact our South Florida offices at 754-764-6775 or reach out online. We have convenient offices in both Fort Lauderdale and Coral Springs.

    Client Review

    "My mother was in a bad car accident. She had to hospitalize for her injuries and broke her right wrist. We decided to hire The Andres Lopez Law Firm after her accident for the personal injuries caused by the other party. I can say, we have made the right decision by hiring them. Not only they settled our case, Alex from the law firm was always responsive to our questions and also guided is through throughout the whole process. I highly recommend them if anyone else gets into a situation like ours."
