What Determines Wrongful Death

This is simply when someone’s actions or failure to act causes another person to die. One way to think of it is, “Would the deceased person still be living if the other person had acted differently?”

Some Examples of Wrongful Death Situations

Wrongful death cases have a range of causes including:

  • Car Accidents
  • Golf Cart Accidents
  • Unsafe Products
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Nursing Home Abuse or Negligence
  • Premises Liability
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Gunshot Wounds

Who Can Be Compensated For A Wrongful Death

According to state law, any blood relative or biological sibling who is “partly or completely reliant on the recipient for protection or services” can sue for damages in a Florida wrongful death case. Speak to an Ocala FL wrongful death attorney to determine this.

How Are Wrongful Death Claims Made

Initial Steps

Most legal claims in Florida must be made within 4 years of the incident. Wrongful death suits have a shorter statute of limitations. They must be started within 2 years from the time the person died. 

In Florida such a claim must be made by the executor of the deceased person’s estate. If there was no executor specified in a will, the state will assign a surviving family member to be the personal representative. That person must initiate the claim.

Most successful wrongful death claims involve legal representation. It’s best for the executor or assigned representative to connect with an Ocala fl wrongful death attorney directly after the wrongful death happens.

The process officially begins when the attorney and the representative have their first meeting together.

Researching And Gathering Evidence

The most valuable evidence in a wrongful death claim is cause of death. So this next part of the process involves:

  • Examining medical records
  • Interviewing medical providers
  • Gathering statements from those with credible insight as to cause of death
  • If applicable, taking photos of the accident scene and talking with witnesses

How Long Does A Wrongful Death Case Last

As with many legal questions, the answer is – it depends on the details of the case. Sometimes coming to the conclusion that the defendant is liable for the person’s death requires a lot of digging. Other times the evidence is clear and the case is over quickly. The length of many cases ends up being several years.

For clarity, a case is considered complete when a verdict is reached. The court then approves the settlement amount and all compensation funds are paid to the estate beneficiaries. 

What Kinds Of Damages Can Be Claimed

Here are the kinds of damages often claimed in Ocala wrongful death suits:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost benefits
  • Lost expected investment accumulation
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of guidance
  • Loss of protection
  • Mental and emotional anguish

Factors Determining The Financial Loss

Some of these factors are simple to assess, others require further calculation. They include:

  • Income
  • Consortium
  • Parental responsibilities
  • Level of family involvement 
  • Age when the person died
  • Marriage status
  • Whether or not the person had children
  • Number of children
  • All the people the person supported while alive

The key to receiving the maximum compensation is having an experienced Ocala fl wrongful death attorney who cares enough to thoroughly discover all of these values.

Ocala FL wrongful death attorney-Pam Olsen carefully calculates the proper amount of  damages that should be claimed. She takes into consideration the person’s age, how educated they were, the kind of work they did, how much they were earning each year and their upward career trajectory. Contact Pam Olsen, Esq. today for free consultation at (352) 671-9777.

How To Calculate The Loss of Consortium

In everyday language, consortium means companionship. The value depends on:

  • How long the person had been married
  • Number of children
  • Children’s ages (damages awarded can be higher with younger children)
  • Elderly parents depending on the deceased person
  • Percentage of contribution – if the deceased was the only money earner in the home, the amount awarded can be higher

All of these aspects need to be fully understood and explained to the court so the correct amount of damages are claimed. This is why working with an experienced Ocala FL wrongful death attorney like Pam Olsen is so important.

Do Wrongful Death Cases Always Go To Trial

Not necessarily. These cases can be settled out of court. Sometimes the evidence clearly shows the other person was at fault. Insurance companies don’t want the additional court costs when there is no chance for a win. 

When the dispute is less clear, these cases usually go to trial. It’s common to receive a minimal settlement offer from the insurance company, but the value awarded from a judge and jury is much higher.

Wrongful Death in Criminal Cases

So far we’ve been talking about accidents or negligence. When there was malice or premeditation the defendant first faces criminal proceedings. 

If the court finds the defendant guilty, he or she can no longer plead innocence if sued in a civil lawsuit. Speak to an Ocala FL wrongful death attorney to understand this better.
