Did A Loved One Suffer A Fatal Injury?
A serious accident can cause trying times for any family, but when a family member dies as a result of a fatal accident, the family suddenly finds itself drowning in grief, funeral expenses and even medical expenses from the deceased relative’s hospitalization. No settlement can ever alleviate the tragedy of losing a loved one or replace a family member’s companionship.
Gerber Law provides personal, yet aggressive representation throughout Florida’s southwest coast. We are ready to help you get back on your feet after losing a beloved family member in an accident.
If another individual, a company or any other party caused the death negligently, recklessly or even intentionally, you have the right to seek justice. The law provides that a deceased person’s estate and the family survivors, including the spouse, children or others, may recover damages.
Damages Available For A Wrongful Death
At Gerber Law, our staff is committed to helping grieving families obtain just compensation for their tragic losses. Founding attorney Maria Gerber is an experienced attorney who can provide knowledgeable counsel and maximize her clients’ chances of a wrongful death recovery.
Some injuries, such as spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries, may not kill a person immediately and may cause death months or even years after the accident. If the accident caused the injury and the injury caused the death, you may still be entitled to compensation.
When someone dies, the deceased’s family suffers both emotionally and financially. Your family could receive compensation for any of the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Lost companionship
- Medical expenses you incurred between the accident and the date your family member died
- Lost wages and future earnings
- Lost benefits
- Lost inheritance
A loved one’s death because of another individual’s negligence, recklessness or intentional malice is devastating and emotionally draining. If you have recently lost a loved one to an accident, you probably have many questions about how to recover for your loss.
The legalities surrounding wrongful death claims are complex, and holding the negligent party accountable requires a knowledgeable attorney’s assistance. Attorney Maria Gerber has the knowledge and experience to get you the best recovery possible under your heartbreaking circumstances.
