Why does double board certification make a difference? Wrongful death claims are often complex legal matters, with variables such as proving liability against one or more parties; determining the full extent of compensation the surviving spouse and heirs deserve for a lifetime of earnings; determining the extent of medical costs, pain and suffering the deceased may have faced prior to death; and placing a monetary value on intangibles such as loss of companionship and quality of life for surviving family members.
“When we file legal briefs or step into a court hearing with double board certification, our reputation for excellence precedes us. Opposing attorneys know they are up against a law firm with proven credentials.” — Attorney Thomas C. Saunders
Establishing A Claim
Seeking legal help is likely the farthest thought from your mind if you recently lost a loved one. However, if someone else is responsible for your pain, you deserve justice. A knowledgeable lawyer from Saunders Law Group can guide you through all the necessary legal steps, so you can focus on your family. While compensation can never replace a lost loved one after a fatal accident, compensation can help to relieve the financial burden resulting from the death.
A Deadline For Filing
Under current Florida law, there is a two-year deadline (statute of limitations) for filing a wrongful death lawsuit. If you don’t file in time, you may have your lawsuit barred.
You must demonstrate that the defendant was negligent before, during or after an event that led to the death of your loved one.
Who Can File?
A wrongful death suit can be filed by the deceased’s survivors, including a spouse, child or children, beneficiaries, or dependents.
Determining Financial Damages
You must prove that monetary damages, including medical expenses, funeral costs and loss of wages, resulted from the death.
Building A Case To Prove Negligence — How We Can Help
By working with the competent and skilled attorneys at Saunders Law Group, you can benefit from our wide network of experts in the fields of medicine, engineering, accident reconstruction and economics. They can help us determine exactly how the wrongful death occurred, and how negligence played a part. From there, our attorneys can build a case that establishes third-party negligence as the primary cause of death, and eventually secure damages, including financial support for your family moving forward.
