Hire An Auto Accident Attorney — Wrongful Death Cases Deserve a Resolution
Losing a loved one is a devastating and depleting experience. We take wrongful deaths very seriously and understand the disturbing emotional and financial impact that a sudden, unfair loss can bring into the survivors’ lives. That is why it is important to keep in mind the legal implications of the unfair death. Under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, the survivors, heirs, or beneficiaries are entitled to seek compensation.
Pursuing monetary compensation through a judicial claim is meant to not only cover for the immeasurable emotional pain and mental anguish, but for funeral or burial expenses, lost future earnings, and loss of retirement money, child support, or medical benefits from the decedent.

Wrongful Death: Auto Accident Crashes Are Often to Blame
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 36,096 traffic fatalities in 2019. This number includes occupant fatalities in passenger vehicles, cars, light trucks, large trucks, and motorcyclists. This number also includes nonoccupant fatalities, encompassing pedestrian and bicyclist deaths.
The most common causes of a wrongful death auto accident crash include:
- Distracted driving, including texting and driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Unsafe driving, including speeding
- Driver fatigue
- Poor street and highway conditions
- Car manufacturing defects
In many of these cases, a driver or manufacturer is acting negligently and may be held accountable for their role in an auto accident. Corporations, entities, and their employees can be held responsible for a person’s wrongful death. Individual people may also be held liable.
When your loved one experiences an unfair death due to someone else’s negligence, you need to find an adept auto accident attorney — wrongful death can be established, leading to closure and necessary compensation.
