Frankl & Kominsky understands that anyone in Boynton Beach who has lost a loved one in a fatal car accident faces a myriad of emotional and financial costs. While contemplating legal action at this time is difficult, it is important to consult experienced attorneys about your rights during this difficult time.
In Florida, the Wrongful Death Law gives "Right of Action" to family members who lose a loved one in a fatal car accident. While lawmakers understand, there is no financial compensation that can replace a loved one, they also want to mitigate the financial burden faced by survivors. Family members - a spouse, child or parent of the victim - can pursue claims against the parties responsible for their loss. Boynton Beach families may be able to recover financial compensation for funeral costs, medical costs, lost earnings, and damages resulting from the fatal accident.
Specific types of damages include:
Loss of support. This includes not only current wages, but potential future wages. Surviving family members may be able to recover the amount the deceased family member would have contributed financially had they not been involved in a fatal accident.
Loss of companionship and protection. Surviving family members may be eligible to receive damages for loss of companionship and protection resulting from the negligence of the party that caused the accident.
Pain and suffering. Losing a loved one takes a heavy emotional toll. In Florida, surviving family members may receive damages for the mental pain and suffering caused by the loss of a family member.
Medical expenses. Surviving family members may be able to recoup the costs of any medical treatment related to the fatal accident.
Funeral expenses. The party responsible for the fatal accident, not the surviving members of the family, are responsible for the cost of funeral and burial expenses.Call Frankl & Kominsky for Help
