Wrongful Death

Gainesville, Florida Civil Litigation Law Firm

If you need the information on this page, chances are you recently lost a loved one in a tragic accident.

If that is the case: First and foremost, we are very sorry for your loss.

When you lose a loved one, it affects you and your family on a number of levels. Families and friends grieve untimely deaths for many years after the accident happens. The pain is multiplied when the death is the result of negligence, or if it could have been prevented in some way.

Death is a natural part of life, but an unnecessary and preventable death, one where someone is cut down in the prime of life, leaves individuals, families, and whole communities with a void, wondering about what could have been.

At Moody, Salzman, Lash and Locigno, we understand that a wrongful death lawsuit usually happens when you're grieving so much that even small letdowns feel unbearable. Financial compensation can't replace your lost loved one, but it can keep you and your family from the added stress of financial ruin while you grieve.

Are you eligible to sue for damages?

Surviving parents, husbands, wives, and children may be able to recover various kinds of damages when a fatal accident takes a loved one from them. In the state of Florida, families may receive economic damages to cover medical or funeral costs. They may also sue for damages simply for pain and suffering that results from losing companionship with the person who died.

For any accident or intentional act that claims the life of another person in Gainesville, Florida, and the surrounding areas- car accidents with fatalities, boating accidents, medical malpractice, unsafe situations or hazards on private or public properties, violence, recklessness, endangerment, negligence, failure to follow protocol, DUIs, DWIs, malfunctioning or defective parts--you may be eligible to sue for wrongful death. If the person who died was the main income provider for your household, you may be eligible to sue for damages.

Our firm uses highly trained and skilled experts, such as investigators and medical professionals, who can reconstruct and go over the accident's specifics second by second, helping us make a compelling case for you.

Our staff of dedicated attorneys will help get you through the complicated legalities of collecting insurance benefits and pursuing what is due.
