Seeking Justice For Your Loss

When a life is tragically cut short due to the negligence or misconduct of another, a wrongful death claim may arise. This type of legal action seeks justice by having the liable party provide financial compensation for the survivors and hold the responsible parties accountable. In Florida, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate, often a close family member, is authorized to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased’s beneficiaries and estate, but they will need help from skilled legal representation.

At the Panama City office of McCauley Law Offices, P.A., we are here to help clients through the hardship of losing a loved one to a tragic accident. We know there is no amount of money that can bring back your loved one, but you still deserve a financial safety net to help make ends meet after losing a loved one.

Who Is Eligible To File A Wrongful Death Claim?

While the loss of a loved one can affect both friends and family alike, the law only allows certain people to file a claim. Typically, this includes the personal representative of the deceased’s estate, who brings the claim to benefit the deceased’s spouse, children and sometimes parents, as well as a family member who was dependent on the decedent’s support.

Fair Compensation In Wrongful Death Cases

We explore all available options of negotiation and litigation to maximize the compensation our clients earn in these claims. Our experience has also taught us how to identify and reject lowball settlement offers to earn something our clients deserve. This can include funeral and burial expenses, lost wages and benefits, loss of companionship, emotional distress and the pain and suffering endured by the deceased before their passing.

Wrongful death can occur in a multitude of ways, from truck and motorcycle accidents to premises liability issues and slip-and-fall accidents. Each case is unique, and the nature of the accident can impact the wrongful death claim significantly. No matter what may have caused the loss of a loved one, we are prepared to stand by your side through every step of your compensation claim.
