Orlando Wrongful Death Lawyer
Filing Wrongful Death Claims in Florida
No one is ever prepared for the effects of an accident, but it is even more shocking when an accident results in a fatality. When someone loses his or her life in an accident, the surviving family members are left to mourn the tragic death and to suffer through the emotional and financial difficulties that follow.
Such suffering deserves compensation of some kind, although nothing can truly make up for the loss of a loved one's life. Wrongful death claims allow the surviving family members of fatal accident victims to obtain justice and fair compensation.
Wrongful death damages include, but are not limited to:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical bills incurred before death
- Loss of income
- Loss of companionship / consortium
- Grief counseling fees
- Emotional pain and suffering
What Are Common Causes of Wrongful Death?

- And all other kinds of accidents can all result in the death of an innocent victim

What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit Loan?
Contrary to what it might sound like, a wrongful death lawsuit loan has nothing to do with paying your lawyer — the wrongful death lawyers of Florida exclusively work on a contingent fee basis, so if they lose your case, you don't have to pay them at all.
Rather, such a loan is essentially a loan against your lawsuit's presumed future payout. It is important to note that in order to get a wrongful death lawsuit loan, you must already be in settlement negotiations.
What Are the Benefits of a Wrongful Death Lawsuit Loan?
The biggest benefit of a wrongful death lawsuit loan is simple, you have bills to pay, and if the family breadwinner has recently passed away, you have no income to pay them with. Such a loan will give you the money you need today in case the lawsuit drags on for months or years.
Wrongful death lawsuit loans can also help you hold out for a bigger settlement, instead of being forced to accept a settlement out of desperation
