Losing a loved one is always agonizing. When someone's death is caused by the negligent wrongdoing of another, there is the chance that the at-fault party could be held legally responsible for damages in a court of law.
Sometimes first-responders make mistakes. Other times, it's doctors and nurses. On other occasions, the manufacturers of certain types of medical devices and equipment are to blame for the untimely loss of a patient receiving care.
Our South Florida law office knows survivors have many questions about who can be sued and how the process should play out.
If you have lost a loved one, and you believe it was because someone charged with their care did not live up to that responsibility, please contact us today.

Who Can File A Florida Wrongful Death Claim?
The claim is filed by the personal representative of the deceased person. Now generally that person's name is either a will or an estate plan.
If that doesn't happen then a court could actually name that person and figure out who that's going to be. That person files a claim on behalf of the surviving family members.
