The loss of a loved one can be one of life’s most devastating experiences. When this death is caused by the negligent act of another person it is known as a fatality or wrongful death. Wrongful death can occur in the context of many events, accidents or injuries. When a person has been killed by the negligent act of another person, the surviving spouse, children, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters of the deceased person are able to make a claim for damages.

The categories of damages in a wrongful death case are as follows:

  • Loss of guidance care and companionship that the deceased person would have provided to the surviving family members
  • Loss of financial support the deceased would have provided
  • Loss of service the deceased would have provided to family members, such as household and homemaking chores
  • Expenses associated with the funeral and burial of the deceased, as well as other out-of-pocket expenses
  • The loss of income suffered by grieving family members

If your family member died in a fatal car accident or as a result of another person’s negligent act, the lawyers of McLeish Orlando are available to help. We take a personal interest in our clients and do everything we can to help them through this difficult time.

Some of our clients pursue wrongful death claims because they cannot survive financially without the income of the deceased. Others hope to encourage more responsible behaviour that could help prevent similar tragedies in the future.
