Car Crashes in West Palm Beach
Florida, being one of the more dangerous states in the nation for drivers, sees more than 3,000 reported fatalities per year. Motorists should always ensure that they are operating their vehicles in a safe manner and in compliance with all traffic laws. Unfortunately, not all drivers use the appropriate care and caution and their actions can directly lead to serious injuries and death for innocent victims.
If you have lost a loved one to a Florida motorcycle accident, you are no doubt experiencing the toughest and most difficult time of your life. Nothing can mentally prepare a family member for the sudden loss and grief that accompanies such a tragedy. While no amount of money can replace your loss, you could be entitled to seek justice on behalf of your relative.
Under Florida law, a family member may initiate an action for wrongful death where their loved one was killed because of a negligent driver. Florida wrongful death law allows these cases to proceed and also allows victims to seek compensation for their losses. Some types of recoverable damages include funeral and medical bills, lost wages, loss of companionship, punitive damages, and potentially more.
