Compassionate Legal Service
At Phillips, Hayden & Labbee, LLP, we handle all types of personal injury claims, and many of these involve working with the families of those who have been seriously injured, perhaps even paralyzed for life. But none of this compares to the difficulty we see working with families of wrongful death victims. There is a particular sadness and frustration in losing someone you love when it was caused by someone else’s negligence. You deserve to be compensated for losses, and you deserve a measure of justice.
We understand that you are going through an extremely difficult time, and we are here to help you. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience handling wrongful death claims. From our offices in St. Petersburg and Clearwater, we represent the families of wrongful death victims throughout Florida. We will provide legal service marked with compassion, professionalism and a commitment to getting you the full measure of compensation available.
Wrongful Death Compensation
In Florida, the survivors of the deceased in a wrongful death action can receive:
- Lost wages throughout the projected lifespan of the deceased
- Loss of “net accumulations” of the estate if the person had lived on
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Burial expenses
- Value of the support and services provided by the deceased
- Loss of companionship, protection and guidance
- In cases involving the wrongful death of a child, mental and emotional pain and suffering
Most people have a difficult time thinking about money and lawsuits after someone close has died. However, for many families, the compensation obtained from a wrongful death claim is necessary to keep food on the table and continue providing for the family, especially if the deceased was the primary wage-earner in the family.
