Coral Gables Wrongful Death Lawyer

After a wrongful death, many survivors struggle to carry on. The Coral Gables wrongful death lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law can help these survivors obtain the compensation and justice they need to pick up the pieces of their lives.

Compensation in a wrongful death case usually includes money for pecuniary losses, such as funeral and burial costs, final medical bills, lost future financial support, the decedent’s pain and suffering, and lost future emotional support. Survivors may be entitled to compensation for their own grief and suffering, in some cases.

In the wrongful death context, justice means holding responsible parties accountable for the injuries they negligently caused. Ideally, these responsible parties would step up to the plate and do the right thing. When that does not happen, and it usually does not happen, attorneys file legal actions and force negligent parties to face the music.

Why Do You Need a Coral Gables Wrongful Death Lawyer?

When a sudden and unexpected wrongful death strikes a family, legal action is usually the last thing on anyone’s mind. But quite simply, there’s no other way to obtain compensation and justice, at least in most cases. Without these things, the wrongful death is an open and festering emotional wound.

Even if another party was clearly negligent, wrongful death claims are almost impossible to win without an attorney. Some examples of negligently-caused wrongful death include:

  • Car Wrecks: Unintentional injuries, like car crash injuries, are the leading cause of death for people under 45. Advanced safety devices, like seatbelts and airbags, simply cannot absorb all the force that a high-speed collision generates.
  • Falls: A slip-and-fall injury normally isn’t too serious for a younger person with no pre-existing conditions. But these incidents are usually fatal otherwise. If the victim was particularly vulnerable for some reason, such as age or overall health, a Coral Gables wrongful death lawyer can still obtain maximum compensation.
  • Drug Overdoses: Many parties could be responsible for an unintentional poisoning death, especially a prescription drug overdose or misuse. Frequently, doctors write prescriptions without asking questions, and drug shipping companies do the same thing when they transport controlled substances. Manufacturers that produce and sell dangerously addictive medicines could be responsible as well.

The average attorney-negotiated settlement in a wrongful death case is about three times higher than the average non-attorney-negotiated wrongful death settlement.

Finding the Right Attorney

Almost any lawyer can negotiate a favorable settlement in a straightforward wrongful death case. The survivors usually have sympathy on their side. But straightforward cases are few and far between, and only an experienced, dedicated, and accessible lawyer can negotiate a favorable settlement in such matters.

Experience means more than years of experience. Many lawyers practice law for many years and still have poor litigation skills. Your attorney should have a successful track record.

A dedicated lawyer does not look for a quick settlement or an easy way out. A dedicated lawyer is committed to maximum compensation. An accessible lawyer promptly addresses any questions or concerns. Accessible lawyers do not delegate such tasks to paralegal or other office assistants.
