Using the Legal System After a Loved One's Death
Few things bring more grief than the death of a family member or friend. When death is expected, we have time to prepare ourselves emotionally and say our final goodbyes. However when a loved one's death is caused by the negligent or careless actions of another person, it can be difficult to know how to move on.
For many people, holding the negligent party responsible is an important part of the grieving process. At Stenstrom, McIntosh, Colbert & Whigham, P.A., that is what we do for our clients. Our lawyers have been helping clients throughout Central Florida file wrongful death lawsuits since 1954.
Compensation for Your Loss
We know there is no amount of money that can bring your loved one back from the dead or remedy the situation. However, receiving financial compensation can alleviate some of the financial stress that comes with an unexpected loss. You may be able to receive compensation for:
• Medical bills: If your loved spent time in the hospital or needed medical treatment before their death, compensation may be available to cover the medical bills.
• Funeral expenses: The expenses for a funeral, burial, casket and service add up quickly. Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive compensation to cover those expenses.
• Loss of consortium: You may be able to receive compensation to acknowledge the loss of companionship you found in your loved one.
If your loved one's wrongful death was caused by medical malpractice, a car accident or another preventable situation, we can help bring justice to the situation.
