Orlando Wrongful Death Attorney

Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer

The death of a loved one is always traumatic. When the death occurs as a result of someone else’s negligence or irresponsible actions the grief can feel even more severe. On top of the extreme emotional stress the loss of a loved one can leave family members in significant financial difficulty. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can help lessen the financial burden and provide a sense of justice for the recovering family.

At The Umansky Law Firm, our wrongful death claim attorneys understand that no amount of money can ever bring your loved one back. But we strongly believe those whose negligence caused the death of another human being should be held responsible for their actions.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

One would assume that any kind of death of a loved one warrants the pursual of a wrongful death lawsuit; however, the term “wrongful” carries as much weight as the term “death” when identifying qualifying instances. If your case fails to meet the criteria for a legal claim, it is unlikely a lawyer will accept your case. It is for this reason why you should be aware of which types of incidents merit wrongful death claims. Some of the most common causes of  wrongful death include:

Wrongful death claims can be pursued during a criminal case, but there are often instances when they occur afterward. In either instance, similar evidence is used to prove all elements and occasionally there are instances when the representing attorney is unable to get a favorable ruling for the overarching charge but succeeds in securing compensation for a wrongful death claim.  The best way to recover the funds you and your loved ones are in need of is through the acquisition of a local wrongful death attorney.

Pursuing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Family members of wrongful death victims often find a wrongful death lawsuit is a meaningful way to send a message to those whose actions caused such tragic harm. In many cases, a substantial financial verdict or settlement can encourage changes that may prevent others from suffering the same fate as your loved one.

In other cases, survivors simply must pursue a wrongful death claim in order to go on without the financial support their deceased loved one provided. If one wishes to win a wrongful death lawsuit, he or she must be able to prove the following:

  • A human being died
  • The death resulted from death or malicious intent
  • Family members are suffering financially as a result of the individual’s passing
  • A personal representative was appointed for the individual’s estate

Construction Worker Injury Case

The Umansky Law Firm took the case of a young father who was a construction worker injured while on the job. Our client’s injury was sustained while constructing a new home in an up and coming subdivision. After an investigation, the lawyers at the Umansky Law Firm determined that the construction company had failed to install a barricade on the second floor of the new home to keep the workers safe. Due to this negligence, our client fell and sustained severe injuries. Our client fractured his leg and had to undergo two surgeries due to the accident. As a result of the operations, our client — the family’s primary wage earner — missed several months of work. The Umansky Law Firm demanded that the named defendants take responsibility for their negligence, but they refused. As a result, we filed suit and vigorously pursued a claim against their insurance coverage and successfully reached a six-figure settlement.
