Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death

Of all the cases that our firm handles, wrongful death takes the greatest emotional toll on us as personal injury lawyers in Jacksonville, Florida.  After all, when a death occurs in a family there is no easy way to pick up the pieces and move on, and we feel for the grief experienced by our clients.

When a family member’s death is caused by the negligence of another, the first instinct isn’t necessarily to contact an attorney.  However, if the death of a family member was avoidable or was caused due to someone else’s negligence, it is possible for the surviving family members to obtain compensation or damages for the wrongful death.  If you believe that you may have a wrongful death case then it is very important for you to take legal action quickly. Our lawyers at Combs Greene are experienced in handling such wrongful death cases and will work diligently to achieve a fair result for you and your family.

Types of Cases That Can Result in Wrongful Death
The Florida Wrongful Death Act

The Florida Wrongful Death Act can be very confusing, and the types of damages available to the family members left behind depends on the age of the family member who died, and whether they had children or were married.  The damages available to parents and other survivors for the death of a family member may include: 

  • mental pain and suffering caused by the loss of the loved one – this is often referred to as grief damages
  • the value of lost support and services from the date of injury to the date of the child’s death
  • future lost support and services from the date of death reduced to present value
  • medical and funeral expenses of the child which the parents have paid

To determine if you have a wrongful death claim to assert, you need to speak with an attorney who is experienced in handling these types of cases.  The lawyers at Combs Greene bring a high level of experience, knowledge, and determination.
