Wrongful Death

When You Have Lost a Family Member in Florida

Nothing in life can bring more pain and anguish than the loss of a loved one. Whether it was a spouse, parent or child, the loss will change a family forever. While no amount of money can bring a loved one back, the family of a person whose death was caused by another’s negligence is entitled to compensation for their loss. At The Law Offices of Michael R. Herron, P.A., in Tampa, Florida, our lawyers help surviving family members of people killed in accidents file wrongful death lawsuits in Florida courts.

Calculating the Damage Done to Your Family

Damages in wrongful death cases are often based on economic factors such as the value of the victim’s lost future income and services. Because of the complexity involved in calculating the value of the victim’s lost services and future income, we often utilize experts such as accountants and economists to ensure our clients obtain damages that fully compensate them for their losses.

In wrongful death cases, full compensation also includes funeral expenses, lost income, hospital bills, loss of consortium and companionship and, in some cases, punitive damages to punish the negligent party.
