Wrongful Death

Proven Jacksonville Beach Lawyer Advises on Wrongful Death Actions

Accomplished Northeast Florida attorney helps bereaved families seek justice

Wrongful death cases involve a death caused by someone else’s negligent or intentional misconduct. Under Florida wrongful death statutes and case law, heirs and dependents of the deceased are authorized to seek damages for the wrongful death of the decedent. At my Jacksonville Beach firm, Bruce A. Gartner, P.A., I assist clients throughout northeast Florida who seek a measure of justice against the people and businesses responsible for the death of their loved one. In cases involving car crashes, unsafe premises, defective products and other fatal instances of negligence and wrongdoing, my firm presses for a result that helps clients gain a measure of relief.

Skillful advocate handles claims arising from car crashes and unsafe premises

Litigating a wrongful death claim involves many of the same legal and factual issues that are present in personal injury matters. I’ll review the facts of your situation thoroughly to help establish legal liability for fatalities associated with:

  • Auto accidents — My firm guides families through insurance proceedings and litigation when someone dies in a vehicle crash.
  • Unsafe premises — When a lack of security, failure to identify a hazard or some other type of property owner negligence has fatal consequences, I press for a full financial recovery.
  • Defective products — Businesses that introduce products into the marketplace have a duty to prevent deadly flaws. If someone in your family died due to a defect in the design, manufacture or labeling of a product, I’ll develop a strategy to collect appropriate damages.

Starting with a free initial consultation, my firm delivers comprehensive counsel so that surviving family members and estate representatives have the best chance to hold the faulty parties accountable.

Dedicated firm pursues full compensation for loved ones

A wrongful death is tragic, and nothing can reverse the harm that was done, but my firm fights passionately to help address your loss through damages that are available under Florida law. These can include:

  • Financial support — Wages and benefits that the decedent would have earned over their lifetime are compensable. My firm will make sure that key items are not overlooked when seeking reimbursement.
  • Household services — A death puts more pressure on surviving family members to take care of chores, childcare and other household duties.
  • Loss of love, companionship and moral support — It might seem impossible to put a figure on the love and companionship that someone provides, but I can outline how these determinations have been handled in similar cases.
  • Final expenses — Medical expenses and funeral costs can place a severe strain on loved ones left behind. That is why I work promptly to obtain repayment for these costs in a settlement or in court.

With extensive knowledge of Chapter 768 of the Florida Statutes, I can give you a prompt evaluation of your circumstances so you can make informed decisions on how to proceed.
