If you’ve recently lost a loved one, odds are that the last thing on your mind is an Orlando wrongful death suit. Even if you believe that a person or party caused or contributed to the death of your beloved family member, you are focused on grieving, dealing with logistics and emotional mending.
Unfortunately, if you don’t take at least preliminary steps now to pave the way for potential legal action, you could find the process much more difficult later on – and you could face an uphill battle to collect compensation for medical bills and therapies, wages lost, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, and other counts.
The fact is that, in the days and weeks immediately following an accident, a potentially liable party will likely go to great lengths to distance himself or herself from the accident, cloud the investigative trail and otherwise make themselves bulletproof against a claim.
What are some examples of people who might liable for Orlando wrongful death?
- Truck driver who hit and killed your husband at an intersection — The trucker, his company, his insurer or even the mechanic responsible for tuning up his vehicle can all potential be held financially liable for your loss.
- Doctor who overprescribed a medication that led to complications that led to death — Physicians who fail to double-check a patient’s chart or who overprescribe or underprescribe medications or accidentally switch medications due to clerical error can be held liable. You can also bring suit against the hospital or against the hospital’s insurance company.
- Exposure to environmental toxins – Noxious pollutants, such as heavy metals or benzene in water, can cause acute reactions and even death in susceptible individuals. You can hold the polluter, the polluter’s insurance company, and other contributory parties liable for costs.
