If you have lost a loved one, filing a lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind. You are still dealing with the emotional loss and trying to take care of your family during this very tragic and difficult time. Unfortunately, in addition to the emotional loss you have experienced, you will probably also face significant financial loss as well. While no amount of money will ever replace the one you lost, the compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit can help ease the financial burden.
Our team here at Gregory Law Firm in Jacksonville, FL, knows that you are suffering a great loss, and we want to help by seeking justice on your behalf and the behalf of your lost loved one. A wrongful death attorney can hold the party responsible for your loved one’s death accountable for his or her actions, which we always hope will help with some degree of closures in addition to the compensation for your financial losses.

What is a Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death claims are filed by the survivor or survivors of an individual who has died as the result of the negligence or misconduct of another party. The Florida Wrongful Death Act allows family members who lose a loved one (due to the wrongful acts of another) to seek monetary compensation. A wrongful death action provides financial support to survivors who depended on the deceased for financial support.
We have been representing clients in wrongful death actions since 1979. Our trial experience and strong negotiating skills help us get justice for families who have lost loved ones.
Survivors who may file a wrongful death lawsuit include the decedent’s spouse, child and parent as well as dependents. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help you determine which family members have the legal right to file a wrongful death action under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act.
Wrongful Death Cases
A wrongful death occurs when a party causes the death of another through a negligent, reckless, or deliberate act. The elements of a wrongful death case include establishing that the at-fault party had a duty of care, that the party breached the duty of care, and the wrongful actions caused the death of the decedent. Wrongful death lawsuits can arise from a variety of personal injury cases including but not limited to:
- Automobile accidents
- Boating accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Large trucking accidents
- Products liability cases
- Premise liability cases
