Fatal Car Accidents
Auto accidents happen every year on the streets and highways of southwestern Florida. Sadly, sometimes those accidents result in fatal injuries. Loved ones are left to grieve and some families are left without providers. The auto accident attorneys at Farrow & Pulice, P.A. help families get justice for their loved ones.
Losing a loved one in a car accident is especially hard when the accident was the result of another party’s negligence. If the driver had acted responsibly, the accident would not have happened. Our attorneys know how to build strong cases that hold negligent parties accountable.
The thought of taking legal action may not be the most important thing on your mind right now. That’s perfectly understandable. Your entire family is in mourning and you are all still trying to come to terms with your loss. But for many families, taking the first steps to hold negligent parties accountable is an important step in moving forward.
We’re here for your family
It’s also important to remember that time is a key factor when seeking justice for a loved one. The statute of limitations for a filing a wrongful death lawsuit in Florida is two years. But the sooner we can start the process, the better. Over time, evidence can be lost or destroyed, and the memories of witnesses can fade.
We want your main focus to be on your family during this difficult time. After our initial meeting, we will get right to work. We’ll investigate your loved one’s accident to find out what really happened. Our team knows where to look for evidence that proves a driver’s negligence caused your loved one’s accident.
Different types of negligence can lead to a fatal car accident. The driver may have been speeding or driving recklessly. Other types of negligence include distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, and falling asleep at the wheel.
Experienced, compassionate representation that gets results
It can take time to build a wrongful death case. Drivers rarely admit doing anything wrong and often don’t accept responsibility. Insurance companies look for ways that they can pay as little as possible. Our attorneys know the types of obstacles that can be put up when pursuing these cases. And we know how to overcome them to get justice for your family.
The damages we can seek for your family include:
- funeral expenses
- certain medical expenses
- loss of earnings
- income and benefits.
Many times, when the insurance company sees that we have built a strong case based on the facts and are prepared to fight them in court, they agree to negotiate a settlement. But we are not interested in making a quick settlement that helps the insurance company save money. Our goal is to reach a resolution of your case that truly meets your needs.
When you are ready, call us at 866-408-1220 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our experienced wrongful death attorneys. We can review the details of your loved one’s car accident, go over your legal options and answer your questions.
