West Palm Beach Wrongful Death Attorneys
West Palm Beach attorneys seek compensation for your family's loss
It's hard enough to lose a family member. It is doubly difficult when that loss is due to the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another. The West Palm Beach wrongful death attorneys at Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin understand your pain and have the experience and skill to help you determine whether you have legal recourse under Florida law. We can help you and your family members recover the compensation to which the law entitles you by proving that a loved one's death was caused by another.
The Florida Wrongful Death Act protects your rights
The Florida Wrongful Death Act statutes establish the rules for wrongful death recovery. A West Palm Beach wrongful death attorney at our firm can answer your questions, explain how the process works, and handle all aspects of your case.
The laws define surviving family members as the spouse, children, parents, and other relatives who were partly or wholly dependent on your loved one's support. To enter into a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of your loved one, you must be a blood relative, adoptive brother or sister, or a child born out of wedlock to a mother or father with recognized child support responsibility.
Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin attorneys understand the terrible emotional and financial impact that a wrongful death can have on a family. That is why all of our firm's legal work in wrongful death cases is done on a contingency basis. If your case is accepted, you pay no attorney fees or expenses unless the case is resolved in your favor.
Obtaining compensation for clients in wrongful death cases
Our West Palm Beach wrongful death attorneys treat you with compassion and bring years of expertise to the table when negotiating settlements or trying wrongful death cases.
We have taken many wrongful death cases to successful results on behalf of clients. Several noteworthy cases involved auto accidents:
- In one tragic case, we obtained a confidential settlement for the family of a 19-year-old Florida State University student. The student had pulled onto the Florida Turnpike shoulder after witnessing a three-car accident and was rear-ended by an All-American Express tractor trailer, resulting in his death.
- We obtained a $2.85 million settlement on behalf of the family of a husband and father killed in Orlando by a professional athlete who was driving over 100 miles-per-hour and lost control of his car.
- Our lawyers represented the family of a mother of five who was killed when approaching the emergency lane after a tire blow out. The tractor-trailer driver who crashed into her car failed to change lanes or slow down. We took the case to verdict for $2 million.
- We reached a confidential settlement for an accident in Palm Beach where a tow-truck driver rear-ended a car, killing three small children, ages nine months, four, and five.
