Clermont Wrongful Death Lawyer
Clermont Wrongful Death Law Firm Securing Compensation for clients Injured in Clermont and surrounding areas.
Losing a loved one is never an easy thing to experience. But losing a loved one may be even more traumatic if the death is unexpected and would not have occurred but for the irresponsible actions of another party. If this is the case, you may be able to file a wrongful death action against the responsible party and recover compensation for your losses. At the Benenati Law Firm, our compassionate Clermont wrongful death lawyers can help you to understand your rights and assist you in navigating wrongful death laws in our state.
When Can I File a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death action is permitted under Florida statute when the wrongful act, neglect, or default of one person leads to the death of another. In order to recover compensation in a wrongful death claim, a plaintiff must prove that:
- The defendant owed the deceased a duty of care;
- The duty of care was breached;
- The breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of the decedent’s death; and
- Damages resulted.
Proving each of these elements, especially negligence (breach of duty of care) and causation (that the negligence was the cause of death), can be difficult. An experienced attorney can assist you in gathering the evidence that is necessary to win a wrongful death lawsuit and maximize your damages award.
Can Anyone File a Wrongful Death Suit?
No – wrongful death actions can only be filed by certain parties. Specifically, Florida law allows for a spouse, children, or parents of a deceased person to file a wrongful death action, or a party (sibling or blood relative) who was dependent upon the decedent.
Damages Recoverable in a Wrongful Death Action
Nothing can fully compensate a person who suffers the loss of a loved one, but filing a civil action can help to provide financial relief. A plaintiff in a wrongful death action may seek damages for:
- The value of lost support and services of the deceased;
- Loss of companionship and protection;
- Loss of parental companionship and instruction;
- Mental pain and suffering;
- Medical expenses;
- Funeral and burial expenses; and
- Loss of earning of the deceased.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

“We were very impressed with professionalism no matter who we spoke to when we called the office. We were always treated with respect and kindness. The process was very smooth and there were no surprises. The whole procedure was explained beforehand and the process was exactly as explained. We were very embarrassed at having to file bankruptcy but Mr. Benenati and his staff always made us feel at ease and helped us to maintain our dignity through a very difficult time. We cannot thank them enough for helping us to get a fresh start!”
