Key West Wrongful Death Attorneys

Leesfield & Partners, Key West wrongful death attorneys, have been representing the victims of negligence for years. Our team of dedicated lawyers represents persons who have suffered serious injury or wrongful death, economic loss, personal loss and future damages due to negligence, including serious automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, defective equipment accidents, plane crash accidents, boating accidents, cruise ship accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents and medical negligence, including harmful drugs.

Wrongful death is considered to be a death that has occurred through the wrongful act or negligence of another. A wrongful death may arise from accidents, malpractice and or as the result of an intentional act.

A wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party is generally initiated by or on behalf of the spouse, children or family of the decedent, through their lawyer. In some unique situations, someone other than the deceased's immediate family are able to recover damages if they relied upon the deceased for support.

Recoverable damages in a Florida wrongful death case may include:

* Hospital and medical care
* Funeral and burial expenses
* Compensation for the financial aid the deceased would have provided in the future
* Compensation for the loss of companionship, affection, love and moral support the deceased would have provided

In addition to the Wrongful Death claim, the decedent's estate may, in certain cases, have a claim for medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering preceding death.

The law in this area is very complex and can involve many areas of the law. It is sometimes difficult to assess the damages due to their intangible nature. If you feel that someone close to you has suffered a wrongful death due to the negligence of another, seek the advice of a Florida wrongful death attorney.

The trial lawyers of Leesfield & Partners are experienced in handling wrongful death cases in Florida and can assist you in evaluating your personal situation.

I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
