Wrongful Death Attorneys

Death is a natural part of life, but when a loved one has died due to the fault or gross negligence of another it can be a tragedy for surviving family members. A person who loses their life due to the fault or gross negligence of another is the innocent victim of a "wrongful death."

Long after a fatal accident, family members feel the loss of a loved one who died because of the negligence or acts of others. The wrongful death lawyers of Leesfield Scolaro understand the pain felt by survivors and offer compassionate representation in wrongful death litigation, representing clients throughout the Miami, South Florida area and nationwide.

If you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death in the Miami area, you and other family members may be eligible for damages. Under Florida law, family members can collect economic damages for medical and funeral expenses, as well as non-economic damages for loss of companionship of the family member and emotional suffering. It is important to contact Miami wrongful death attorneys as soon as possible for a prompt investigation of the circumstances of death and the preservation of evidence.

Pursuing a wrongful death action will not bring your loved one back to you, but it will ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. Our Miami wrongful death attorneys will consult with you about your wrongful death case and help you through the legal process. We will work tirelessly to ensure that no death was in vain and that those who were dependent on their deceased loved ones are provided for in the future.

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
