Wrongful Death

Our Florida law firm provides unsurpassed aggressive legal representation for family members who have lost loved ones due to negligence of others. We offer compassionate legal counsel to spouses, parents, and children in claims involving preventable fatal accidents. Leesfield & Partners handles wrongful death claims against medical providers, auto manufacturers, airlines, drivers, and their insurance companies. Each loss is unique and extremely painful for the surviving family members. 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.

There is nothing that can replace a father, mother or child. No system of justice can ever hope to fill that void and heal the wounds. However, survivors have rights under out system of justice and we will work to secure the maximum financial recovery allowed by law in such cases. Over the years our firm has secured wrongful death verdicts and settlements all throughout Florida and the United States. Families have trusted us with the responsibility and obligation to secure their future just as a late husband would have. We have helped families recover for the loss of their children and set up memorials honoring them.

The attorneys place special emphasis on obtaining the maximum damages for clients at the same time seeking to obtain changes in policy and standards that bring greater safety to our society. In adopting such a practice of law, Leesfield & Partners has for over 45 years successfully represented thousands of clients and gained a nationwide reputation for its experience, legal knowledge and strategy. For example in a recent case where we represent victims of carbon monoxide poisoning at a hotel, our firm lead the way in enacting a law that now requires hotels to install carbon monoxide detectors in their hotels so that guests and staff would be warned the moment there is a leak.

The firm has obtained some of the highest wrongful death verdicts and settlements in the United States, including a $10.2 million verdict (at the time the nation's largest verdict for a single death) and several settlements and judgments in excess of $3 million, including a recent settlement of $5.25 million for an electrocution death and $8 million for head trauma injury in an aviation accident. We represent the legal rights and financial needs of survivors in litigation involving preventable auto accident deaths, aviation accidents, and other fatal accidents.

Client Reviews
I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
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

Our family highly recommends the team at Leesfield & Partners. Every step of the way, Barbie Leon was there to make sure we were updated on the progress of the case as well as answer any questions we had. Barbie was in constant communication with our family. She is thoughtful and caring and worked hard to make sure we understood everything that was happening around us. Linda
