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 Scolaro 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 Scolaro 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.
