A Wrongful Death claim is a civil lawsuit that may be brought to court when the negligence or wrongful act of one party causes the death of another person. If you have had a loved one killed by the thoughtlessness of others regardless of whether by an automobile accident, fall, medical malpractice, assault, or any carelessness, you may have a wrongful death claim. There are several Florida Statutes that can apply to these situations and it is important to get good legal advice as to whether a claim can be brought. MOST IMPORTANT, YOU MAY HAVE A SHORTER PERIOD OF TIME TO BRING A WRONGFUL DEATH ACTION THAN OTHER TYPES OF CASES. ACT QUICKLY!
Though pursuing a lawsuit will not bring your loved one back, the attorneys at Cutler Rader will work to ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions. You may be able to recover both economic and noneconomic damages for the death of a loved one.

Some of the prior Wrongful Death Verdicts and Settlements handled by Mr. Cutler and/or Mr. Rader:
$2,700,000 combined settlement
$2,700,000 settlement for the family of an elderly woman who was strangled to death in her nursing home bed when a defective bedrail pinned her head between the bedrail and the mattress. The defendant in this case had been warned about the same bedrail problem in an earlier case from another state; yet failed to remedy the problem. This case forced the defendant to take preventative measures all across the country.
Over $2,000,000 settlement
Over $2,000,000 settlement for the family of an unmarried woman pedestrian who was tragically killed when she was run over by a truck.
There have been several other very substantial recoveries for clients.
