Hobe Sound Wrongful Death Lawyers

Hobe Sound Wrongful Death Lawyers When someone’s reckless or negligent behavior causes a preventable accident, those who get hurt have the right to hold the liable party financially accountable for their damages. In scenarios when the injuries prove to be fatal, the deceased’s surviving family members may pursue compensation for their losses.

By filing a wrongful death claim, certain relatives may be able to secure a settlement that will cover both economic and non-economic damages. As with any tort claim, though, there are strict statutes governing virtually every aspect of the proceedings including which family members are entitled to the compensation and how long the personal representative of the estate has to file a lawsuit.

Since even a minor oversight at any stage of the claims process can jeopardize the entire case, it is wise to seek counsel from seasoned injury attorneys. If you are looking for reputable wrongful death lawyers in Hobe Sound, contact Donaldson & Weston.

We show our valued clients that we care by listening carefully, responding to all inquiries promptly, and fighting relentlessly on their behalf. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

An attorney who practices with integrity will never promise to secure a particular outcome for a client. Although he or she can calculate what a fair settlement might look like based on the facts of the case, there is no way to guarantee a specific result.

In the state of Florida, a wrongful death claim can include compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical expenses incurred after the accident;
  • Funeral and burial expenses;
  • Loss of household income and benefits;
  • Loss of anticipated lifetime earnings and inheritances;
  • Mental anguish; and
  • Loss of companionship, guidance, and protection.
We Will Ensure the Insurance Company Treats You Fairly

The defendant’s insurance provider may seem sympathetic, but at the end of the day, it has financial incentive to dispute liability and damages. Even in cases when fault is obvious and you have strong evidence to prove it, insurance adjusters are not above employing devious or bullying tactics to arrive at the smallest settlement possible.

Fortunately, you will not go up against the opposing party alone if you hire a wrongful death attorney from Donaldson & Weston. We will handle all interactions with the insurance adjuster on your behalf so you can focus on taking care of your family in the wake of the loss. We are not afraid to take on even the largest corporations, and we will not let them intimidate us into settling for anything less than what you deserve.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
