Riviera Beach Wrongful Death Lawyers
When family members undergo routine medical procedures, we expect them to come home in better condition than they were in before. We certainly do not expect them to face life-threatening complications while under the care of experienced doctors.
Likewise, it’s reasonable to assume that loved ones will make it to their destination safely after getting behind the wheel. It’s also reasonable to assume that the stairs in front of their building are sturdy and their employers follow all industry safety standards.
Such assumptions are usually right, but when they happen to be wrong, the consequences can be devastating. Medical malpractice, motor-vehicle collisions, and slip and fall accidents are just a few of the most common ways to sustain unintentional injuries, which are a leading cause of death in the United States.
If your relative died because of someone else’s negligence, your family may be entitled to compensation for all resulting damages. Contact Donaldson & Weston to determine how best to proceed.

Typically, a family will have grounds for a wrongful death claim if the deceased would have had a valid personal injury claim had he or she survived the incident that ultimately proved to be fatal. In most cases, that means negligence must have played a role in the accident; however, criminal violence and defective products can also give rise to valid wrongful death claims.
If you have any reason to believe that negligence played a role in your loved one’s death, it is worth talking to a personal injury lawyer at Donaldson & Weston. We offer free consultations, so you have nothing to lose by speaking to an attorney at our firm.How Much Is My Case Worth?
It is wise to enter the proceedings with an ideal settlement amount in mind so you can determine if the opposing party’s initial offer is remotely close to fair. Your wrongful death attorney will begin the claim by tallying any costs you have incurred as a result of the loss and then calculating an acceptable figure for all non-economic damages; however, there is no way to predict how a case might evolve once the proceedings are underway.
Even the most experienced lawyers cannot promise to achieve a particular outcome for clients because the claims process is inherently complicated. During your first meeting, you might discuss potential outcomes based on the facts of the case and local statutes, but a reputable attorney will not guarantee any kind of payout.Speak with a Riviera Beach Wrongful Death Attorney Today!
