In Davie Wrongful Death Suits Can Be a Challenge
Insurance companies often look to avoid a court case. Jury verdicts frequently favor the plaintiff and their awards can be sizable. They will generally attempt to have your case dismissed before it begins. Unfortunately Florida laws often favor insurance companies because of their powerful lobbyists.
In order to have a case your wrongful death lawsuit has to meet three criteria:
- The defendant’s conduct has to amount to a wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract or warranty.
- The conduct upon which the lawsuit is based must have caused the death of the decedent.
- The conduct that is the basis of the lawsuit would have entitled the person injured to file a lawsuit and recover damages if they had not died.
These three criteria can be difficult to prove. All the more reason you need a Davie wrongful death law firm in your corner that has the experience frightening insurance companies and winning fair and just settlements and verdicts.
