There are many accidents in Florida every year. These accidents can take place in one's home, at a store, at work, driving on the road, walking down the street and many other places. Some of the accidents do not result in serious injuries, but others result in life-changing injuries and even death. Fatal accidents are extremely difficult on the family and friends of the victim.
When a person suddenly dies in an accident, the family does not have a chance to prepare for it in any way. The family is forced to deal with the devastating emotional pain while trying to figure out how they will continue to live their life without the companionship of the loved one they just lost.
In addition to the emotional aspects of losing a loved one, if the victim earned the primary income for the family, simply trying to figure out how to pay for the mortgage, rent, utilities and food can be difficult. Also, there may have been medical costs as well as funeral costs associated with the death.
The family in these situations may want to seek compensation for things like medical and funeral costs, loss of income and other finances, pain and suffering and punitive damages against the person or entity who caused the death. While this compensation will not bring the loved one back or ease the emotional pain, it can help the family focus on the emotional healing without having to worry about the family's finances.
