Palm Beach Wrongful Death Attorneys – Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, P.L.
In terms of the law, a wrongful death claim is when a person loses their life due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company, or entity. Accidents that cause injuries can also potentially cause fatalities. It’s nothing short of a tragedy knowing a loved one’s death could have been avoided. When a death occurs in these types of situations, the resulting lawsuit is deemed a wrongful death claim. Taking action against the negligent party cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help begin the healing process and may get you the compensation that you deserve for your loss.
