Caring, Effective Legal Counsel After A Fatality In Your Family
A fatal car accident or any other type of accident resulting in someone’s death is naturally shocking and distressing. Surviving family members often feel overwhelmed by several aspects at once, including:
- How to pay for final medical expenses, if applicable
- How to handle the person’s estate and insurance issues at the same time that a family is in mourning
- How to pay for funeral and burial costs
- How to help young children – if applicable – adjust to the sudden loss of a parent
Financial, practical and emotional issues after a sudden accidental death are tough for a spouse, parent or child, especially. Other family members, such as siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles may also be profoundly affected by the loss.
Legal issues typically pertain primarily to a spouse, child or parent. To determine whether you qualify to bring a wrongful death claim in Florida, consult with one of our attorneys at Amethyst Law Group.
