Wrongful Death Car Accident
Anthony Quackenbush is a Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death Car Accident Lawyer who sympathizes with the loss of a loved one. Losing a family member or relative hurts terribly no matter the reason for the loss. When the loss of a loved one occurs due to a car accident, the sudden nature of the loss can make the pain even worse. Family members or relatives have no chance to prepare themselves for the grief which naturally occurs after such an event.
After such a loss, it may be hard to think of anything else other than the pain the family members or relatives are feeling. However, as time passes, the family members or relatives may begin to think about responsibility for the accident. Family members or relatives are entitled to compensation for their loss of a loved one caused by another driver. If they pursue such a case, the case would be referred to as a car accident wrongful death case.
If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of a car crash which occurred anyplace in the State of Florida, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death case on your loved one’s behalf. If you do so, an estate will have to be set up on your loved one’s behalf. A personal representative of the estate (usually a family member or relative) will have to be appointed. The personal representative will act as the “plaintiff” or person who is bringing the case.
Once the case settles or results in a verdict after trial, proceeds from the case will be distributed to the “survivors” of the person who tragically passed away (i.e., the decedent). These people are referred to as “beneficiaries” of the estate.
In a car wreck wrongful death case, only certain people can qualify as survivors and receive proceeds from the case. These include spouses, children, parents, siblings related by blood or any family member or relative financially dependent on the decedent at the time of his or her death. That is, any family member or relative can receive proceeds from the case if the decedent was supporting that person financially at the time of his or her death.
The survivors can be compensated for their own pain and suffering as well as the loss of any financial support that was given to them by the decedent.
One thing to be aware of is that the statute of limitations in a wrongful death case is only two-years. This means that, if your loved one passed away as a result of a car wreck, you only have two-years to file a lawsuit on behalf of the family. If you don’t do so, the case will be forever barred. In a typical car collision case, the statute of limitations is four-years. But, if somebody died in the crash, then the statute is only two years. So, this is something to be aware of. You don’t want to delay and wait until the last minute to file your lawsuit.
