Fatal Auto Accident Damages for You and Your Family

As a surviving family member, you are entitled to compensation both for the losses experienced by your loved one and for the consequences you experienced due to their passing. We can go over what these are, even going so far as to break down each loss and expense to ensure it’s accounted for in your damages.

Did They Leave Behind Expenses and Experience Losses?

The costs eligible for compensation didn’t kick in only after your loved one passed away. If your family member succumbed to their injuries months or even years after the accident, our Orlando wrongful death lawyers seek compensation for all their accident-related medical costs before and after their death.

In other words, any expenses related to care and remembrance are eligible:

  • Emergency medical intervention
  • Consultations with specialists
  • End-of-life healthcare and support
  • Funeral and memorial services
  • Burial or cremation costs

We can also seek compensation for any pain and suffering they experienced. 

Did They Provide Income for Your Family?

We can seek lost income damages covering what they lost while they were undergoing treatment as well as what your family will lose now that they can no longer provide for you. Even if your loved one was not the primary breadwinner of your family, they still provided some financial support that you now no longer have. 

Did You Lose Support and Guidance?

Your own pain and suffering counts as a compensable loss. If you are a parent who lost a child, that unique grief is acknowledged through specialized damages. Likewise, spouses receive financial considerations for losing a partner in life and/or in parenting. Surviving children are compensated for losing guidance and advice.

Common Questions About Fatal Motor Vehicle Accident Cases

The legal team at Bogin, Munns & Munns can answer any of your questions during your free consultation, but below are some common queries about fatal auto injury cases. 

Can Family Members File for Wrongful Death?

Who can file for wrongful death in Orlando is different from some other states, where certain family members file the lawsuit. According to Florida Statutes § 768.20, a personal representative for the deceased’s estate files. Sometimes this is a family member, while at other times it’s a court-appointed representative. Regardless, named family members benefit from the lawsuit. 

What Is the Deadline for a Fatal Car Accident Lawsuit?

Florida Statutes § 95.11 states that you can file for wrongful death up to two years after the person’s passing. Please note that the clock doesn’t start with the accident itself. While this is the law, it doesn’t always apply to each case the same way—some circumstances lengthen or shorten the timeline. Check with us to make sure. 

What Accident Causes Are Grounds for a Case?

Car accidents are caused by a myriad of factors, so don’t hesitate to reach out for legal help if you aren’t sure what happened. We investigate what negligence was at play. 

Some driving behaviors considered negligent:

  • Driving while drunk, drowsy, or drugged
  • Wrong-way driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Illegal or improper turns
  • Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
  • Failing to check before turning, merging, or changing lanes
  • Running red lights or ignoring signs

We also consider whether other forms of negligence contributed:

  • Lack of proper hiring, training, or oversight by trucking companies
  • Improper loading or handling of cargo by cargo companies
  • Poor road maintenance by government entities or property owners 
  • Product liability like defective parts, design flaws, or marketing mistakes
  • Mistakes made by auto shops when performing maintenance or installing parts

Your loved one’s fatal crash could have been a combination of several of these factors and liable parties. We check every possibility.
