If a loved one is killed due to the negligence of another, you’ll face a lot of emotional and financial challenges, including an untold amount of future expenses that you might not anticipate. But it doesn’t have to be your responsibility to bear the costs alone.
Whether it’s an individual, company, or agency, Raymond Ravis Attorney at Law can help you hold the responsible parties accountable and ensure that you’ll have the compensation and support you need to recover and rebuild your life.
There are many financial burdens that fall on surviving family members and these costs can easily overwhelm them.
That’s why it’s important for family members to call a personal injury attorney soon after a wrongful death so that they can worry about the costs while you tend to your family and allow yourself time to grieve. In some cases, the victim’s family may be entitled to punitive damages if the responsible party was grossly negligent in their responsibility for the accident.
Children, spouses, parents, and other dependent family members may seek damages for wrongful death in Florida.
Wrongful death can occur from nearly any type of accident, including:
Sometimes the responsible party in a wrongful death is not always evident. The bar that sold an obviously drunk patron another drink can be legally and morally responsible for the damage that patron caused from a drunk driving accident.

During this time, our team at Raymond Ravis Attorney at Law is prepared to help you every step of the way.
