The death of a loved one is always traumatic. When the death occurs as a result of someone else’s negligence or irresponsible actions the grief can feel even more severe. On top of the extreme emotional stress the loss of a loved one can leave family members in significant financial difficulty. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit with help from a reliable personal injury attorney can help lessen the financial burden and provide a sense of justice for the recovering family.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our Orlando wrongful death lawyers understand that no amount of money can ever bring your loved one back. But we strongly believe those whose negligence caused the death of another human being should be held responsible for their actions.

The best way to recover the funds you and your loved ones are in need of is through the acquisition of a local wrongful death attorney.
Family members of wrongful death victims often find a wrongful death lawsuit is a meaningful way to send a message to those whose actions caused such tragic harm. In many cases, a substantial financial verdict or settlement can encourage changes that may prevent others from suffering the same fate as your loved one.
In other cases, survivors simply must pursue a wrongful death claim in order to go on without the financial support their deceased loved one provided. If one wishes to win a wrongful death lawsuit, he or she must be able to prove the following:
