Wrongful Death Attorneys in Jacksonville, FL
Compassionate Florida personal injury lawyers in Jacksonville, guiding families through a difficult time
A death in the family is never easy, but one that occurs because of a negligent or deliberate act of another is considered a wrongful death. The injustice, carelessness or irresponsibility of the negligent party — and knowing that your loved one would still be with you, had it not been for that carelessness — compounds the grief. Seek compassionate guidance from a wrongful death attorney at Fallgatter & Catlin, P.A.
Wrongful death leaves surviving families to deal with the financial burden of costly medical bills, lost income and funeral expenses in addition to the emotional trauma inflicted by the unnecessary death.
