Wrongful Death

Lyons, Snyder & Collin diligently represents families of wrongful death victims throughout the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Martindale AV rated personal injury attorneys Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder personally handle each claim to ensure that wrongful death victims receive the appropriate attention they deserve in their time of need.

Does my family have a wrongful death claim?

Wrongful Deaths are the result of the negligence, carelessness, or reckless act of another person or corporation. Some common causes of wrongful death are car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, drunk drivers, plane crashes, medical malpractice, construction accidents, fires, and defective products (product liability). Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder will personally meet with you to discuss your unique set of circumstances and provide an assessment on the value of the claim. By evaluating such factors as, the age and health of the deceased, the profession of the deceased, the insurance coverage available, loss of companionship, loss of love and affection of the surviving spouse, children, parents, and other surviving family members, we can give you a preliminary estimate of the possible value of your claim.

Insurance companies are not on your team.

If not exposed, the insurance adjuster handling your claim will try to persuade you to resolve the matter quickly, discouraging you from retaining a personal injury attorney. Insurance adjusters frequently offer minimal settlements offers that do not adequately compensate wrongful death victims. Insurance adjusters often neglect to inform wrongful death victims of the following compensation available such as:

  1. Compensation for your pain and suffering;
  2. Recovery of lost earnings of the decedent;
  3. Compensation for your loss of companionship;
  4. Reimbursement for burial and funeral expenses;
  5. Recovery of your present and future financial losses; and
  6. Reimbursement or payments of any medical expenses incurred.

Poor planning equals poor performance.

The first few weeks of any wrongful death claim are critical to a successful resolution. A case can suffer significant financial setbacks if evidence is not immediately preserved, pictures not taken, witnesses not located, records not retained, and statements provided in haste. Personal injury attorneys Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder utilize all resources available including, but not limited to, actuaries, accountants, accident reconstruction specialists, and private investigators to develop a thorough and well prepared claim. The personal injury lawyers at Lyons, Snyder & Collin fearlessly and aggressively challenge the insurance companies to obtain the best possible settlement for you and your family. Unlike many personal injury lawyers, Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder are not afraid to take your case to trial, when appropriate, if the insurance company submits an offer not commensurate with the claim.
