How an Ocala Wrongful Death Lawyer From Our Firm Can Help

Signing a Contract After a Successful Agreement

Since 1971, Meldon Law has tirelessly advocated for grieving families in and around Ocala. We’re honored that you would consider entrusting us with your case. Throughout our partnership, we aim to promote your case’s outcome by:

  • Investigating the accident that caused your loved one’s fatal injuries
  • Collecting evidence, including accident reports, traffic citations, medical records, etc.
  • Speaking to eyewitnesses and gathering information

When other parties deal with us, we’re a force to be reckoned with. Some insurance companies even back down entirely once they see we’re handling a case.

Our Firm Establishes That Negligence Led to Your Loved One’s Passing

Most wrongful death cases hinge on the legal concept of negligence. This means, to hold another party financially accountable for your losses, we must prove how their actions led to your loved one’s passing. Using evidence, such as the accident report and accident reconstruction data, we can assert:

  • The at-fault party owed your loved one a duty of care. This means they had an obligation to act with reasonable caution and prevent harm from befalling others.
  • The at-fault party acted without care or regard for others’ safety.
  • They caused your loved one’s fatal accident.
  • You have damages resulting from your loved one’s passing, such as funeral and burial costs.

You don’t have to learn about proving negligence in a wrongful death case. Our lawyers in Ocala can manage your case’s obligations from start to finish. You don’t have to worry about anything.

Funeral, Sad, and Woman with a Flower on the Coffin After the Loss of a Loved One, Family, or Friend

Florida Statute § 768.19 states that if a deceased individual could have filed a personal injury claim had they survived their injuries, a personal representative can seek damages. This person is generally named in the decedent’s will or assigned by the state. The personal representative seeks compensation on behalf of the decedent’s spouse, children, parents, and other beneficiaries.
