Pembroke Pines is the second largest city in Broward County, and as such, there are many hazardous situations that can occur that could result in a wrongful death. When the loss of a loved one is due to the negligence or recklessness of an individual, business, or organization, the grief, and anger experienced by surviving family members can be paralyzing. In such circumstances, the legal services of a wrongful death attorney can help.

In the case of a death due to such factors as another person’s reckless driving, hazardous property conditions, medical malpractice, faulty merchandise, or other preventable causes, Florida law makes it possible for some immediate family members to receive financial compensation for their loss. A wrongful death claim may help surviving family members to recover money for medical costs, funeral expenses, lost potential income of the deceased, pain and suffering, and even punitive damages. Although financial compensation will not relieve the grief caused by such a sudden and tragic loss, winning a wrongful death settlement or court case can relieve financial burdens for surviving family and can help provide closure by bringing those responsible to justice.


Wrongful death cases can be complicated legal proceedings, and there is a statute of limitations in Florida that limits the time in which a claim can be filed against the responsible party. Because of this, it is vitally important for claimants to begin the process as quickly as possible after a fatality has occurred. Immediately following the unexpected death of a loved one, most people are struggling to deal with their own grief and that of friends and families – and are at a loss as to what steps they need to take to protect their interests and legal rights. A well-qualified wrongful death attorney can guide surviving family members through all of the paperwork and legal hoops to get the wrongful death case rolling before the statute of limitations expires or valuable evidence is misplaced or destroyed.

In wrongful death cases, claimants have to prove beyond doubt that the fatality was not simply a freak accident or the fault of the victim, but that it was specifically caused by the negligence or recklessness of the defendant, or of faulty products or equipment. This requires meticulous information collection and painstaking attention to detail, as well as an in-depth knowledge of the kinds of evidence allowable in Florida court proceedings. The personal injury attorneys of Madalon Law can provide the legal expertise and resources needed to gather and present all of the pertinent information to get surviving family members the most advantageous settlement possible.
