What Our Hialeah Wrongful Death Lawyers Can Do For You

When faced with the untimely loss of a family member, seeking legal assistance may be the last thing on your mind. However, having a knowledgeable and empathetic lawyer by your side can make a difference. Our Hialeah wrongful death attorneys are committed to easing the burden on your family by handling the legal complexities, allowing you to focus on healing and rebuilding your life. Here’s how we ensure you are treated fairly during your case:

  • Estate Creation Assistance: In Florida, a wrongful death case can only be prosecuted by the personal representative of the decedent’s Estate. This means that an Estate must be opened and someone has to be appointed to prosecute the wrongful death case on behalf of the survivors. Our attorneys will assist, or work with specialists to assist in this process.
  • Obtaining an Autopsy:  In some cases an autopsy is necessary to determine the precise cause of death – even if the death certificate lists a cause of death.  Our lawyers may be able to assist you in obtaining an autopsy during the critical time-period after a person has passed away.  It is important to remember that the State only performs an autopsy in a very limited number of circumstances and in some cases, an autopsy will be critical to prove your wrongful death case.
    • A medical doctor who specializes in performing autopsies, can perform an autopsy at the following local funeral homes with the permission of the family.
    • We can help your family obtain an autopsy from any funeral home including: Caballero Rivero Hialeah, Funeraria Hialeah Memorial, Bernardo Garcia Funeral Home, Memorial Plan San José Palm Funeral Home, Memorial Plan San José Funeral Home & Care Center, Vista Memorial Gardens
  • Collecting and Analyzing Evidence: Our lawyers leave no stone unturned in building a strong case on your behalf. We meticulously gather relevant evidence, including video and photographic evidence from accidents, eyewitness statements, medical records, and any other relevant information.
  • Skillful Negotiation: Handling communications with other involved parties can be daunting. Our Hialeah wrongful death attorneys are well-versed in negotiating with insurance companies and opposing counsel. We aggressively advocate for your best interests to achieve a favorable settlement that addresses all aspects of your damages.
  • Ready for Trial: We are prepared to take your case to trial if the opposing side refuses to cooperate or offers inadequate compensation.
