Advice from Fort Lauderdale Wrongful Death Lawyer
If your loved one passes away as a result of somebody else’s negligence, an estate will have to be set up for your loved one. A “personal representative” will have to be appointed as the head of the estate. In the wrongful death case, the personal representative will technically be the client, represent the family, and be the person to bring the lawsuit. You should talk to your family members and decide who in the family would be most appropriate to be the personal representative as this person who will likely need to be deposed and participate in other ways in the litigation.
The beneficiaries of the estate will be the loved ones survivors, or those left behind. The survivors can include the spouse of the loved one, parents of the loved one, children of the loved one, and any other relative dependents of the loved one. It is these survivors that will recover compensation from the case.
