How much is a Florida wrongful death case worth?
Any lawyer that will tell you the answer to that question is either crazy or doesn’t know what he’s talking about because you need a lot of facts to be able to do that. In other words you need to know about fault or liability, how it happen. So whether it was somebody ran a red light, whether they were drinking. All of those things factor into the value of a case.
The second thing is what that person, who that person was, what they did, what their income was, what their net accumulations were. So you need a tremendous amount of information to be able to do that. When you have that information you can then actually do something called a jury verdict search in your area and that’ll tell you, you can compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges.
So the ultimate value of a lawful death case depends on all of those facts and then what has happened historically when people have gone to trial in your area such as Jacksonville.
