Dell & Schaefer Resolves Wrongful Death Claim For Policy Limit

Little Girl Drowns In A Lake

Our client, a four year old child, was walking with her grandmother near a lake. As she was feeding the ducks, suddenly and without warning she fell into the lake. Not knowing how to swim she unfortunately drowned in the lake. After the death of her child, and distraught with pain, her mother called the Miramar Wrongful Death Attorneys Dell & Schaefer. Our firm quickly signed up the case and began the process of zealously representing our client’s interests.

Dell & Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement

At first glance it did not appear that anyone was at fault for the incident. It appeared to be simply a tragedy of mystic proportion. However at closer look by our wrongful death attorneys our firm was able to find a theory of liability for which we could win the mother money for her loss. Our firm filed a wrongful death and negligent supervision claim against the grandmother’s homeowner’s insurance policy. Even though the child drowned in an area not within the home of the grandmother, our firm was able to show that the homeowner’s insurance policy was applicable in this instance. We filed a demand letter with the insurance company and demanded the policy limits or else we would file a lawsuit. The insurance company debated for less than a week before determining that our position was in fact within Florida Law and that the homeowner’s policy would be responsible to pay the claim. The homeowner’s insurance company tendered their policy limits. Although no amount of money will ever bring the child back, the mother at least knew her attorneys at Dell & Schaefer would go the extra mile for her and get her all the compensation they could under the law.
