When someone you love dies in an accident in Florida that was caused by another person’s negligence, you—as the immediate family member—have the right to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against all liable parties. Granted, no amount of compensation can make up for the death of your loved one, but filing a Florida wrongful death claim or lawsuit is one way to hold the liable party accountable for their careless or negligent actions and relieve you of some of the financial and emotional burden that the death of your loved one has wrought.

We are committed to fighting zealously for your right to receive compensation from the party responsible for your loved one’s death.
Wrongful Death & Damages
Family members in Florida have two years from the time of their loved one’s death to file their wrongful death case against any negligent parties. Wrongful deaths usually occur in personal injury accidents where a person acted carelessly, negligently, or recklessly and caused the fatal accident to occur.
Fatal car accidents, truck crashes, motorcycle collisions, medical malpractice errors, inadequate security cases, and accidents involving defective products are some of the many kinds of personal injury accidents that can lead to a wrongful death claim or lawsuit if a death occurs.
In Florida, the surviving family member’s biological relationship to the wrongful death victim will determine the compensation that he or she has a right to receive. Wrongful death damages in Florida can include compensation for medical costs, funeral expenses, lost wages, loss of financial support, loss of benefits, loss of companionship, and other related expenses.
