The losses in a wrongful death case may include medical expenses, loss of earnings, the loss of support, love, affection and guidance, as well as your grief and suffering.
Since the family member is not available to bring a case, the estate or survivors are authorized by the law to do so. It is important to act immediately to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death. Any delay in investigating the circumstances and identifying the responsible parties can result in the disappearance of medical evidence or witnesses, thereby jeopardizing the claim.
Wrongful death cases have a shorter statute of limitations than injury cases, and also different restrictions and requirements. That means that you must act sooner and comply with all of the specific technical requirements or the claim may be lost forever. We offer a free consultation so you will be informed of your rights.
The loss of a loved one is a tragic event. No amount of money can ever replace a parent, spouse, or child. When a family member dies through the fault of another, the entire family suffers. Under Florida law, survivors may include a spouse, children, parents, or others, depending on the circumstances. As the survivor in a wrongful death situation, you have the right to know what happened and, when someone is at fault, to receive compensation.
