We know how hard it is to lose someone close to you. However, losing someone is even more difficult when your loved one’s death was due to the negligence or criminal misconduct of another person.
With over 150 years of combined experience in this area we know the ins-and-outs of the representation you need. Our wrongful death attorneys will analyze your case to determine if you have legal ground on which to file a wrongful death claim.
In Florida, the period within which you must file a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of death. In most cases, you are not permitted to file a wrongful death claim beyond this statute of limitations. While there can be exceptions to this rule, it is critical for you to speak with a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. If you have lost a loved one due to negligence, you may have legal standing to pursue a wrongful death claim. As you begin this process, bear in mind that in a wrongful death case, the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate can bring a claim to recover any damages caused by the injury that resulted in his or her loved one’s death.
Even if you think that you are outside the statute of limitations, our experienced attorneys are here to discuss your case with you.
