DO YOU KNOW HOW THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR WRONGFUL DEATH IN FLORIDA COULD IMPACT YOU?

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 Tallahassee wrongful death expert 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.

Even if you think that you are outside the statute of limitations, our experienced attorneys are here to discuss your case with you.  Our local community team of Tallahassee wrongful death and personal injury lawyers here to support you and your family.
