The loss of a loved one is a tragic situation from which you may never fully recover. Knowing that your parent, child, spouse or other family member would still be with you today, had another person not been negligent or reckless, can make coping with the loss unbearable.
In addition to dealing with the emotional loss of a loved one, our clients often find themselves dealing with a loss of income and a loss of spousal, parental or familial support.
A wrongful death suit can provide relief to the surviving family members by bringing the responsible party to justice and recovering money for physical, financial and emotional damages.
Statute of Limitations
In Florida wrongful death cases, you have two years from the date of death to file a lawsuit. You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation, but keep in mind that a lawsuit must be filed prior to the expiration of that statute of limitations. As such, you should contact a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.
