Seek Counsel with an Experienced Attorney of Wrongful Death

State statutory provisions govern wrongful death actions in Florida. State law requires wrongful death suits to be brought by the personal representative of the deceased. A knowledgeable attorney of wrongful death will help you determine which family members qualify as “survivors of the decedent” in order to be eligible for compensation. If there are children born out wedlock, they are eligible for compensation for the father’s wrongful death only if the father recognized a responsibility for the child’s support.

The following are individuals who are qualified to file wrongful death claims on behalf of a deceased person:

  • Immediate family members
  • Parents of deceased fetuses
  • Putative spouses
  • Life partners
  • Distant family members
  • Financial dependents
  • Anyone else who suffers financially from the loss

Take Immediate Action

If you suspect that a family member was the victim of wrongful death, whether by the negligent or improper actions of an employer, medical staff, motorist, or prescription drug manufacturer, it is important to act quickly and consult a wrongful death attorney. The statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death suit in Florida is only two years. Before you agree to sign any settlement papers or make any official statements, we suggest that you consult our law practice as soon as possible.

Wrongful death often occurs in the following situations:

  • Nursing home abuse, malpractice, or negligence
  • Hospital malpractice or negligence
  • Workplace accident
  • Pharmaceutical liability for unsafe or defective prescription drugs
  • Automobile or other transportation accidents

We are here for you during this trying time to provide the legal advice and representation you and your family deserve. Please feel free to reach out with your questions and concerns at no cost.
