There is nothing more tragic than the death of a family member. Our attorneys are extremely experienced in handling the legal issues that arise as a result of a wrongful death. We also approach these cases knowing the magnitude of the loss of a family member and how devastating this loss can be.
In Florida, the Wrongful Death Act allows for recovery in the event a death is caused by the wrongdoing of another. For example, wrongful deaths can be caused by automobile accidents, defective products, unsound structures or buildings, or the failure to timely diagnose a fatal disease. The types of damages recoverable in a wrongful death action vary depending on the specific situation. Claimants may recover for loss of future earnings, expenses associated with the death, loss of benefits, loss of companionship and care, and for mental anguish. Typically, these cases must be filed within two years of the date of death, although it may be earlier or later depending on the nature of the claim.
