Wrongful Death Accidents in Florida
Losing a loved one in a tragic, preventable accident is traumatic. No amount of money could ever replace a loved one or make the pain and anguish of your loss go away. However, when a loved one is unexpectedly lost, the surviving members of the family are often left with overwhelming expenses and no means to pay for them. A wrongful death suit can help victims’ families receive the compensation they need to cover these expenses, as well as for their pain and suffering.
A wrongful death claim generally exists whenever a person dies as a result of the negligence of another person or entity. A wrongful death case is typically pursued after a fatal motor vehicle accident, an accident due to a dangerous or defective product, a fatal bike accident, a boating or cruise ship accident, a fatal railroad accident, an aviation accident, a fatal construction accident, medical malpractice, or any other form of fatality due to negligence.
Proving negligence is not easy and wrongful death law is extremely complex. It is important to have a wrongful death attorney with the experience and knowledge necessary to bring a successful wrongful death suit. There is a limited time (also known as the Statute of Limitations) in which you have to bring a wrongful death case. In the state of Florida, you generally have 2 years to file a wrongful death complaint. Of course there are certain exceptions that apply, but they are limited.
