Losing a family member in a tragic accident is terrible, especially when it could have been preventable. Money could never replace a loved one or make the pain and anguish of your loss go away, no matter the amount. But when a family member is unexpectedly lost, the surviving members of the family are often left with overwhelming expenses and no way to pay for them. A wrongful death suit can aid victims’ families in receiving the reimbursement they need to cover these expenses, as well as for their pain and suffering.
A wrongful death claim exists when a person is killed because of the negligence of another person. A wrongful death case is typically pursued after a fatal 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 very complex. It is important to have a wrongful death attorney with the experience necessary to bring a successful wrongful death suit.
There is a limited time known as the Statute of Limitations that you have to bring a wrongful death case. In Florida, it is usually required that you file a wrongful death complaint within two years. There are certain exceptions to the rule, but they are limited. If you lost a loved one because of someone’s negligence in Fort Lauderdale or in one of the surrounding areas such as Miami or West Palm Beach, call Ginnis & Krathen.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person or entity, it is important that you reach out to a personal injury wrongful death attorney immediately. Wrongful death law is complicated and there is a time limitation, known as a Statute of Limitations, in which you can bring a wrongful death suit. If you file a wrongful death complaint beyond this time limitation and do not qualify for a special legal exception (of which there are few), you will be barred from being able to maintain your wrongful death case.
