When someone you love dies unexpectedly, it is often hard to come to terms with the sudden loss. Not only do you experience grief and shock, but you will likely be faced with costly medical and funeral expenses.

Wrongful death refers to any death that is caused by the misconduct or negligence of another person. In Florida, survivors of the deceased may be entitled to receive compensation for the loss of their loved one.

How Do I Select a Wrongful Death Attorney?

If you wish to seek legal action for wrongful death, it is important to select a personal injury lawyer who is experienced at handling wrongful death lawsuits.

What are My Legal Rights?

When a loved one is killed due to someone’s negligence or other misconduct, it is important to act quickly to file a legal claim. In Florida, you may have a limited amount of time from the date of your loved one’s death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you wait too long to take legal action, you may forfeit your right to seek compensation.

Compensation can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Burial expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering

Florida Wrongful Death Laws

In Florida, surviving family members are authorized to file a wrongful death suit. However, the Florida Wrongful Death Act limits the definition of survivors to the decedent’s spouse, children, parents, and any legally recognized relatives who were dependent on the decedent for services or support. Because these definitions come with some limitations, it is important to speak with a Tampa wrongful death lawyer to understand your legal rights.

We fight aggressively to get the best possible outcome.
