We bring Wrongful Death claims for reimbursement and compensation for a family when one of its members dies as a result of negligence or misconduct. Most importantly we seek compensation for the mental anguish of certain relatives. We can also recover the loss of support and services of those who were dependent, and medical and funeral expenses.
Early Legal Consultation enhances your chance of recovery. It allows us to:
- Evaluate evidence needed to prove the cause of death
- Investigate those who may be responsible
- Secure evidence before it is lost, forgotten, or destroyed
- Evaluate factors that impact the value of your claim
Proof of Cause of Death. Each claim relies on proof that someone’s negligence or misconduct contributed to causing the death. The Death Certificate can be all that is needed in some cases, like auto accidents and drowning deaths. However, in most medical and pharmacy negligence cases it is necessary to do an Autopsy or Forensic Examination.
Shortly after your initial consultation, we will investigate the facts to learn who may be responsible, what evidence is needed to prove your claim and what insurance coverage may be available
Contact us for a free consultation. We will evaluate your claim and show you the path to recovery at no risk to you. You pay no fee or costs unless you make a recovery.
The value of a claim depends on factors which are unique to the incident. The purpose of the initial consultation is to learn facts that frame your potential recovery. Our investigation also impacts the value of your claim. We are ready to get started when you are.
Claims under Florida law must be initiated within two years of the date of death.
Every case is different. We know how to expedite the process when the client needs a speedy resolution. However, it usually takes more time to maximize the recovery. We will advise you of the options and design an approach that meets your objectives.
