ABOUT WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS

When you’ve lost a loved one, you may find yourself facing a barrage of unexpected financial and legal decisions at a time when you are least prepared to deal with them. If your loved one’s untimely death has occurred as a result of another person or entity’s negligence, recklessness, or deliberate act, then you need to speak with a wrongful death attorney who specializes in wrongful death cases. In Florida, there is a two year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims, and it’s important to consider your legal options sooner rather than later. Ten years from now, you will still feel the financial and emotional impact of your loss, but it will be too late then to pursue a claim. You must consult an personal injury attorney to explore your available options now in the interest of your family’s future.
