Tampa Wrongful Death Attorneys
Representing Clients in Wrongful Death Claims and Lawsuits
The death of a family member is always an emotionally upsetting experience
for those left behind. When that death occurred due to the negligent actions
or inactions of others and should never have happened in the first place,
it can be devastating. While nothing can bring back your loved one, an
experienced attorney can help you find closure and justice through a wrongful
death claim. If you have lost a family member in a death caused by negligence
in the Tampa area, we urge you to contact our firm to arrange a free consultation
with an attorney as soon as possible. We will do everything we can in
the legal arena to help you recover the maximum compensation for damages
to which you are entitled under the law.
Florida maintains a statute of limitations in the filing of a wrongful
death claim. This means that you will typically have 2 years from the
date of the death to file your claim. Your family member may have died
as a result of a negligent driver, including drunk and drug-impaired drivers,
in a slip and fall accident on another's premises, through medical
malpractice, negligent security, or any other type of incident where another's
negligence or intentional wrongdoing was the cause.
Damages Recoverable in a Wrongful Death Claim
Under Florida law, those who may recover financial compensation for a wrongful
death include the spouse, parent, or child of the decedent. Damages that
may be recovered include the loss of support or services that the deceased
person provided, such as vital income, benefits, and household services,
medical expenses that incurred before the death, funeral expenses, and
the pain and suffering of the survivors due to the loss.
At such a difficult time in your life, it is important to have a Tampa
personal injury lawyer from our firm handling all of the legal details
of your claim. Let us use our experience, skills, and legal abilities
