Damages Families Can Recover After a Wrongful Death in Riverview
Because your loved one’s demise was caused by negligence, they might have been entitled to personal injury compensation had they survived. When your family pursues compensation, you can recover those same damages.
You can recover a range of damages that occurred prior to their demise including:
- Medical expenses
- Income losses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental trauma
- Emotional anguish
You can also recover a range of damages related to their demise. These can include:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of your loved one’s income
- Loss of companionship and consortium
- Loss of parental guidance and support
We will carefully assess your case in detail since each family’s recoverable damages are unique.
Florida’s Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
Your family’s right to recover damages is limited by state law. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d), you generally have up to two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
If the statute of limitations expires:
- The court will not allow you to file your lawsuit at all.
- Your lawsuit will be dismissed without being heard.
- You will have no further legal remedy available to you.
Wrongful death and other personal injury cases are usually settled out of court. If a settlement agreement cannot be reached in your case, we will file your suit on time. In short, we never stop fighting for the compensation your family is entitled to recover.
Our Contingency Basis Fee Structure Supports Timely Filing
Our client-focused fee structure is simple. Our compensation is contingent on yours. We do not expect or accept compensation until we recover it for you. Then, we accept a percentage of your financial award. If your case does not result in compensation, you owe us no attorney fees at all.
We cover every upfront cost associated with preparing your case, including the cost of a comprehensive investigation. We cover expert consultations, documentation fees, and court filing fees.
The Appropriate Family Member Must File a Wrongful Death Action
Florida law defines who can file a wrongful death action. In general, legal eligibility applies to the following family members:
- The deceased person’s spouse
- The deceased person’s children
- The deceased person’s parents
These legal guidelines are general. Marital status and many other factors can determine eligibility. Our lawyer will explain the law and ensure the appropriate family member files the appropriate action. We will also ensure your case is filed within the allotted time.
