The loss of a loved one before their time is always tragic. When that loss comes as a result of the negligence of another person or a business, it is even more difficult to bear. Florida Law allows for the Personal Representative of the Estate of the Deceased Person to bring an action for wrongful death on behalf of the Estate and any Survivors who may have a claim.
There is a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims, so it is imperative that these claims are acted upon quickly so that a proper investigation may be made and all the evidence gathered. As painful as this is, it may sometimes involve an independent autopsy. When you are dealing with this loss, collecting evidence seems like an impossible task. It is important to seek help immediately, so that you can focus on your family and begin your own healing process, and let someone else deal with the investigation. This is what we do.
Be it the result of an automobile, truck, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian incident, premises liability, a defective product or medical negligence, getting the right law firm to help you evaluate a potential wrongful death claim as soon as possible is incredibly important.
