Wrongful Death

A Wrongful Death is the taking of the life of a person resulting from the willful or negligent act of another. It can be the act of a single person or of a corporation. Most certainly, the loss of your loved one was unexpected.  The law provides for the compensation of the survivors when a wrongful death occurs.

The Personal Representative of the Estate of the deceased is required to bring any claims and they must assure that the interests of each survivor is protected.   The Personal Representative is frequently a spouse, parent or child of the deceased.  Florida Statutes define who is a survivor in a wrongful death action.  Medical and funeral expenses are also recoverable by the Estate or the survivor who is obligated to pay them.

The loss of a loved one is a time surrounded by uncertainty and grief for families.  An experienced attorney will understand the unusual issues in making a claim for a wrongful death.  Call us at 407-999-9955 for assistance with your wrongful death claim.
