Wrongful death cases are challenging to navigate without legal counsel. We, therefore, recommend you seek legal counsel immediately. In Florida, the statute of limitations is two (2) years for wrongful death cases, unlike regular negligence personal injury cases which have a four (4) year statute of limitations.
The wrongful death of a loved one has several legal consequences relating to personal injury law, family law, trust and estate law, and criminal law. If you’ve suffered the loss of a loved one, a wrongful death lawyer can help you take the necessary steps to build the strongest case possible, they can support you with all the documentation and detailed work of the caseload, they can give you an estimation of the value of your claim, and they can present your case in court if a trial is necessary.
