Wrongful DeathCases We Handle

Some of the most common wrongful death claims our attorneys handle include:

Automotive Accidents

If you’ve recently lost a loved one due to a car crash or boating accident, the driver may be held liable for reckless driving or driving under the influence.

Defective Products

Certain health or body products have been known to cause wrongful death. If you’ve lost someone due to a defective or mislabeled product, we have the experience and capability to fight large companies in court.

Medical Malpractice

If a physician or mid-level provider prescribes medication without consulting a patient’s pre-existing conditions, and the patient dies as a result, the scenario is referred to as medical malpractice. Florida’s statute of limitations to file a lawsuit is four-years for medical negligence that leads to the death of a patient.

Intentional Criminal Action

If your loved one was killed with malicious intent, you may have a civil and criminal case to bring to the courtroom. Surviving families can claim funeral expenses, victim wages, medical bills, mental and emotional suffering, and loss of companionship. We work to bring justice to your family and use our expertise to recover compensation for all of the above.

Workplace Hazards or Mishap

Accidents in the workplace can lead to wrongful death. Whether it’s a malfunction of machinery or negligence of a manager, those who are involved should be liable and we investigate to receive the whole story.

  • Loss of support and services to the family
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Loss of parental companionship and guidance
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical and funeral expenses
