Tragedy strikes us when we least expect it. From mishaps at the workplace to car accidents and murder, the wrongful death of a loved one leaves families and friends emotionally distraught with an overwhelming amount of grief and heartache.

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.
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.
