Losing a loved one can be emotionally paralyzing. If you’ve arrived at this page, we understand that you might be grieving, and we are sorry for your loss.

After tragic events, spouses, children, parents, and other loved ones are often left asking, “What am I going to do?” We are here to help you and your surviving loved ones work toward a stable future.
What is Wrongful Death in Florida?
We help families who are suffering from the unfortunate consequences of:
- inattentive, texting, and drunk drivers;
- manufacturers of unsafe toys, furniture, building materials, and vehicles;
- poorly maintained parking lots and roads;
- food-and-beverage professionals who have overserved intoxicated drivers;
- and medical malpractice;
- among other tragic events.
Unfortunately, survivors don’t alway know that making verbal or written agreements with third parties, including insurance companies, can prevent future settlements. Make sure to have an attorney present. With the proper legal guidance, many Florida residents are able to keep their marital homes and maintain stability for their young children, for example.
Please know that wrongful death cases also help prevent wrongdoers from continuing to act negligently or recklessly. If you think that someone else’s unsafe behavior has resulted in your loved one’s death, filing a wrongful death claim might be what it takes to prevent someone from endangering lives again in the future.
The definition of wrongful death varies from state to state. Therefore, it’s important to not only seek the guidance of a specializing attorney, but one that’s a part of your Florida community.
