Lake County Wrongful Death Lawyers

If you’ve arrived here, it’s likely that you’ve suffered the loss of a loved one or that you’re trying to help a friend, family member, or colleague who is going through the difficult period of bereavement. We at the Lake County Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. are sorry for your loss.

Although unfortunately nothing can bring back your loved one, we can help you secure resources necessary to the future of you and your surviving family members. If you’re feeling hopeless or even apathetic, know that you aren’t alone. Although this is a normal and understandable step in the grieving process, statutes of limitations and other aspects of the legal system can demand timely and specific courses of action.

Funeral and burial costs alone can amount to over $10,000.00 in Florida. Although many survivors are reminded of these financial hardships up front, there are other losses and fees that will need to be considered, as well, such as:

  • lost wages
  • medical bills
  • replacement vehicles
  • therapy fees
  • loss of retirement benefits
  • unexpected household maintenance fees
  • and more

We’re Here in Lake County

We’re located in a unique part of the country. For example, along with beauty, opportunity, and seaplane activity, Lake Dora brings associated dangers. Tourists, who are unfamiliar with the area, bring increased accident risks, as well. We’ve helped families after car accidents on the Florida turnpike, motorcycle casualties on US 27, and fatal collisions on US 441.

The Dangers of Acting without Legal Representation

Making verbal or written agreements with insurance companies, even if made during a moment of heartbreak or panic, can prevent you from receiving the compensation owed to you and yours. We recommend hiring a seasoned local attorney who specializes in wrongful death law. James O. Cunningham has obtained compensation for his clients amid wrongful death tragedies for nearly four decades. We’ve helped visitors and residents of the following cities and towns as well as less populated areas of Lake County:

  • Altoona
  • Clermont
  • Fruitland Park
  • Groveland
  • Howey-in-the-Hills
  • Lake Kathryn
  • Minneola
  • Montverde
  • Mount Dora
  • Tavares

Please call us at 877-345-6587. Our seasoned and compassionate professionals at the Lake County office are here.

  • 5 StarsI would most definitely recommend James Cunningham for a Personal Injury Attorney

    We interviewed 3 different lawyers before we chose Mr. Cunningham. We are glad we did. I felt besides helping us with the needed funeral expenses for my father, he was honest, upfront, and of the highest ethics.
