WRONGFUL DEATH CASES
When someone dies as a direct and proximate result of an adverse event such as a motor vehicle collision, an on-the-job injury, a defective or dangerous product, or a medical mistake or nursing home neglect, such will often trigger Florida’s Wrongful Death Statute which has a very short statute of limitations. It is often the spouse, dependent children and/or the estate of the deceased victim that can bring these legal causes of action. At our firm, we can handle both the probate case as well as the underlying wrongful death matter. A typical injury case can become a wrongful death case when the victim dies from their injuries. Thus, statues of limitations can often become shorter when this occurs, so time is of the essence.
