Law PracticesPersonal Injury Law – Wrongful Death

Unintended injuries and accidents are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Nearly 170,000 Americans are killed in accidents every year.

In some cases, these deaths are simply accidents. They couldn’t have been avoided and no one is at fault for causing them. In other cases, the death is due to someone’s negligence or recklessness. These accidents could have been avoided and the victim’s family may be eligible for compensation.

It is important to know that the Florida Wrongful Death Statute limits who can sue in the event of wrongful death and how long the family has to file in order to hold the negligent party accountable.
