Morgan & Morgan
Do I Have a Case?
You may have a valid case if your loved one's death resulted from someone else's negligence or intentional act, like in a car accident, due to medical malpractice, or because of a faulty product. However, it's important to discuss the specifics of your case with a wrongful death expert from our team to determine whether you have legal grounds to take action, including how best to proceed.
What Is the Deadline for Filing a Claim?
Florida has a strict two-year deadline for filing a wrongful death claim. If you miss this deadline, you will lose your right to recover damages. The other party (or even the judicial system) won't listen to your case if they find out that you missed the deadline.
When Does the Statute of Limitations Clock Start?
The clock for the statute of limitations typically starts ticking from the date of the deceased's death. This date marks the beginning of the period within which a wrongful death claim must be filed.
Are There Any Exceptions to the Deadline?
Yes, here in Florida and many other states, there are exceptions to the deadline for filing wrongful death claims. Notably, in cases of wrongful death resulting from medical malpractice, the claim must be brought within four years of the death. That's why it's always advisable to have your case reviewed by an expert, even if the incident happened long ago.
How Can a Wrongful Death Lawyer Help?
A wrongful death lawyer can help determine the viability of your claim, gather evidence, identify the liable parties, calculate the full extent of damages, create a legal strategy, file a claim, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. If the other party's offer is unreasonable and they refuse to negotiate a better settlement, the attorney can also take the case to court and have it settled by the judge or jury.
Contact a Morgan and Morgan Wrongful Death Expert
Wrongful death claims are often met with heavy pushback from the other party. That's because they know such a level of negligence has serious consequences. At a time when you're grieving a loved one, you shouldn't be stressing about dealing with the other party. They'll exploit your grief and manipulate you into settling for less or nothing at all.
You deserve legal experts who understand your pain and have the resources to hold the other party accountable. Contact us today to get your free case review.
