Wrongful Death Attorney in Panama City
The loss of a loved one, especially due to someone else's negligence, is often too painful to bear.

At the same time, you'll need to ensure that their death does not cripple the family, at least financially.

Morgan & Morgan
Is It Wrong to File a Wrongful Death Claim?
No, it is not wrong to file a wrongful death claim if the death resulted from the negligence or misconduct of another party. Wrongful death claims provide a legal pathway for seeking compensation for the losses suffered by surviving family members.
How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Panama City?
The time limit, also known as the statute of limitations, to file a wrongful death claim in Panama City is two years from the date of death. If you fail to take legal action within this deadline, you won't be able to do so once the window shuts.
Do I Still Need an Attorney if the Other Party Agrees to Settle?
Yes, you should bring a lawyer on board even if the other party agrees to settle. The only reason the other party may want to settle quickly is because they want to rush everything and prevent you from hiring a lawyer or realizing what you're entitled to. An attorney, on the other hand, usually gets paid only if you win, so they're motivated to ensure you obtain the best possible outcome.
What Factors Will Determine the Value of My Claim?
When determining the value of a wrongful death claim, we often look at factors such as:
- the unique circumstances of the death;
- the financial losses the survivors incurred, and
- the impact on surviving family members;
Other factors may also help determine the value of the case, but these are the most common.
