  • What Are Some Examples of Cases a Wrongful Death Lawyer Can Handle?

    Our West Palm Beach wrongful death lawyers can handle all kinds of cases where an individual's death was caused by the wrongful acts or negligence of another party. These cases can include but are not limited to, deaths caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, workplace accidents, and even criminal activities. 

  • Who Can Sue for Wrongful Death?

    Certain individuals with a close relationship to the deceased may have the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. Here, we're talking about:

    • the spouse of the deceased;  
    • the surviving children of the deceased;
    • parents of the deceased (if the deceased had no surviving spouse or children); or
    • other dependent relatives or adoptive siblings. 

    Not sure if you can file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit? Talk to us about your case. We'll let you know what the law says about your eligibility. 

  • What Damages Can You Recover in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

    The recoverable damages in these kinds of cases vary depending on different circumstances. Generally, you or any other eligible person may be able to recover:

    • the cost of the funeral and burial arrangements;
    • medical expenses (only if the deceased received medical treatment for the injuries that ultimately led to their death);
    • the loss of financial support they would have received from the deceased;
    • the emotional pain and suffering resulting from the loss of companionship and guidance of the deceased; and
    • punitive damages (if extreme negligence or intentional harm was the cause of death).
  • Is There a Deadline for Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in West Palm Beach?

    Yes, in West Palm Beach, Florida, the general statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is two years from the date of the individual's death. However, per Florida Statute § 95.11(10) (2023), a wrongful death suit can be filed at any time if the death resulted from murder or manslaughter. This rule applies even if the accused hasn't been arrested, charged, or convicted of the crime.
