Wrongful Death Attorney in Tampa

The unexpected loss of a loved one is an extremely traumatic experience. If the death was caused by another individual's careless actions that resulted in an accident, or in cases involving medical malpractice or nursing home abuse, family members may be eligible for wrongful death compensation. There are numerous things that can lead to an unexpected wrongful death and the most frequent incidents involve car accidents, drug side effects, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, negligence and product defects.

When a person has been fatally injured in an accident caused by someone's negligent or careless actions, family members such as a spouse, parent or dependent child can file a claim for monetary damages. Wrongful death compensation can include:

  • Any medical care or treatment administered prior to the person's death
  • The accident victims pain and suffering
  • Loss of support
  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship

Statute of Limitations in Florida

The Statute of Limitations places a limit on the amount of time that a family member has to file a claim after the wrongful death has occurred. In Florida, family members have two years from the time that the death was suspected to happen. After two years have passed, even genuine claims can become invalid. There may be special limited exceptions, such as cases where a person suffers injury but does not know until the injury results in death many years later. In order to determine if you still have the right to file a claim, it is always best to contact a Tampa personal injury lawyer who can inform you of your rights.
