Wrongful Death

Florida Wrongful Death Lawyer

Wrongful Death There are few things in life more painful than losing someone who you love. When a family member dies due to the negligence, recklessness or other harmful conduct of a person or corporation, the anguish this causes is seemingly multiplied a thousand-fold.

Under Florida law when the negligence or wrongful conduct of a person or corporation causes the death of a person, certain family members have a right to hold the responsible parties legally accountable and may be entitled to substantial compensation for their needless loss. At Boyers Law Group, we understand, however, that when clients come to us after having lost a precious member of their family, they want far more than compensation. They want answers, they want to hold the responsible parties legally accountable and they want justice. We strive to deliver all three.

The attorneys at Boyers Law Group have been fighting for justice throughout the state of Florida on behalf of families who have lost loved ones due to negligence and other forms of lethal conduct for many years. We have litigated and tried wrongful death cases arising out of medical negligence, motor vehicle accidents, dangerous premises, defective and dangerous products, negligent security, tractor-trailer crashes, cruise line negligence and civil rights violations, among other causes of premature and preventable death.

Our dynamic and experienced team of trial lawyers, investigators, paralegals and experts pay attention to every detail and leave no stone unturned in trying to bring some measure of comfort to our bereaved clients who need and deserve answers and justice.

The Wrongful Death Statute in Florida

F.S. 768.21 and related statutory sections contain Florida’s Wrongful Death Act. The law allows certain surviving family members to recover for the mental pain and suffering and loss of companionship, among other types of damage, they experience as a consequence of the death of their spouse, child, parent or sibling. Funeral and burial expense and loss of financial support may also be recoverable.

It is important to know that the time within which a wrongful death claim may be brought is limited by law and is often no more than 2 years from the date of the decedent’s death. Other even more stringent time limitations may apply as well. As a result, it is critical that you promptly contact an attorney experienced in investigating, litigating and trying wrongful death cases in order to preserve your legal rights.

Client Reviews
Rob very successfully represented our family (our son) in a medical malpractice case involving a birth injury where our son suffered brachial plexus at birth.
Rob truly has a passion and an amazing talent for law. His commitment to his clients is truly unwavering and we are forever grateful for the dedication and care that he put into our son's case. Without a doubt it is because of Rob that our son will have opportunities in life he may not have had and will have the resources he needs to make his disablility less of a hindrance for him.
Robert Boyers was recommended to me to handle my slip and fall case. I will be forever grateful to Robert for allowing me to feel that I was in the ‘best possible hands’ throughout the 2+ year process through and including the settlement of the case. Robert’s expertise, professionalism, and compassion were beyond what I observed in the legal field. And, his associate and staff were a fine reflection of Robert’s guidance. Robert was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. Rhonda
I hired Mr. Robert Boyers for a wrongful death case involving my father. I wasn’t sure what to do, or procedures to take until I met Mr. Boyers. I can say honestly from my heart I’m very thankful I met this attorney. Losing a father, and feeling lost is the worst feeling anyone would have. Mr. Boyers and his staff was very sincere and compassionate the entire time and then after during my case. Erica
I had a major accident where I sustained many injuries both short and long term. I was referred to Rob Boyers by a friend and I contacted him and he came to my house as I was completely incapacitated. He interviewed myself and my family as to the facts of the case and we subsequently hired him to handle my case as it relates to the insurance and the various medical obligations i was incurring.
To that end I am grateful to him and his services and consider him a friend to this day.
