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.Boyers Law Group’s Wrongful Death Attorneys
