Has a loved one suffered from wrongful death?
After practicing law for many years, I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of cases. Some attorneys grow numb to the experience, and consider each case to be just that: another case.
I can tell you right now, though: when a wrongful death case comes through my door, that’s not the treatment my clients receive. I press pause on everything else, and give you the attention and compassion that you deserve.
If you’re here researching the need for a wrongful death attorney, let me say that I’m truly sorry for your loss. I’ve helped many clients through this process, and I understand how incredibly difficult it is.
When it comes to a wrongful death lawsuit, you need an attorney you can trust: someone who will return your phone calls right away, keep you up to date on how the case is proceeding, and answer all of your questions in full. When I take on a wrongful death case, I give it top priority and make myself available to my client for whatever they might need.
Do I need a wrongful death lawyer?
In the state of Florida, the letter of the law dictates that your loved one’s “personal representative” (as outlined in their will) must be the one to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The suit itself will be filed on behalf of your loved one’s estate, and any damages are generally allocated to family members. The lawsuit must be filed within two (2) years of the date of death in order to hold up in court.
A wrongful death case is much more complex than the average personal injury case. As the party bringing the lawsuit to court, you’ll need to demonstrate that another party’s wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract was directly responsible for your loved one’s death. This is far from simple, and requires an attorney with extensive experience in order to properly to represent you.
I understand what you’re going through, and my prayers go out to you. If you believe a loved one has suffered from wrongful death, I’m here for you. Please call me, Jeff, personally at (904) 353-9000, or contact us here.
