If your loved one has died in a catastrophic event caused by a company’s or an individual’s negligence you have two (2) years under Florida law to file a lawsuit and recover compensation on their behalf. This short time frame can put a lot of pressure on family members because they are forced to deal with legal issues while dealing with the grief of having lost someone they love.
It is important to talk to an attorney about your love one’s death early because an attorney can take immediate steps to preserve vital evidence, which may be destroyed or lost. Wrongful death cases also require immediate involvement of an attorney so that your lawyer can take statements from eye witnesses and collect important contact information of anyone that may be knowledge about the event.
You may be able to recover loss of companionship, lifetime loss of wages, loss of personal services, and your own pain and suffering due to the untimely death of a loved one.
