Jacksonville Wrongful Death Attorney

At The Costantino Law Firm, we understand that taking legal action after losing a loved one in a wrongful death case is likely not a priority. Surviving loved ones of the deceased should seek legal assistance as soon as possible, however, to help with the financial and emotional trauma associated with the death. Families can face serious financial difficulties with the passing of a loved one to wrongful death, especially when he or she was the primary financial provider of the household. Although the compensation that a successful wrongful death claim can provide will never resolve the emotional loss experienced by the family, it can help ease stress associated with medical and funeral bills. Speak with our Jacksonville personal injury attorney for assistance with your case.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Florida

Wrongful death claims are civil actions made by survivors of individuals who have died as the result of negligence or recklessness of another individual. In such cases, the family members of the decedent can seek monetary damages that are designed to provide compensation for financial and emotional hardship. Based on the Florida Wrongful Death Act, the survivors of the deceased can seek compensation for lost services and support of an individual who died because of another person's negligence. Children, parents, and the spouse are entitled to seek compensation through a wrongful death suit.

In Florida, the statute of limitations to file a wrongful death case is two years from the date of death. This means that the surviving loved ones of the decedent only have two years to pursue monetary compensation through a wrongful death claim. If you have lost a loved one because of another individual's reckless behavior, our Jacksonville personal injury lawyer has the resources and experience necessary to help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Take action at once to achieve the best case result by contacting The Costantino Law Firm!
