Although it is impossible to place monetary value on the life of a loved one, our system of justice allows for restitution in the event your loved one died as a result of the wrongful conduct of another. It is public policy in Florida to shift the losses resulting from the wrongful death of a loved one from the survivors to the wrongdoer. In Florida, survivors may include the decedent’s spouse, children, parents, or other relatives who were dependent in whole or in part on the decedent for financial support. The law in Florida requires that the suit must be filed two years from the date the wrongful death is suspected or confirmed. If you have suffered the loss of a loved one and would like to discuss your potential case with an attorney, please contact us.
