Dealing with Naples wrongful death cases, Mr. Larsen fully understands that nothing could be worse than losing a loved one or relative, especially when it is due to the negligence of another party. We appreciate that you are in a deep stage of grief, but if a negligent party was at fault for your loss or you believe this terrible accident was preventable, it is important you speak with a Naples wrongful death attorney immediately.
A family who loses a relative or loved one because of the negligence or reckless misconduct of another person, business, or even governmental entity has every right under Florida law to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the party responsible.
Evidence can disappear fast, so it is important to seek a wrongful death lawyer to thoroughly investigate a fatal accident or wrongdoing. The time limit (statute of limitations) for filing a wrongful death case is shorter than a case that doesn’t involve a fatality and therefore it’s crucial to abide by this rule in order to maintain the right to compensation.
Damages for the loss of companionship, guidance, instruction, and protection may be obtained under the Florida Wrongful Death Act for the surviving members of family. While the deceased’s estate may look for payment towards burial and medical expenses, and a loss of net earnings.
You’re facing one of the most difficult times in your life and the idea of a lawsuit is the last thing on your mind, but witness memories can wane and the scene of an accident or crime can change therefore, failing to act on your legal rights can be disastrous. It makes perfect sense to have an established and experienced lawyer looking at your case as soon as possible.
