With more than 150 years of combined wrongful death litigation experience, we have helped individuals in Tampa Bay and throughout Florida navigate the complicated legal landscape with favorable results.
Accountability for an untimely death
Relatives eligible to bring a wrongful death claim include a surviving spouse, children, parents, or other next of kin. The law establishes an order of priority with respect to which relatives can first bring a wrongful death legal action. While a surviving spouse generally has priority over other relatives, if he or she does not act within a certain period this right may be forfeited. Whether or not the law recognizes your right to bring a wrongful death claim can be a complicated determination. It is best entrusted to our Tampa wrongful death attorneys who routinely handle wrongful death disputes.
Our wrongful death attorneys have decades of combined diverse, hands-on experience with all types of personal injury cases. This versatility is important in wrongful death litigation. Please see our case results for more information. While each underlying case type has its own nuances, a wrongful death attorney generally must prove the following to recover successfully:
- A duty of care;
- Breach of that duty;
- Link between the breach and the victim’s death; and
- Damages resulting from the death.
Some of these elements can be very difficult to prove, potentially necessitating expert testimony
