Wrongful Death Attorneys

Helping Clients Throughout Tampa Bay Find Justice After a Devastating Loss

The death of a loved one under any circumstances is a traumatic event. When a family loses a member due to the reckless or negligent act of someone else, it is tragic. Florida law allows filing of a wrongful death claim to compensate a family when a death is caused by the negligent behavior of someone else and to help minimize the financial trauma the death may cause.

Our office employs its own dedicated and experienced investigator who, in conjunction with our experienced wrongful death attorneys, coordinates and provides prompt, economical and thorough investigative services.

At Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A., our Tampa wrongful death attorneys are dedicated advocates for the survivors of victims killed by the wrongful acts of others, including deaths resulting from:

  • Truck accidents
  • Automobile collisions

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Bicycle accidents

  • Pedestrian accidents

  • Boating accidents

  • Serious slip and fall accidents

  • Premises liability

  • Medical malpractice

  • Surgical injuries

  • Birth injuries

  • Nursing home neglect and abuse

  • Dangerous and defective products

  • Failure to warn

  • Workplace accidents

Our Tampa wrongful death attorneys have the knowledge and resources to fully investigate each wrongful death claim, determine who is at fault, assess the full extent of the loss, and pursue financial recoveries that help survivors rebuild their lives.

In Florida, a personal representative may be appointed by the court so that rights of each survivor or beneficiary of the deceased person are protected. The personal representative is often the spouse or the parent of the deceased; however, any survivor or beneficiary who would be entitled to compensation after someone dies would have the right to investigate or initiate a wrongful death claim. Our skilled wrongful death attorneys help guide the bereaved in initiating timely claims, including claims for:

  • Medical costs
  • Loss of future support due to lost wages
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Mental anguish

Contact our experienced and compassionate wrongful death attorneys to begin the thoughtful dialogue that can lead to getting the compensation your family needs and deserves to cope with the financial aspects of the accidental loss of your loved one.  Initial consultations are free.  Should you decide to work with Carlson & Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A., we represent you on a contingency basis, which means attorneys fees will not be due until and unless we recover compensation for you.  Please see our case results for more information.
