Naples Wrongful Death Lawyers

Experiencing the unexpected or premature loss of a loved one can be one of the most trying moments for a Naples family, especially if the death resulted from negligence. While pecuniary damages cannot wholly remedy grieving descendants, it can replace the tangible loss of assets to mitigate financial hardship.

If someone you love has been wrongfully killed from an injury caused by the misconduct of another individual, company, or entity, contact a Naples wrongful death attorney to discuss your legal options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Understanding Florida’s Wrongful Death Laws

Wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the negligence or misconduct of another, after which surviving loved ones can bring legal action against the responsible party for damages, including, but not limited to, mental pain and suffering, lost income, lost companionship, and funeral costs. The statute of limitations for a wrongful death case in Florida is two years.

To bring a wrongful death cause of action, the claimant must prove the death resulted from negligence and surviving family members consequently suffered financial injury. A claimant can recover damages as both a beneficiary of the estate and as a surviving family member; however, the types and amount of financial compensation available to survivors are more significant than damages recoverable by the estate.

If your loved one’s injuries were not immediately fatal, you may have grounds to pursue a separate survivorship action on his or her behalf. A survivorship action allows a claimant to file a personal injury claim your loved one could have brought against a negligible party had he or she survived.

Much of the legal proceedings involved in a wrongful death lawsuit occur outside of the courtroom, where extensive documentation is meticulously researched and crafted to include the critical elements that determine whether a lawsuit is dismissed or significantly weakened.

Understanding the pre-trial process in a wrongful death lawsuit can ultimately benefit the claimant as most cases are resolved through negotiated settlements before trial.

There are several stages of the claims process:

  • Pre-trial investigation and research
  • Legal research
  • Pre-lawsuit negotiations with insurance companies
  • Wrongful death lawsuit commencement
  • Discovery process, including requests for admission, interrogatories, depositions, and requests for production of documents
  • Handling motions for summary judgment
  • Trial preparation

The legal complexities involved in a wrongful death claim are numerous, and claimants can obtain a significant advantage by seeking the legal counsel of an experienced Naples wrongful death attorney who understands the laws governing the underlying causes of injury.

5 / 5 stars
I can't say enough about not only the attorneys handling the case, I'd like to include the staff. Too often, it seems people get lost in the shuffle when dealing with unpleasant issues, such as a motor vehicle accident. I was hit by a vehicle without insurance, and thought all was lost. In addition to getting my medical bills negotiated down to a level that were able to be paid by my small policy, they did so with an amount of recovery I didn't expect. All the while, everyone involved were very attentive and most important.....very nice. That goes a long way in what otherwise is a very stressful event. I can't imagine I'd send a referral to anyone else.
