Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. When the loss is the result of someone else’s neglect, such as a car accident, trip and fall, or pedestrian accident, the pain from that loss hurts even more.
Florida law can be complex. When a loved is taken because of someone else’s neglect, Florida’s Wrongful Death Act comes in to play. This statute, designed to help expedite closure to families who have lost loved ones, can also cause families additional pain. For instance, Florida’s Wrongful Death Act provides that the statute of limitations for a wrongful death action is 2 years. Failing to hire a lawyer and bring your claim within 2 years risks being unable to bring your claim at all.
The loss of a loved one can weigh heavily on those of us left behind. Speaking to a wrongful death lawyer about the loss of a loved one is never easy and while hiring a lawyer may not be something you want to do. However, in order to preserve your rights, it is something you should do. An estate may need to be opened, evidence may need to be preserved before it is lost or destroyed, and an investigation into the untimely loss must begin.
