Wrongful Death Attorney
Taking a Stand for Grieving Victims
Christopher Doty understands the pain and trauma you suffer due to the wrongful death of a loved one. Any death is hard to endure but when it’s due to an accident or the negligence of others, it’s especially difficult. While you may not want to get involved in litigation, unlike other personal injury cases that happen in where negligence can be remedied with financial compensation when someone dies, when it is wrongful death you will need the services of an experienced wrongful death attorney. If you feel you have had a family member die a wrongful death due to an accident or the negligence of others, call or contact the Law Office of Christopher A Doty.
Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, which governs accidents that result in death, permits claimants to file a wrongful death lawsuit against an at-fault party within four years from the incident, per the state’s statute of limitations.
What are Some Examples of Wrongful Death?
While every state has similar statutes governing wrongful death, there are various levels of compensation for damages. For example, a spouse is entitled to compensation for the loss of companionship, support, and love from the deceased. Depending on the age of the couple, we can calculate a fair and just dollar amount to claim in your lawsuit.
When the wrongful or negligent death leaves minor children as survivors, other conditions factor into the settlement. The state of Florida deems a minor any person from a newborn to someone in their early twenties. In these cases, children are entitled to recover compensation for the loss of affection, financial support, and guidance. Another factor allows for the survivors to receive additional compensation for the loss of wealth that would have been accrued by the wrongful or negligent death victim.
