Wrongful Death

Tampa Wrongful Death Attorney

Have you lost a loved one? We're here for you.

The loss of a loved one is a tragic situation that one may never fully recover from. Knowing that your parent, child, spouse or other family member would still be with us today, had another person not been negligent or reckless, makes the situation unbearable.

The purpose of a wrongful death suit is to provide relief to the surviving family members of a person who has lost his or her life due to the negligent conduct of another. The emotional, psychological injury sustained from the loss of a loved one is immeasurable. There are also financial difficulties a family may experience, only making the situation worse. By bringing the responsible party to justice and recovering money for physical, financial and emotional damages, however, those who have lost a loved one can seek some relief.

Florida Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

In Florida wrongful death cases, special consideration is given to the statute of limitation, which is generally a two-year period from the date of the decedent's death. You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation, but keep in mind that a lawsuit must be filed prior to the expiration of that statute of limitations. As such, a Tampa personal injury lawyer at our firm should hear your case as soon as possible.

At the end of the day, friends, family, and loved ones have to choose a law firm that they feel comfortable with, and have confidence in. The lawyers at Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law are distinguished former prosecutors and esteemed litigators, with skills and experience devoted to getting to the root cause of such tragic losses and championing the rights of the victimized.
