Wrongful Death in Tampa

Losing a loved one is a tragic circumstance that can never completely be compensated or resolved. One of the most difficult situations you may ever have to face is that of losing a loved one to a wrongful death incident. In these cases, you hold the knowledge that the child, parent, friend, spouse, or other loved one would still be alive if the act of negligent or reckless act had never occurred. Although wrongful death lawsuits can only provide a minimal amount of relief to the survivors of the decedent, compensation is worth pursuing. With the guidance of our Tampa personal injury attorneys, you can have the confidence to pursue the damages you deserve.

What damages can I recover?

When a death occurs due to the negligence of another individual, our legal system permits monetary damages to be recovered by filing a wrongful death claim. If you plan on filing a claim for damages for the loss of your loved one, you are limited by a two-year statute of limitations. Within two years of the date of your loved one's passing, you must file a wrongful death claim to recover the compensation you deserve. Failure to file within this period can prohibit you from recovering compensation for the death of your loved one. You may be able to recover damages for medical bills, funeral costs, and expenses to rebuild your family's life. If the decedent was the primary financial provider of the family, additional financial resources may be pursued through a compensation claim or litigation.

When you begin your pursuit of damages for a wrongful death case, you need to choose to be represented by a loyal and dependable law firm. At the Law Offices of John V.
