How To Pursue A Wrongful Death Claim in Florida

Listen as Kissimmee wrongful death attorney, Charlie Draper discusses how to pursue a wrongful death claim and the time limits to do so following a car accident in Florida.

Following a tragedy such as this, I recommend that you hire an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney will help develop evidence to negotiate with the insurance company following their low settlement offer.

Also, an attorney will have the court appoint a personal representative to represent the survivors. Survivors such as widows or children are entitled to different compensation, and these claims have to be developed. The estate does have a separate claim for expenses incurred, as well.

Finally, the personal representative must file the lawsuit, if needed, by two years from the date of the accident. A couple of important things to remember are that this only pertains to car accidents in Florida, and the time limit is subject to change. Watch the video to learn more.

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
