What Happens When a Person Dies in a Car Accident?

The loss felt after the death of a loved one is different from any pain we will feel in our lifetime. Rage, fear, and emptiness often occur after we lose someone close to us. It is during those times we need to rely on our loved ones, on our faith, and look for those in whom we can find support. If the negligent actions of another person, company, or employer caused your loved one an injury that led to wrongful death, our Miami injury lawyers will fight for victims and families. We believe that justice is deserved for such negligence.

When we seek a wrongful death claim, the victim’s family must be able to prove that their loved one died as a result of an unfair act and the negligence of another. Our firm helps clients determine fault in the cases of auto and motorcycles accidents, as well as other serious accidents that cause injuries. We understand that after the death of a loved one, families will struggle to pay for medical expenses and domestic bills with little or no income.

In the state of Florida, the wrongful death statute establishes a time limit with families for the filing of a wrongful death claim. This limit is two years from the day the loved one died. Starting legal action as soon as possible to ensure that you meet that deadline should be your main interest. Our attorneys will begin an investigation once evidence and testimonies have been gathered to support your claim, but it is important to act immediately.
