Miami Wrongful
Death Attorney

When you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or deliberate wrongdoing of another, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death compensation claim. This is a form of compensation available to immediate family members of a person who has lost their life due to the injuries they sustained in an accident.

Some of the most common wrongful death claims seen by our North Miami wrongful death attorneys include:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Wrongly prescribed or administered medication
  • Car accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Medical errors
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Product liability claims
  • Fatal slip and fall injuries

This list is by no means exhaustive, and our attorneys are ready and able to ensure you receive maximum compensation however your loved one’s wrongful death occurred.

Am I
Eligible To File A
Wrongful Death Lawsuit
In North Miami, Florida?

Under Florida law, as is applicable in North Miami, wrongful death compensation can only be claimed by the deceased’s personal representative. This representative must work with a wrongful death attorney to make a claim on behalf of the deceased’s estate, and each individual survivor, including:

  • The deceased’s spouse
  • The deceased’s children
  • The deceased’s parents
  • The deceased’s blood relatives
  • The deceased’s adoptive relatives, in certain circumstances

More than one eligible survivor may join the lawsuit at any point during proceedings, but none are legally obligated to do so.

The deceased’s personal representative must file the wrongful death lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations, which in Florida is two years from the date of death. There are some specific circumstances in which this deadline can be extended but, in general, two years will be the maximum limit.

If you feel that you may be eligible to claim wrongful death compensation, it is strongly recommended that you speak to an experienced North Miami wrongful death attorney immediately to avoid unnecessary delays.

Damages Can Be
Collected In A North
Miami Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

As well as having strict regulations surrounding the eligible claimants of wrongful death compensation, Florida law also dictates what this compensation can cover. While filing your North Miami wrongful death lawsuit, you should bear in mind that the damages you can collect are not the same as if your relative had survived and was filing for personal injury-related compensation.

In a wrongful death suit, qualifying surviving family members can claim damages in respect of:

  • Medical expenses incurred between the time of injury and time of death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Mental and emotional suffering due to the loss
  • Loss of companionship and consortium
  • Lost earnings, along with any other benefits the deceased would have received and contributed to the household, had they survived
  • Loss of any prospective net accumulations for the deceased’s estate
