Wrongful Death

No one deserves to feel the pain of losing a loved one to another's negligence. Losing someone you care about is hard enough, but knowing that his or her death could have been avoided is devastating. At Platt Hopwood Attorneys at Law PLLC, our lawyers are here for families with serious injury claims, including those who have lost someone unfairly.

You may be able to bring a wrongful death claim if you have lost someone in a fatal accident. While legal action cannot erase the pain, it can help your family recoup financial damages such as lost wages, medical bills, funeral expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering.

Who can bring a wrongful death suit? According to Florida law, the spouse, parents or children of the deceased may recover damages with a wrongful death claim. In addition, any adoptive sibling or blood relative may bring a claim if they were dependent on the deceased for "support or services."
