Jacksonville Wrongful Death Lawyer

Need to file a wrongful death lawsuit? Call (904) 701-0591.

Did another person's negligent actions result in the death of a loved one? You deserve to be compensated for your tragic loss. No amount of money will ever replace the companionship and support of a family member, but a settlement may help to ease your suffering and make it easier for you to move on. At the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., our Jacksonville wrongful death lawyers sincerely want to help you achieve the best possible outcome and have the skills to represent you in preparing your claim and dealing with insurance companies. Call us today for a consultation and to learn how much your claim may be worth.

Section 786.16 of the Florida Statutes provides for the right of survivors to file a wrongful death claim, with the goal of shifting the losses resulting from the accident from the family to the wrongdoer. You can pursue legal action on behalf of your spouse, parent, child or any other blood relative or adoptive sibling upon whom you have been dependent. Children are allowed to seek remedies up to the age of 25. The law stipulates that damages should be calculated liberally, and may include:

  • Lost support and services, including the amount of income your family could reasonably expect to have derived from the decedent in the future
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Mental pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses incurred during treatment for the illness or injury
  • Funeral expenses

Compensation for Family Members

Wrongful death lawsuits are based on negligence, such as in car accidents, boating accidents, and medical malpractice, as well as wrongful acts including drunk-driving accidents, dog bites, and nursing home abuse. It is highly advisable to speak with Jacksonville wrongful death attorney from our firm before accepting a settlement from the insurance company, as your claim may be worth far more than you have been offered. Insurance carriers are eager to limit their financial losses, and will often attempt to take advantage of a grieving family's anxiety to recover compensation by offering a quick settlement with a waiver of the right to pursue further damages.

Seek justice and closure for your family today. Dial (904) 701-0591 or contact us online to take the first step towards filing a claim.
