Common Wrongful Death Claims in Florida

Wrongful death lawsuits are based on negligence and wrongful acts, which can include several different scenarios and circumstances. Florida Statutes section 768.19 defines a wrongful death as, "When the death of a person is caused by the wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract or warranty of any person."

Common types of wrongful death cases in Florida include:

Because the circumstances of each wrongful death claim are unique, it can be incredibly difficult to prove liability. An attorney will not only help you navigate the legal proceedings but will also help gather the evidence and testimonials necessary to build the strongest case possible.

Compensation for Family Members - Pick Porter!™

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.

    "He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community."

    I first met Jason Porter in 2003, when our children attended a Christian Preschool together. I saw what he did within our community. He helped many of the families from the preschool over the years so when it came time that my family needed a lawyer I chose him. Jason has helped my family and several of my personal friends, all with positive outcomes. He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community. You will be treated with the utmost respect and compassion. I don't know another lawyer of his caliber that offers free consultations and you speak to him personally. Pick Porter.

    "Jason answered all my emails and phone calls."
    There is nothing like the fear and uncertainty the legal system brings to keep you up at night, especially when it involves your child. For this reason selecting an attorney was one of the most daunting and important decisions I made; after much research that’s why I chose Jason Porter. Throughout the legal process Jason answered all my emails and phone calls, he figuratively provided the hand holding my son and mostly I needed to be reassured the outcome would be in our favor. Needless to say the outcome was in our favor and I could not have been more pleased with Jason’s service. I was so pleased with Jason’s professionalism and legal savvy that I asked if he practices law outside of criminal defense, so I could use his services for all my legal needs. He will always receive my business in the future.
