Wrongful death lawsuits are designed to ensure that justice is served and that all responsible parties pay for what they’ve done. A wrongful death lawsuit is also designed to compensate surviving family members for the financial and emotional hardships that they have endured as a result of their loved one's death. Before you can legally file a claim, however, there are certain requirements that must be met. The experienced Tallahassee wrongful death attorneys at Shapiro Law Firm provide a brief description of those requirements below to help you determine whether or not you have a valid wrongful death claim.
If you think that you might have a wrongful death claim on your hands, it’s best that you get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible. Even though surviving family members are dealing with the trauma of their loss, they only have a certain amount of time in which to file wrongful death lawsuits, which is known as a statute of limitations.
Wrongful death lawsuits can be complex and can take a while to resolve, which means that you want to make sure that you have expert witnesses and evidence, which a wrongful death lawyer can help you with.
