Receive legal guidance for wrongful death cases
We understand that no amount of money can replace a parent or child. Often, the surviving family members are too preoccupied with grief to contemplate lawsuits against possible at-fault parties, and rightly so. The team at Catherine Gemma Law will confidentially counsel families about their rights and potential causes of action if your loved one is killed because of the wrongful conduct of another person or corporate entity. We try to make the process as least intrusive as possible. It is important for those who have lost loved ones to understand that special laws apply to cases involving death. Wrongful Death statutes vary from state to state and define who may sue and the type of damages that may be recovered.
In particular, families must keep in mind that the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim in Florida is only 2 years. Most other negligence-based law suits like car accidents and slip and falls have 4-year statutes. This means that if you do not file a lawsuit within 2 years of death, you can never bring a lawsuit. There are very few exceptions to that harsh rule. This very short statute of limitations can run very fast when a person is in mourning and the last thing on their mind is a lawsuit about money.
