Port Orange Wrongful Death Attorney

Compassionate Guidance in Times of Loss

Losing a loved one is an immense tragedy, and no amount of compensation can ever replace their presence. However, seeking monetary recovery through a wrongful death claim can help you provide for your family's needs and cope with the financial burdens that arise. At Politis & Matovina, P.A., we understand the pain and confusion surrounding the wrongful death claims process. Our experienced Port Orange wrongful death lawyers offer compassionate representation, guiding you through the legal complexities and advocating for justice on your behalf.

Why Hire a Lawyer for a Wrongful Death Claim?

Insurance companies often offer inadequate settlements to minimize their costs, leaving you to deal with the aftermath emotionally and financially. Our assertive approach with insurance companies is aimed at obtaining fair compensation for your losses, covering funeral expenses, loss of consortium, potential income, pain and suffering, and emotional support. In addition to our vigorous advocacy, we provide personal care, answering your questions and offering advice to help you understand your options.

What Damages Are Available in a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Florida, damages for wrongful death claims can be awarded to surviving family members and the decedent's estate. Surviving family members may seek compensation for abstract losses, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of companionship and guidance. They can also recover medical or funeral expenses paid on behalf of the deceased. Damages for the decedent's estate typically cover quantifiable losses like lost wages, property damage, and medical and funeral expenses.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Florida is two years from the date of death, meaning you typically have until the second anniversary of your loved one’s passing to pursue a legal claim against those responsible. Exceptions may apply, so it's essential to consult an attorney promptly to determine your specific time frame.

Facing a wrongful death claim is overwhelming, but you don't have to go through it alone. Our Port Orange wrongful death attorneys at Politis & Matovina, P.A. approach each case with compassion and dedication. We understand your unique needs and concerns and offer support throughout the process.
