Helping the Families of Wrongful Death Victims in Panama City

Florida Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations is a time-frame in which you are able to file a claim for personal injury. In Florida, you generally have two years from the time of the death to file a wrongful death claim. This means that if you do not file a claim in that amount of time, your request may be barred.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2017, the total number of wrongful deaths as a result of unintentional injuries was recorded at 169,936. If you believe that your loved one passed away due to the negligence of another, it is crucial that you seek justice by bringing your case to Anderson & Hart, P.A. as soon as possible. Our Tallahassee wrongful death lawyers can determine the deadline your claim is under and begin the work needed to pursue legal action.
