Fatal Car Accidents
Most automobile accident injury cases involve serious and even catastrophic, crippling injuries. A handful are even more destructive, resulting in the death of a provider, a caregiver or a beloved child. The law can’t restore people’s lives, but it can provide financial compensation for these losses.
Fatal Car Accidents Cause An Uncertain Future

Florida law allows the same compensation for survivors of wrongful death accidents as for injury victims who do not die: lost time from work, health care costs prior to death, and pain and suffering leading up to death. In addition, Florida wrongful death claim compensation includes:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of the deceased person’s future income
- Loss of services the deceased would have provided
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of care, love and companionship
- Loss of consortium
Motor vehicle accidents are not the only cause of wrongful death. Read more information about other kinds of accidental death.
In the wake of the loss to your family, filing a civil suit is probably the last thing on your mind. At the same time, the state imposes a statute of limitations on these kinds of claims. We invite you to speak with one of our lawyers sooner, rather than later, to protect your family’s interests.
