What Are The Time Limits I Have To File A Wrongful Death Claim In Florida?

If you have lost your loved one and believe you have a wrongful death claim against a nursing home, legal action may be necessary to recover for your losses and the suffering your loved one went through. When pursuing a wrongful death claim in Florida, it’s good to be aware of the time limits in which you can bring that claim. There is a fixed period of time that a claim for wrongful death can be filed following the death of a loved one.

This time period is called the statute of limitations, which is two years from the date of wrongful death in Florida. This means that you must file a claim within that time period or else you will be barred from making a lawsuit against the nursing home. If you miss this window of time, you will miss the chance of holding the negligent party accountable and collecting compensation you are due.

To make sure you don’t lose the opportunity to file a claim to pursue justice and just compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one, you should meet with a lawyer as soon as possible following your loved one’s death. Contact our offices today to speak with Attorney David Benenfeld.
