The loss of a loved one is a painful and difficult experience, especially when it was caused unexpectedly by the negligence or wrongful act of another. Florida law has created a system wherein surviving family members can be compensated if the untimely loss of a loved one was a result of the negligence, carelessness, or wrongful act of another person or entity.

Common accidents that result in wrongful death claims may include:

  • Car accident

  • Truck accident

  • Motorcycle accident

  • Bicycle accident

  • Boating accident

  • Construction accident

  • Nursing home accident

  • Defective product accident

  • Medical malpractice accident

  • Drowning accident


While no amount of money can ever replace a life that has been lost, it’s important to make sure that your family’s finances are protected from medical expenses that may have been incurred as a result of the wrongful act. Additionally, you are entitled to compensation for the loss of income, support, and companionship you will now experience for the rest of your life.

If you believe that the untimely loss of a loved one was a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful acts, then you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Florida law places a time limit on when you may pursue a wrongful death claim. At Ruckle Law, P.A., we will answer any questions you may have, put your interests above our own, and fight vigorously on your behalf to make sure that justice is served for your loss.
