In Florida, we have a very distinct set of rules under the Wrongful Death
Statute, and these requirements are first, that the court must appoint a
personal representative. The personal representatives brings the action on
behalf of the survivors, and if the personal representative is qualified to
serve, and it's important, the personal representative is duly authorized
to bring the claim and satisfy the claim in terms of the settlement with
the at-fault party. But that will be one of the first steps in a wrongful
death case is to have the appropriate person appointed as the personal
representative in the estate to bring the action on behalf of the
survivors. We assist clients in appointing the personal representative. We
file all the paperwork, which basically is a petition to appoint the
personal representative and to begin the probate of the estate. Once that
order is in place, then we can bring claims. We can assist the client in
whatever need needs to be, assist the personal representative, and
hopefully getting that family back together and back on track.
If you have a family member or a loved one who has died as a result of
someone else's negligence, my firm would be more than happy to talk to you
at no charge. There is no fee unless there is a recovery in the case. We
can consult with you, and if there is a case there and we think that we can
help you, then certainly we are happy to do that and happy to try and mend
your family as best we can.
