Wrongful Death Lawyer
Losing a loved one to an accident that wasn't their fault is devastating. You shouldn't be financially responsible for the aftermath.
A wrongful death lawsuit can help you secure compensation for funeral costs, medical bills, and more.
Let the wrongful death lawyers at Moody Law, P.A. serving Winter Haven, FL, fight on your behalf while you and your family focus on healing.
You Have 2 Years to File Your Wrongful Death Claim
In the state of Florida, families of a deceased person have just two years from the date of their accident to file a wrongful death claim. Failure to do so can mean your family misses out on compensation. This is why it's so important to put an attorney on your side as soon as possible. Don't miss out on compensation—file your wrongful death claim today.
Understanding Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is any death that occurs as the result of a negligent third party. A wrongful death claim can be brought forth by the personal representative of the deceased person's estate. In wrongful death cases, survivors can obtain compensation for the losses they've incurred after losing a loved one. This can include compensation for:
- Medial costs
- Funeral costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
Whether your loved one succumbed to an injury they sustained in a medical malpractice case, car accident, motorcycle accident, or another event, our wrongful death attorneys serving Winter Haven can help from our Lakeland legal office, our Bartow legal office, or our Tampa medical malpractice office.

A 21-year-old man was known to suffer epileptic seizures.

A grandmother was exiting a fast food restaurant when she tripped over a bar that was protruding from the pavement. She fell and hit her head, resulting in her death.

Your Wrongful Death Claim Can Help Others
While many families aim to secure compensation for lost wages, funerary expenses, and loss of companionship, punitive damages can also be awarded if the party responsible for the wrongful death is found to have acted intentionally or with particular negligence. Punitive damages are intended to encourage greater care on the defendant's part in the future and discourage others from performing similar actions. Your wrongful death lawsuit may be what saves another person's life down the line.
Florida's Comparative Negligence Law
Florida has a comparative negligence law, meaning that if your loved one is determined to be at least 51% at fault for their accident, no recovery will be possible for their family. Additionally, if they are determined to be a percentage at fault for the accident, the recovery is reduced by that amount. Our team of attorneys can help paint an accurate picture of your loved one's accident, determine who was the at-fault party, and go after the compensation you deserve.
Filing a Personal
If you or your loved one survived the personal injuries sustained in a medical malpractice case, car accident, motorcycle accident, or other event, our lawyers can help with that, too. You shouldn't be responsible for medical bills, ongoing care, and lost wages that are the result of another person's actions. Our lawyers are here to help make things right for the people of Winter Haven. Contact us today.
