If your family member died in a wrongful death accident in Florida, you may want to hire an attorney but are concerned about the cost. However, most wrongful death personal injury attorneys, including Browning Law Firm, work on a contingency fee basis. That means, they only get paid when you receive compensation, and they receive a percentage of the final settlement as payment for their work. You don’t pay out-of-pocket expenses or any money up front, and most attorneys offer a free consultation for potential clients.
Risks of Not Hiring a Lawyer for Your Case
Not hiring an attorney for a wrongful death case comes with risks. Without the help of an experienced wrongful death attorney, you may not get the compensation you deserve for the loss of your loved one. That compensation can include both economic and non-economic losses associated with the death:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Loss of income and benefits
- Funeral expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional distress
- Punitive damages
In Florida, there is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death case. In cases where the person is killed intentionally, the limit may be longer than two years. An attorney will make sure your claim is filed to meet the statute of limitations.
In addition to filing your case within the necessary timeframe, some other ways an attorney will help with your wrongful death case include:
- Investigate and gather necessary evidence related to the death
- Calculate possible compensation
- Represent you if the case goes to trail
