Wrongful Death cases may arise because of a variety of incidents, including car accidents, aviation accidents, and medical malpractice. The Clekis Law Firm, P.A. wants to make sure that the surviving family is compensated for their loss to the fullest extent of the law.
What Is A Wrongful Death Claim?.
A wrongful death case involves a family member who was killed because of the negligence of someone else. For example, if a parent has a child who is killed in an automobile accident because of the negligence of another driver, that parent is able to bring a wrongful death action or lawsuit against that third party.

Ask Our Wrongful Death Lawyer About the Statute of Limitations
The laws in all states establish a timeframe in which a wrongful death lawsuit must be called. This is called the statute of limitations. If a lawsuit in a wrongful death case is not filed by that deadline, you likely will be forever precluded from obtaining compensation for the wrongful death of a family member.
During the initial consultation with our wrongful death lawyer, it is crucial that you discuss the statute of limitations and the date the accident occurred to ensure that all deadlines associated with the case are met.
