The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine handles wrongful death cases in Clearwater when someone passes away due to another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. If this happened to your loved one, we may be able to seek financial recovery for you.
A Clearwater wrongful death lawyer from our team can handle your case while you work through your loss. We can start with a free initial consultation, and if you choose to work with us, you’ll pay nothing upfront or out of pocket.
We Can Help You Determine if You are Eligible for Compensation
Florida Statutes § 768.21 explains who is eligible to receive compensation for wrongful death. Qualified parties can include the decedent’s:
- Biological children
- One or both parents
- Adoptive children
- Personal representative
Our team can review your case to determine if you are eligible for compensation. We may also determine whether any of your family members also qualify for financial recovery.
Circumstances that Qualify a Death as Wrongful
Not every death falls into the category of wrongful death, but your loved one’s may. The factor that generally establishes whether wrongful death laws apply is negligence.
Negligence is present when a person displays “careless or thoughtless conduct or a failure to act when a reasonable person would have acted” (American Bar Association (ABA). This definition means that many circumstances can qualify a death as wrongful, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Accidents from hazards on the premises
- Medical errors
- Defective products
- Boating accidents
- Biking and pedestrian accidents
Our team will review the facts around your loved one’s death to determine if their passing qualifies you to seek compensation. If it does, a Clearwater wrongful death lawyer from our firm could represent you and your family.
Forms of Coverage that You may be Entitled to Collect
Wrongful death cases involve damages of different types. We will pursue compensation that addresses each of your family’s losses. As such, your financial recovery could include coverage for:
- Your pain and suffering
- Your loved one’s funeral expenses
- The loss of your loved one’s past and future income
- The loss of spousal companionship
- The loss of parental instruction and guidance
Some of these cases involve additional losses, like property damage. Our firm can handle everything when it comes to identifying, calculating, and seeking coverage for your losses. You do not have to worry about your financial recovery. While you worry about getting better, we’ll take care of everything else.

Hiring a Lawyer from Our Firm Costs You Nothing Out of Pocket
We do not want the cost of hiring a lawyer to be a barrier to you. This is one reason why our firm does not require any upfront or out-of-pocket payment from you. We will handle your wrongful death case for a contingency fee, so you don’t pay if we don’t win. A contingency fee pay structure means that:
- We have a financial motivation to win for you.
- You only have to pay us a fee if we secure a judgment or settlement.
- We charge a one-time percentage of your winnings.
- Under no circumstances do you have to pay us from your existing financial resources.
A contingency fee puts our firm and your family in the same boat. We don’t get paid unless you do.
