Determining the Value of Your Wrongful Death Claim
Our legal team will work with you to document the actual damages associated with your loss and determine a monetary value for those damages. The value may potentially include some or all of the following items:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Lost support and services before death
- The projected loss of support and services
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship, consort, protection, and care
The value of your claim will also depend on your relationship to the deceased, their age at the time of death, their (and your) life expectancy, and the nature of the event or accident that led to their passing. We can assist you in determining which types of benefits you may include in your claim.

One of our Wrongful Death Lawyers Will Fight for You & Your Family
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we understand how important it is to seek the compensation you and your family needs – and deserves – for the loss of your loved one.
We will stand by your side and advocate for you, protecting your legal rights and representing you in your Jacksonville wrongful death claim.
We will offer the following services:
We will begin by assembling the necessary documentation for your claim, including details about the incident that led to your loved one’s death. We may seek out police reports, statements from witnesses, and other documentation. If necessary, we will obtain testimony from doctors, safety experts, or accident reconstruction specialists.
We will also establish liability by demonstrating the legal elements of negligence as they relate to the accident. To accomplish this task, we must prove that the at-fault party had a duty of care to the deceased. We must further show that the at-fault party breached their duty of care, causing the accident that led to your loved one’s death.
Negotiate on Your Behalf
Once we submit your claim to the at-fault party or their insurance company, we will push for their claims adjusters and lawyers to begin the negotiation process. At this challenging time, we understand the importance of getting you an equitable settlement as quickly as possible.
Take Your Case to Court
If the insurance company does not engage in settlement negotiations in good faith, we will stand ready to move forward with a lawsuit. Whatever it takes, we will dedicate our team to working for the quickest and best possible result for your case.
The Statute of Limitations Restricts Your Time to File Suit
In most cases, we will start a case by seeking a settlement through negotiations. However, we may need to file suit – and in this case, we will need to consider the statute of limitations.
You have just two years to file a lawsuit for a wrongful death case in the state of Florida, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d). For this reason, we advise that you get started on your case as soon as possible. We also advise starting early in order to begin collecting important evidence to build your case.

How to Know When You Can Bring a Wrongful Death Case
Essentially, if we can show that someone else’s negligence led to your loved one’s injuries and their passing, we can help you bring a wrongful death case. A wrongful death may have been caused by unintentional or intentional negligence.
So, if you lost your loved one due to a criminal act, we can also help you seek compensation through a wrongful death case. A criminal case against the defendant may proceed in addition to any case you bring for compensation.
We can help you understand whether or not you can bring a wrongful death case.
