When a loved one passes away suddenly, it can be difficult to know where to turn. The crux of a wrongful death claim rests on negligence. Under Florida Statute 768.19, wrongful death is described as an event that is caused by “the wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract or warranty of a person.” Essentially, if a loved one passed away due to the negligence of another party, you have the right to pursue compensation.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we want to be part of your legal support system during this challenging time. Our goal is to hold the party responsible for your loved one’s passing accountable for their actions. If your case is successful, you may be able to recover the cost of funeral expenses, loss of consortium, and expenses relating to your loved one’s medical care.
You have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a civil action, per Florida Statute 95.11. While this deadline may be a source of stress for you and your family, an Oviedo wrongful death lawyer can get started on your case today.

Pursuing Damages in a Wrongful Death Case
If you want to seek damages in a wrongful death case, you will have to prove that the party (or parties) in question were, in fact, legally liable for your loved one’s death. In some cases, claimants are able to settle with the responsible party without having to go to court. In other wrongful death cases, the legal process is not so smooth. That is where an Oviedo wrongful death lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can step in to help.
To establish liability in your case, your lawyer can:
- Examine any photographs or video evidence from the accident scene
- Get written and recorded statements from eyewitnesses, if available
- Inspect autopsy reports with the help of a medical consultant
- Calculate the cost of your economic and noneconomic damages
