call today: 727-381-9200

With our subtropical climate and great entertainment and dining options, St Petersburg is easy for its residents to love. But when you lose a loved one due to the reckless or negligent actions of someone else, every day can be difficult to find happiness in. If you've lost a loved one because of an accident, you shouldn't have to struggle financially.

Our attorneys have decades of experience in fighting for those who've lost loved ones. We will make them pay and get you the compensation - and the justice - that you deserve.

Why Seek Compensation?

Many people feel that since nothing can bring their loved ones back, that seeking compensation is just something that can drag out the grieving process. However, the reality is that seeking compensation is well worth doing - for numerous reasons.

  • It can provide a sense of closure to the bereaved
  • It helps replace the lost income from losing a loved one
  • It can help you focus on mourning and grief rather than financial hardship
  • It allows you to avoid medical bills that are left behind

In short, compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit is something that can help you pick up the pieces of your life and move on following an accidental death of a loved one. It won't bring them back, but it can help those who are left live fully again.

Who Can Seek Compensation?

Under Florida law, blood relatives who have lost a loved one can seek restitution following the loss of life. Family members who can seek compensation include:

  • Parents
  • Children
  • Spouse
  • Blood relatives who relied on the deceased for services or support
  • Adoptive siblings who depended on the deceased as well

It's also important to remember that you have a limited period of time to seek compensation. If you don't file a claim of wrongful death within 2 years of the date of death, you can't seek compensation in this way at all. As such, it's important to contact our attorneys as soon as possible to get the ball rolling and let us start fighting to get you what you deserve.

What Damages Can You Be Paid For?

A wrongful death settlement will award damages based on a variety of different things. Some of the factors that will be include in settlements will likely include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of income estimated over the average lifespan of the deceased
  • Loss of parental or spousal companionship
  • Loss of parental guidance

Each settlement is unique, but these basic points are used as the fundamentals of a settlement. Your attorney will work with medical and economic experts to develop a solid estimate for what can be a fair settlement offer, then they'll negotiate with the other side to help get you what you deserve - and if needed, our team will go to the courts and fight for your compensation there. We're tireless, fierce advocates for our clients.

Proving Negligence

In a St Petersburg wrongful death lawsuit, you must be able to show that the party responsible for the death of your loved one acted in a manner that was reckless or negligent. In general, this means you must show that they behaved in a way that any reasonable person would consider to be negligent. This can include:

  • Failure to maintain a safe property or warn visitors of any safety risks
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Failure to yield to pedestrians
  • Failure to follow traffic laws
  • And more

In order to do this, you'll need a good St Petersburg wrongful death attorney on your side.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
